First and foremost, the health and safety of our team members (employees and those in our care) is the most important thing as we navigate the Coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak. We are committed as a leadership team to make sure we are making decisions based on facts and using the resources we have available.
As you may have noticed, the COVID-19 situation is evolving rapidly, and more information is becoming available by the minute. Considering this, our plan/response will be reviewed at least daily and will be updated as needed. We will communicate changes to you when applicable.
We know what it takes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. CDC recommends people follow prevention strategies such as wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission, washing your hands frequently, and physically distancing from others. CDC also recommends that everyone protect themselves from COVID-19 by getting fully vaccinated. CDC encourages a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose for those who are eligible. Travelers to the U.S. should continue to follow CDC recommendations for traveling.
