Dear Residents and Families,
We are pleased to announce that effective April 1st, we will be able to accommodate small private parties in areas other than our main dining room, upon request, and coordinated with our Director of Culinary, Michael Mayorga, who can be reached at 760-516-2022 or via email email@example.com.
In addition, effective April 1st, we will welcome back our resolute volunteers who make life so much better for us all! Their protocols for coming inside the building will be the same as it is now for visitors.
Further, on Friday April 15th, we are thrilled to welcome a limited number of guests to our Passover Seders in each residence except the Goldberg Healthcare Center. The number of guests per resident will depend on the number of residents who will be celebrating Passover off campus April 15th. The building directors will begin contacting residents to discuss their plans. Once we have more information, we will have a better idea of the number of guests we can accommodate from the outside. Next week, the residents in Independent Living and Assisted Living will receive information that will explain in more detail how to make reservations. Families who have loved ones in our Katzin Residence will be contacted by the building director, Cynthia Cranmore.
Effective April 16th, we will be accepting reservations for meals in our Independent and Assisted Living dining rooms. You must make reservations in advance, and all guests must show proof of vaccination and receive a rapid test upon arrival. To make a reservation, please contact our Director of Culinary, Michael Mayorga at 760-516-2022 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to share too, that while we do not have an official date, we do intend to re-open Mel’s Coffee House for a limited number of hours each day. So, please stay tuned!
Finally, we strongly recommend our residents in Independent and Assisted Living continue to wear masks inside the buildings though they are no longer a requirement. For your own protection however, we hope you will continue this practice along with the staff and visitors, who still need to wear masks.
We are hopeful that positive COVID-19 cases will continue to decrease, yet also know there could be another surge at some point. If that occurs, we will take immediate steps to implement changes in our daily operations that will best protect our residents and staff and thank you in advance for your understanding.
Please reach out to your building director should you have any questions.
