We are anticipating a third winter storm to pass through, starting sometime Friday evening, with modest snow accumulations projected. This is the third week in a row for our area! As we all anticipate this next round, please know that your CV Leadership and Staff continue their efforts preparing for the worst- case scenarios and hoping for another manageable experience.
As we have said each week, we all would do well to remember that during inclement weather situations our overall #1 priority on campus is to provide access from the Welcome Center to our Health Center (HC). Times like these are when we serve as a healthcare provider, first and foremost. For Cottage Residents, while we focus on the main access to campus, driveways are not cleared.
If you need emergency care or need to be assessed, please do not hesitate to call the Arbor Wing Nurses Station (704.917.7857) or activate your call bells or pendants!
This morning we have only four (4) active COVID cases. All are Staff. That number has dropped from eight (8) since last week. Additionally, we only have one (1) Staff member out showing symptoms.
On the continued good news front, our recent round of COVID testing of HC Residents came back with NO active cases! We are months removed from the last Resident case.
As a result of your resilience and focus, as well as the incredible Staff care, we will resume limited group gatherings starting Monday, January 31st. The only group gatherings we continue to hold off on will be gatherings that are led by individuals outside Covenant Village—Chapel, certain Craft classes, and outside clubs—like Garden Clubs or Church Circles. We hope to resume those gatherings within the next couple of weeks.
Julia and the Food & Nutrition Team will resume Dining Room service for Residents—using the schedule implemented prior to the recent limitation on group gatherings. Julia is sending out a memo to remind you of that schedule.
Residents can resume gathering in common areas. Everyone should continue to physically distance and wear masks when out.
Please continue to monitor yourself and any symptoms. Do not hesitated to call the Arbor Wing Nurses Station (704.917.7857) with any concerns or questions.
Covenant Village is strong and resilient, because you are strong and resilient. Even now, we see how Covenant Village is Where Life Is Filled With Promise!
We will continue to provide the latest information via community memos; Covenant Conversations; the Covenant Village website (www.covenantvillagenc.com); on our Facebook page; and our Resident Portal— Wellzesta.
