Coronavirus Updates

Reconfirmed as of October 20, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. CST

We want to provide an update on COVID-19 within our Village on the Green community. We learned recently that one of our independent living residents tested positive for the virus. By way of recap, we have two active independent living resident cases of the virus and both are self-isolating at home.

 

As previously communicated, we have one active team member case of the virus, and this individual is self-isolating at home with the support of our Human Resources team.

 

We understand that you have concerns and may have questions about COVID-19 and the current situation in our community.  Please know we continue with our commitment to protect the health and safety of our residents and team members. Our team continues to be proactive in mitigating the risk of further exposure to the virus within our community.

Lifespace and Village on the Green continue to follow heightened infection control guidelines and we highly encourage residents to only leave the community for essential needs like groceries or critical medical appointments. Residents and team members are encouraged to practice social distancing and wear a mask or face covering when you interact with others in public settings. Proper hand hygiene including handwashing and the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer are essential to preventing the spread of the virus. As we have done throughout the last several weeks, we will provide regular updates about our efforts to maintain a safe and healthy community.

 

We appreciate your support and continued adherence to the protocols we have implemented to protect our residents and team members. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Village on the Green management team.

 

Thank you

Resident and Family Member FAQs for Village on the Green

We have put together the following FAQs to try to address your ongoing concerns:

We continue to follow the CDC, local and state protocols to prevent the spread of the virus among our residents and team members, including:

  • Restricting visitors to our Health Center except for end-of-life situations
  • Requiring all visitors and team members to undergo health screenings
  • Requiring appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for team members
  • Appropriate masks and face shields for our team members
  • Masking the residents in our health center when direct care is being provided
  • Suspending all group activities and communal dining

We are closely following CDC, the Florida Department of Health, and AHCA testing guidelines. In general, residents and team members who may have had prolonged contact with individuals who have tested positive for the virus or those with symptoms are being given testing priority.

See the CDC guidelines: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/testing.html

We are following all federal, state, and local mandates related to visitor restrictions, and we are taking these measures to protect our residents and team members.

Residential Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing:

  • No visitors are allowed.
  • Exceptions are made only for end-of-life visits.
  • Those approved for end-of-life visits will be required to wash hands, complete a screening questionnaire, receive a temperature check, and will be educated on infection control. Skilled nursing visitors must also wear a facemask and gloves at all times.
