Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Dear Residents and Families of Friends Village at Woodstown,
With so much information available through various media outlets, I thought it important to communicate information to you regarding our protocols and to address any possible concerns you may have. The safety and security of our residents and staff are always our number one concern.
Every year Friends Village increases our infectious disease protocols in the winter months to guard against a spread of the flu. With these ongoing protocols in place, we are prepared to handle similar concerns, i.e. COVID-19.
Our custodial staff has been in “flu season” mode for many weeks, as they are everyday of the year. This includes the cleaning and disinfecting of high touch areas such as doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, handrails, etc.
We are also taking additional steps to keep residents and staff safe throughout our community by implementing the following:
– Suspension of all non-medical related visitors until further notice
– Staff screenings. Our entire staff will be screened for fever and other symptoms daily upon arrival for their work shift
As always, the health and safety of our residents and staff remain our highest priority. We will continue to follow guidance from state and federal agencies and communicate to you any information as it becomes necessary. For up-to-the-minute updates, please visit The Center for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov. Should you have any specific individual questions regarding your health or as it relates to COVID-19, please contact your Primary Care Physician.
Thank you for your continued support.
Craig L. Petry, SPHR
