Dear Families and Friends of Ridgeview,
This message is to address the rising concern following the announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the COVID-19 viral disease to be a pandemic. Please be assured that Ridgeview is doing its part to minimize the threat to our community by implementing several practices that limit large gatherings, meetings, activities and non-essential events related to all aspects of our operation.
In addition, we have purchased additional supplies, and protective equipment to meet the potential increased needs for our community in the coming weeks. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with my request to limit your visits to our community for the time being. If you consider your visits essential to the care and wellbeing of our residents, I ask that you stay in their apartment, and avoid common areas including having meals in our dining rooms. If you have any additional questions or concerns.
Lastly, the CDC has provided strategies to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 in Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCF). For the most up-to-date information, visit www.cdc.gov/covid19.
Thank you for your help keeping our community healthy!
