To Our Valued Families and Friends,
Members of the Peregrine Senior Living Management Team and our Communities understand that some of you may be concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) being reported in the media and how it may impact your loved ones living in our Communities. Ensuring our residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our greatest priority and, at this time, want you to know that we do not have any cases of coronavirus in any of our Communities and are taking steps to keep it that way.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended a variety of actions that we are implementing to help reduce the potential of the virus entering our buildings. However, we need your help in addressing these coronavirus concerns. Below are some examples of how you can help protect our residents, as well as reduce the spread in the general community.
At this time, we request that you do not visit the Community if you have any symptoms of respiratory illness. Those symptoms include: cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose, and/or shortness of breath. We also request that you do not visit the Community if you, or someone with whom you have been in contact, has traveled to known coronavirus outbreak areas such as China, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iran or any of the known hotspots for coronavirus in the US in the past 14 days.
We, and our Communities, are keeping up-to-date and following the recommendations of the CDC, in conjunction with the local and state Health Departments on prevention and management. It is important to note that the CDC is not recommending healthy people wear a mask as they are not effective in preventing infection with coronavirus.
If you would like additional information, visit the CDC’s coronavirus information page at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html, or go to your local or state health department websites.
