COVID-19 Update: Policies and Procedures at Village Park

Since last Wednesday’s letter to residents and families, several new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the Atlanta area. To protect the health and safety of our residents, we continue to follow our safety protocols to prevent the spread of illness. These policies and procedures expand upon the recommended guidelines provided by the CDC. We kindly ask that you support these actions to keep our community healthy.

Visitor Policies and Procedures

  • To limit exposure to illness, we have canceled all events with guests including family brunch until further notice
  • We ask that you please limit visits to the community during this time
  • All visitors entering the community are screened at the Front Desk. We are taking the temperatures of all staff and visitors upon arrival
  • Visitors are not allowed to enter the building if:

    • He/she has been sick or come in contact with someone who has been sick in the last 15 days

Resident Policies and Procedures

  • Scheduled outings are limited to doctor’s appointments and weekly grocery trips. All other outings are canceled until further notice.
  • In place of scheduled outings, we are hosting additional activities within our community
  • Residents experiencing fever or flu-like symptoms will be asked to stay in their apartments until they are fever-free for 24 hours
  • Residents returning from rehab or other clinical settings will be closely monitored for fever and flu-like symptoms
  • We encourage residents to frequently wipe down personal countertops, door handles, and other surfaces; order groceries, medications, and supplies online rather than purchasing in-store; and avoid unnecessary doctor’s visits or trips to clinical settings where you are more likely to come in contact with the virus

  • We are conducting educational sessions and trainings for residents and staff
  • We have on-call caregivers from outside agencies should there be staffing shortages due to illness
