Memo-COVID-19 Update-November 15, 2020

FROM: John Burns, President and CEO


DATE: November 15, 2020

Unfortunately, this weekend, Westminster Canterbury Richmond learned that one Independent Living resident and three additional residents in Mary Morton Parsons Health Center have tested positive for COVID-19. Those who may have been exposed will be contacted directly and tested.

As we shared last week, due to these additional cases, we are closing additional programs and services in order to protect our community and end our current outbreak as quickly as possible. While we are contact tracing our current cases and working to control the spread of infection, social gatherings are strongly discouraged.

• Effectively immediately, family visitation in all areas of living is suspended.

• In-person dining in the Promenade is also suspended.

We will provide more updates at the Live Update on Tuesday, November 17.

Some Resident Services are suspended until further notice. Small group, Pastoral Care, Recreation and Wellness activities are suspended. Salon Services in all areas of living, the Arts Studio and Woodworking Shop are closed. Additional changes will be shared on Monday.

Other services will be available. The Galleria will offer delivery service. Virtual performances from the Sara Belle November Theater will continue. CVS Pharmacy will be open to one customer at a time. While in-person dining in the Promenade is suspended, delivery meals will be available. Instructions for placing orders for meals were placed in resident boxes.

Deliveries from Family and Friends

Family and friends who need to deliver items for residents may come to the Tower Entrance. Courtesy Services will be available to accept the delivery and take it to the resident. This service is available Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

We will share more information at our Live Update on Tuesday, November 17.
