In-person tours and visits are dependent upon the COVID-19 status of our community, and follow local, state and CDC guidelines
Since the first reports of the COVID-19 virus, Legacy has been monitoring the situation and adjusting our protocols as things rapidly change—sometimes even daily. Communicating closely with our residents and families is of utmost importance to us, while continuing to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our residents, associates, and families. The CDC recommends we follow the “high risk” guidelines for those who are over the age of 65 and have pre-existing conditions.
On behalf of everyone at Legacy Retirement Communities, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19—this includes not only those diagnosed with the virus, but also their friends and family. Many of you may also be feeling uncertain about the future and what resources may be available to assist you in this challenging time. While many restrictions continue during this pandemic, Legacy continues to be a ready resource and partner for those wanting or needing senior living services.
In accordance with local, state and CDC guidelines, but also proactively as a company, Legacy Retirement Communities continues to regularly test both residents and team members when a case of COVID-19 is suspected. If a positive case is identified, precautions such as self-isolation, increased testing, specialized sanitation and shift-changes are implemented to stop the spread of the virus. Due to the efforts of our diligent and caring leadership, caregivers, clinical, and maintenance team members, less than 1% of our total resident population across all of our 17 communities have tested positive for COVID-19.
