Grand Opening Update: CDC Guidance on Mask Wearing


To: Residents of Covenant Village From: Dale Melton, CEO

Date: May 14, 2021

We all were interested in the latest CDC Guidance on Mask Wearing! What a tremendous marker in time in our response to the COVID pandemic.

As we all would understand, the implications for community living, particularly in a Health Center environment in a continuing care retirement community, are important.  While the new CDC Guidance is a helpful action, we must continue to be careful in our Village.

As a result, we will incorporate the new CDC Guidance on Mask Wearing in these ways:

  • Anyone visiting or moving through the Health Center must be masked
  • If you are vaccinated and in an apartment, a cottage, or a common area in the apartment buildings on floors that are not a part of the Health Center, you do not need to wear a mask
  • If you are not vaccinated, you must wear a mask at all times, until you are fully vaccinated.

Some in our Village may decide on their own to continue to wear a mask. That is their personal choice, and one we all will respect.  Please to not ask anyone whether or not they are vaccinated.  That is an individual decision. We will respect all who do wear a mask—for whatever reason.

We will continue to provide the latest information via community memos; Covenant Conversations on Facebook and Wellzesta; the Covenant Village website(https://covenantvillagenc.com/); and on our Facebook page.
