We know some of you may be concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) being reported in the media and how it may impact our communities. Ensuring residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our greatest concern.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recommended a variety of steps that we are implementing to help reduce the potential for the virus to enter our building. However, we need your help in battling COVID-19.
Noble Senior Services created a toolkit aimed to protect our residents, families, and staff against COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. Below are some examples of how you can help protect the residents, as well as prevent the spread throughout the community.
Feel free to use any of the following tools for your purposes.
