Coronavirus (COVID-19) General Update 10/07/2020
The Coronavirus continues to take a toll on the world and make life more challenging for all. Atrium Centers Inc. is fully committed to maintaining all services critical to the welfare of our residents, their families and visitors. Our employees are working round the clock to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. We are receiving regular updates and advisories from public health agencies, and are in routine contact with them. Atrium Centers’ employees have been diligent in implementing and following all new guidelines despite the information and conditions changing by the minute.
I would like to thank all of our families and friends for your patience and diligence in assisting us in our new protocols and policies. I know that we all wish that this was over, but unfortunately it seems that many of our new protocols for preventing exposure to COVID-19 will be our new normal. I would like to once again recognize our fantastic employees. They have taken all of the changes in stride and have been working extensive hours in order to keep our patients and each other safe. They are extremely dedicated, hard-working, and compassionate. I am so very proud of how resilient and committed they have been to our communities during this challenging time. When you see them, please join me in sharing your appreciation for their hard work (from a distance of course).
You may have heard that many of the states we have communities in are easing their restrictions on visitors. While we have concerns about visitation, we certainly want our patients to stay in close touch with their families and friends. There will be state-specific requirements for visitation and they will be strictly enforced. Requirements will vary by state depending on what is currently going on in each community related to COVID-19. Visitation requirements could change by day. For detailed information on the most current visitation requirements, please contact the facility administrator directly. We ask for your continued patience and understanding, as well as compliance in following our guidelines. The Coronavirus has not gone away and the number of incidences will continue to rise as the country eases its overall restrictions and opens up communities. This certainly makes managing the spread of infection more challenging for everyone. We highly suggest that if you plan to visit your loved one that you refrain from going out in the community to keep your potential for exposure as minimal as possible. This is so important as we continue to protect your loved one in our community and our staff.
Please stay tuned for further information. We appreciate your patience while we work hard to maintain the well-being of our residents and employees. We also encourage you to continue to keep in touch with your loved one via phone, Skype, or Face Time. We sincerely hope that these restrictions will end soon and we will keep you updated as circumstances change.
Please make sure that your contact information has been updated. If you have questions or need additional information, you may contact the Administrator at the community. We are continuing to monitor this evolving situation and will keep you posted on any new developments.

You can also email us at email@example.com with your current email address to send you updates directly.
