We find ourselves, incredibly, in the middle of a fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I have recently been visiting our residences, meeting with our teams to discuss the ongoing challenges they face, but also to say “Thank you” for their remarkable perseverance through these tumultuous times. I am very proud of their resiliency and never cease to be impressed with team member dedication to ensure our residents are well, feel secure, happy, cared for, and supported. My visits have also provided the opportunity to connect with residents and I continue to be impressed with their positivity and resiliency. They have faced many challenges over the course of their lives and once again, they have risen to the occasion.
We are so pleased with the impressively high vaccination levels already achieved by our team members. In addition to our efforts to date to achieve these high levels of vaccination, we have implemented a mandatory vaccination policy to ensure that all team members will be fully vaccinated no later than October 31st. We remain committed to providing safe, healthy residences that promote social connection and mind-body wellbeing amongst our communities. The wellbeing and safety of our residents and team members remains our primary focus. We continue to closely monitor the health of our residents and team members.
To our team, our residents, and their loved ones, we “Thank you” once again for your resilience, positivity, and support. We look forward to the near future when we can enjoy our time together without the need for the additional protective measures.
