A community update regarding COVID-19

While we have no confirmed or suspected cases on campus, a surge in the number of COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania is expected over the next two weeks. Our community’s adherence to safety protocols and social (physical) distancing is critical at this time. 

We understand it will be difficult to be apart from family during the upcoming holidays. For the safety of our community, please refrain from any in-person social gatherings. One resident’s exposure to persons outside our community can expose us all. We all must work together to limit our community’s exposure.

Important Community Updates: 

  • A Survey from the Pennsylvania Council on Aging
    • The Council on Aging is conducting a statewide survey to assess what the immediate needs are of older adults due to COVID-19.
