  • Regarding the Reopening of Fowler
    • Phase 1 is just that – it is a phase toward the full reopening of Fowler
    • We are not throwing open the doors to Fowler any time soon
    • The data does not support doing that
    • We have tentative dates for each of these phases; but that’s what they are – tentative
    • Each phase is based on our assessment of the data and the level of risk associated with that information
    • If we feel something is low risk and we have the data to support it, such as the postman and pest control returning, then we will implement it
    • If it doesn’t make sense and we don’t have the data to support it, we won’t
    • As we determine who comes back on campus to provide service, we are full vetting their protocols and how they work with ours
    • The data does not support family members and visitors returning to Fowler now
    • No family visits at Fowler at this time
    • Family visits are a part of Phase 6 which is tentatively estimated to begin in June
    • We do not have a timetable for moving through the phases and we would rather err on the side of caution than put anyone at risk
  • Regarding Phase 1
    • Residents in FCA and Jackson Living Center who have been socially isolating may now visit their neighbors
      • It is your responsibility to maintain a safe distance from anyone who is not compliant with our restrictions
      • When visiting with your neighbors, maintain social distancing, wear your masks and restrict the number of people in any one location to ten or less
    • FCA residents – you can now pick up food from Friends Helping Friends and Tommy Gee at Means check-in point
    • Means Activity and other common areas in Building C/D are closed indefinitely due to attachment to the licensed assisted living
  • If anyone is interested in a Facetime visit with Daisy the therapy dog, please contact your life enrichment team member to schedule
  • And of course, you can ask to schedule a Facetime visit with your family members as well
  • Have a great day on purpose
