We want to provide you with an update about what is going on in our Community related to COVID. We did our latest round of mass testing, and we are happy to announce that all staff and all residents tested negative for the virus. As a result, the health department has approved us, effective immediately, to begin window visitation with certain restrictions and outdoor group activities with social distancing and wearing masks.

We continue to see signs that the surge of the virus in our Community is ending. Our latest round of mass testing resulted in no new positive cases.
