After more than a year of challenges, changes, and disruptions to our daily lives, were thrilled to welcome brighter days at our communities! Sunrise has recently rolled our new operating guidelines, compliant with the latest guidelines, that will allow for more activities and in-person visits, which we know our residents and families have longed for.
Specific community offerings will vary based on state and local regulations, community vaccination rates, and the vaccination status of each resident and visitor. Examples of what residents may experience under this new operating model include:
- Indoor and outdoor group activities
- Open common areas and amenity spaces
- Open community dining rooms
- Community outings and day trips
- Trips out of the community without having to quarantine upon return
- Guests who are welcome to visit with residents in their suites and community common areas
As the COVID-19 pandemic is not fully behind us, communities will still keep a number of infection control protocols in place, including wearing masks in community common areas (regardless of vaccination status), symptom and temperature screenings of all residents, team members and visitors and frequent hand hygiene and cleaning of high-touch surfaces.
This new normal is only possible because of the high vaccination rates among our residents and team members. According to the CDC, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective and can enable you to resume many activities that you did prior to the pandemic.If you or your loved ones are still hesitant about receiving the vaccine, we encourage you to review the below infographic.
