Coronavirus Update 02.26.21

To Aldersly residents and their families:

Thank you all for your efforts to keep yourself and others safe as we navigate reopening our community during COVID-19. With your help we entered Phase Two on February 1st. Today, I have more good news to share.

Following our continued review of state and regional criteria, advice from public health officials, and the health status of our community, we are able to move toward Phase Three of our reopening plan. Let me again state — this process will take time and be deliberate. Effective as of March 1st, 2021, our community will enter Phase Three of the reopening process. An updated Phase Three overview will be provided on Monday. During this Phase, social distancing and masks will still be required.

The following are a few of the changes being put into place:

• Dining venues will reopen with limited seating
• Indoor activities, exercise classes and programs will begin with appropriate distancing and face coverings
• Modified housekeeping will continue with some increased services
• Residents going off campus on Aldersly approved outings would not be required to self-quarantine
• Salon & Fitness Center will open with limited operations

We realize you are anxious to meet with your family and friends. Yet, due to the continued risk of exposure to COVID-19 and the risk of its variants, visitors will unfortunately continue to be restricted. Regardless of vaccination, we don’t know the long-term effects of the vaccine or how the vaccine variants may affect the efficacy of the current vaccine. Residents must remain cautious and family members are still not allowed to visit in resident apartments at this time. Visitors are only allowed in designated areas at this time. Only Essential Visitors who have applied and have been approved, are allowed to care for residents in their apartments at this time.

We will continue to practice caution as we move forward in the reopening process. In the event we experience an increase or resurgence of the coronavirus in our community or in the region, it may be necessary to revert to a previous phase or modify precautionary measures. We will keep you informed as we continue to monitor the situation.

Your continued support and diligence is appreciated.

Thank you,

Gilbert Carrasco
Executive Director
