Dear Village at Belmar Community,
As communicated in our previous update letter, we would like to provide you with further details and updates regarding our community Covid-19 status. Based on the surveillance testing results from our most recent testing of staff, there were no positive results. Our second Covid-19 vaccine clinic was completed on 2/11. As a result of the resident and staff participation in completing their vaccinations, we plan to re-open our dining room(s) and offer small group activities, with proper social distancing.
Effective March 1st, the dining rooms for both Independent Living and Assisted Living will re-open. Further details around scheduled mealtimes and seating protocols will soon be sent out to all residents by the Culinary team. To maximize on staffing assignments and efficiencies during the re-opening of the dining rooms, we will no longer have staff available to provide “free” meal delivery. Effective April 1, 2021 the meal delivery fee will be re-instated for both Independent and Assisted Living.
Additionally, we will also begin offering small group activities in common spaces. These planned activities will require that all residents and staff continue to wear a mask, with proper social distancing. Our Life Enrichment team will send out a revised activity calendar to all residents.
Outdoor visitation will continue to be in place, with scheduled visits through the “Sign-Up Genius”. The links for the sign-up are as follows:
