July 17 – Update & Survey


As you may have heard from Dr. Hinshaw yesterday, there have been new guidelines released to operators for outdoor and indoor visits. We just received the information this morning, and are going through it to glean all of the important information.

The good news is that we’ve been given some flexibility to create our own approach to meet the needs of our residents, while still meeting certain standards and protocols. This also comes with a lot of responsibility to ensure that we have an accurate sense of the risk appetite in our community.

Please click on the link below and take 5 minutes to provide your input: (We would appreciate your input by this Monday afternoon, July 20!)

Family & Friends – Risk Tolerance Assessment

Feel free to share the survey with anyone who is not on this email list. The more feedback, the better!

A similar survey was also distributed to the residents today, to make sure they have input as well. We will send out Emmanuel Home’s ‘Safe Visiting Policy’ by Wednesday afternoon, which will include a full list of the changes & expectations. The guidelines will take effect on Thursday, July 23.
