We are following the latest guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as well as other national and state agencies, which were put in place March 14 to protect those over 60 years old. As a result, only essential individuals are allowed into our communities. Essential individuals are defined as Touchmark staff, emergency personnel (police/fire), health care/other workers supporting residents, and selective family members with loved ones in end-of-life stages.

GET THE FACTS
One would think that after 26 weeks of practice, we all would know the who, what, where, when, and how of the novel coronavirus. Even if we have some of the answers, however, there is no denying that this time can still be stressful. Let’s all take the steps necessary to educate ourselves, care for ourselves, and help protect others in our home and community.
As cases of COVID-19 are still on the rise, it is imperative to stick to the facts and base your judgment on a neutral source such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Do you know who is at an increased risk for contracting a severe case? What you should do if you are traveling? Where to get tested if you need to? We are all in this together, and it is important that we stay on the same page.
The following article from the CDC stresses the importance of knowing the facts of the virus and doing our part to educate ourselves to help to stop the spread of this devastating virus, especially as we are all eager to get out and resume our daily lives. Learn more here and make a positive difference with your decisions.
Touchmark has created the below FAQ to make it easier for people to find the latest information about changes within our communities, as we work with national, state, and local health agencies and professionals to combat COVID-19.
