Dear Resident & Applicable Parties,
As you are aware from my previous letters, we were directed on June 26th to complete universal baseline testing and create a facility specific re-opening plan. This 3-step plan will allow us to cautiously and structurally begin reopening our facility in a safe and organized way. The guidance for which we created the enclosed plan was based on instruction from The Department of Human Services and in line with recommendations from the Department of Health. This enclosed plan for your review will also be posted on our website at www.themeadowsdallas.com.
Please take the time to review the enclosed plan in its entirety and share with your family or friends that plan to visit in the future. As you can imagine, our goal is the health and safety of our residents and staff. We need your cooperation to ensure everyone remains safe.
As you already know, we are scheduled to perform our universal baseline testing on Tuesday August 4th & Wednesday August 5th. With those dates scheduled, we are tentatively planning to enter step 1 on Monday August 10, 2020. As described in the pages forthcoming, visitation will be allowed in step 2. Our tentative date for entering step 2 is set for August 25th. Please note that if any changes are advised by Department of Human Services; Department of Health or Governor’s Wolf’s phased re-opening plan this could affect our plans and visitation rules. We will continue to keep you up to date as we move through this process.
Please keep in mind all you can do to keep yourself and others safe during these most difficult of times. Should you have any questions, please reach out to us at anytime and check our website for any updates.
Best wishes & stay safe,
Melissa Margotta, PCHA
