Maintaining the health and safety of our residents and staff is our utmost priority. In addition to restricting all visitors, with the exception of essential healthcare personnel, we have also cancelled all group activities and communal dining. As per the latest guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), residents have been requested to remain in their apartments. Meal service and activity kits are provided to residents, and we continue daily monitoring for any signs or symptoms of respiratory illness. These steps are critical in helping to protect our residents and staff from COVID-19, and we appreciate family and friend’s willingness to observe these important rules for the foreseeable future. We are encouraging everyone to communicate via phone calls, FaceTime, Skype, video chat, text and email. We know this is a trying time for everyone so we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.

Staff continues to be screened daily upon reporting to work, and if they have any signs or symptoms of respiratory illness, they are being sent home.

We continue to follow infection control guidelines including frequent cleaning of all high touch areas with EPA registered disinfectants. Hand sanitizing products are available for residents and staff throughout the community as a supplement to regular and frequent handwashing.

Thank you for your cooperation to help maintain the health and safety of those residing and working at The Bristal communities.
