Update on COVID Precautions Due to Delta Variant

August 2021

Our CEO and President, Angela Green, met with residents on Friday, August 6th to explain the current situation regarding COVID-19 and the Delta variant.  We also want to share the information here so that you are aware of why we are doing all that we are to protect your loved one.

Key Points Regarding the Delta Variant of COVID-19:

  • The number of new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are at an all-time high and continue to increase daily.
  • Vaccination is imperative for all!  If we do not get vaccinated, the virus will continue to mutate and potentially render the vaccines ineffective.
  • Vaccinated people have a between a 60-95% (based on numerous studies) reduced risk of getting symptomatic COVID-19 (Delta variant) compared to unvaccinated people.
  • Vaccines are still proving to be highly effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and death from COVID-19.  99.5% of deaths from the Delta variant have been unvaccinated.
  • The viral load of the Delta variant is 1000X greater than the original COVID-19 virus which means that it is much easier to transmit to others.  Transmission can occur in 3-5 seconds as opposed to 15 minutes of exposure.
  • Studies have shown that the viral load of vaccinated people with COVID-19 is as high as the viral load of unvaccinated people with COVID-19 which means that vaccinated people CAN spread COVID-19 to others.
  • Breakthrough cases will continue to occur in vaccinated people, so it is imperative that we all wear our face masks and socially distance from each other.

Due to this new information about the Delta variant and its effect on vaccinated individuals, all of the residents have been asked to wear a face mask any time they are not alone in their room or any time they are outside of their room.  They have also been asked to wear their face mask at all times and to not dine indoors when they leave campus on outings.  The same has been requested of all of our employees.

The most important thing shared with the residents today is that in order to continue to have in person, outdoor visitation, everyone must comply with our infection control guidelines, which includes wearing a face mask over your nose at all times including outdoors. If a visitor removes their face mask during the visit, they will have to leave campus.  It only takes a few seconds for our residents to be exposed to this virus, and for their health and safety, we cannot have any exceptions to this rule.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in adhering to our policies and protecting our residents.  We appreciate and covet your continued prayers and support.
