Coronavirus/COVID-19

CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19

The Allendale Community for Senior Living is closely monitoring and safeguarding against the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We are rigorously following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), State and local health authorities to keep the residents, families and staff in our community safe and healthy.

Staff and essential personnel are temperature tested, and screened for respiratory symptoms and recent travel activity. Unsafe screening results bar entry to the facility and require 14 day self quarantine.

In compliance with protocols issued by Federal and State authorities, we are continuing to limit facility access to one door, security door #23, located in the back of our facility. This security area is where everyone, including, all essential staff, and residents’ families, must go for COVID-19 screening or to drop off resident items: food, beverages, packages, or to pick up and drop off resident laundry.

All staff and residents are regularly tested at our facility for the COVID-19.

Effective June 21st, 2020, in adherence to state mandate, a safety conscious program was instituted for residents and families outlining a policy of half hour, socially distanced, outdoor visits. Please review our facility’s policy, protocols and procedures for outdoor and, as and when permitted, indoor visits.

Please also stay informed on New Jersey State travel bans or advisories, by knowing the updated list of states whose rate of infection requires a 14 day quarantine after travel from a listed state.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation. Your compliance helps keep our community COVID free.

We strongly encourage everyone, everywhere, to do their part by being informed and vigilant in their application of common sense recommendations advised by the New Jersey Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

CORONAVIRUS

Prevention:

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
  • CDC recommends individuals wear a facemask to protect themselves and help protect the spread of COVID-19 to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website

For information specific to healthcare, see CDC’s Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. Please note the CDC does have specific guidance for travelers.

Thank you for helping us protect you and our community.
