Resident Policies during COVID-19: Policies
The safety of our residents, employees and visitors is a top priority and it is important that we remain vigilant in protecting our residents and staff in order to maintain a healthy community.
The Pines at Davidson continues to pay extremely close attention to the coronavirus epidemic in our country and in our local community. We have assembled a task group to monitor this situation, remain educated on the latest information from health officials, and implement any policies necessary to ensure the health and safety of all of our residents, employees, family members and visitors.
Early on, we utilized a readiness plan for any potential COVID-19 outbreaks, in addition to our already established emergency response plans. Our emergency response plans are developed following guidelines recommended by local, state and national health officials. These plans include everything from infectious control protocols to ensuring our employees providing health care have adequate protective supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities.
In addition, we are reinforcing regular hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, screening our employees when they arrive to work (including temperature checks) and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and to the places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel to areas with widespread outbreaks.
Your vigilance, along with our planning and preparedness will guide us to maintain a safe, healthy and vibrant community in which we continue to live and work.
