Between baking cookies in cooking club, relaxing with spa manicures, participating in kickball and exercise classes, everyone continues to stay engaged with a variety of activities on campus. We hope everyone has fun weekend plans ahead!

Communal Dining Updates
According to new Department of Health (DOH) guidelines, we will be changing our dining room table set up to allow vaccinated residents to sit with table mates without social distancing. We will continue to have all residents enter and exit the dining room wearing a mask, and masks can be removed once seated. Unvaccinated residents will have assigned seating separate from fully vaccinated residents, socially distanced from other residents in the dining room. We will begin adding and removing tables in the next two weeks.
Communal Activities Update
New DOH guidelines allow us to hold group activities with more than 10 people in a room. Our vaccinated residents will continue to be encouraged to wear a mask during group activities. Any unvaccinated residents will be required to wear a mask at group activities and will be required to socially distance themselves from other residents.
We have live entertainers, exercise instructors, pet visits, and art instructors planned each week. We are excited to be able to bring in live performers and very happy to have the group size lifted.
All residents will continue to be monitored with temperature checks and screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 daily. If a resident is not feeling well, they will not be able to attend dining or group activities until they are feeling better.
