A few weeks ago Bay Village allowed visitors to come onto campus with restrictions. Overall this program has been working out well for family and friends of our Independent Living residents to be able to visit one another. Health Care and Assisted Living is still under a government regulated quarantine. Until the governor and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid lift their restrictions these residents are restricted from having visitors unless there are end of life issues. The dining room reservation system for dinner meals is working out well according to Ron Simon, Director of Dining Service. Having the reservation system has enabled Bay Village to keep the number of diners at any one seating to 50 residents or below, with proper social distancing with the tables. Overall I have heard positive resident responses to this system. The Dash and Dine program is also doing very well with many residents utilizing this for their meals.
We are in the midst of Hurricane season. A few weeks ago, Jennifer Grimes, COO, had in a Covid-19 update some of the particulars of how Bay Village would handle a hurricane during this pandemic. Usually during this month I conduct the hurricane campus update. My hope is to be able to begin having the campus updates again once we have the new camera system working to provide a good picture to your TV sets on Channel 195.
July 4th will be a little different this year with so many communities canceling fireworks. I wish each and every one of you a safe and happy 4th.
