  • If family members need to bring essential supplies to a resident, our team will meet them outside and deliver the items to the resident’s apartment.  

Dining: 

  • The dining room remains closed and residents will continue to receive all meals via cart service to their apartments.

  • During this time, residents will need to remain in their apartments

Keeping in Touch:
