COVID-19 Update

“What we have witnessed at The Moorings is the power of community and a thousand acts of kindness both large and small.”

We are pleased to report that as of February 5, 2021 the residents and staff have received their COVID-19 vaccine. This effort could not have taken place in such a timely and efficient manner if it were not for our partnership with Walgreens.

In addition, on June 28th, 2021, Presbyterian Homes mandated COVID vaccines for all employees working in its communities and corporate offices.

To protect the health of our residents, family members, visitors, and employees from COVID-19, all remaining unvaccinated employees will need to be vaccinated unless they identify a religious objection or a disability and request an accommodation. Approximately 80% of our employees are currently fully vaccinated.

“Our expectation is that this mandate will increase the percentage of employees vaccinated to more than 95%,” said Alpana Patel, Vice President of Clinical Services. Any employees that remain unvaccinated will be required to wear a mask and adhere to required guidelines, even after universal source control requirements have been lifted for health care workers.

The Moorings continues to follow guidance for senior living communities as directed by the CDC and IDPH. We are committed to notifying residents and employees as soon as possible about positive cases, whether or not they may have come in contact with a potential COVID-19 individual in our community. The safety of our residents and employees continues to be our utmost concern.
