Dear Century Park Family,
The next wave of COVID-19 is coming and in some parts of the United States it’s already here.
The culprit this time is BA.2, a subvariant of the highly infectious Omicron variant. No one knows for sure how much havoc this variant will cause however we do know clear ways on how we can protect ourselves.
Please pay attention to COVID-19 indicators in your county and community. An easy way to do this is to check the color-coded map from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Here. If your county is green, that means there are low rates of new cases and hospital admissions. If the positivity rates start to rise above 5% in your area, we are encouraging all vaccinated residents and associates to wear a high-quality mask. All unvaccinated associates are testing weekly and wearing fitted N-95 masks for their protection in all our communities.
We are also encouraging all employees, residents, and their families to order their home COVID-19 tests sooner than later. Each U.S household is eligible for two sets of four home Covid tests free from the government. You can get them at www.covid.gov or call 1-800-232-0233 to place your order.
On March 29th the CDC expanded eligibility for an additional booster dose for certain individuals who may be higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID. Boosters are safe and people over the age of 50 can now get an additional booster 4 months after their prior dose to increase their protection. This is especially important for those 65 and older and those 50 and older with underlying medical conditions.
All Century Park communities will be working with their local pharmacies to host additional booster clinics in the coming months. Our target date for all clinics to be held will be before June 30th. Please take advantage of this convenience to stay safe and protected.
Your Century Park family values you and we keep you at the forefront of all our decisions.
