An Update from us on COVID-19

February 24, 2021 | General

Dear Residents and Families,

I hope this message finds you healthy and warm. It has been a snowy winter here in Pennsylvania!

On Thursday, February 18th, CVS came (during a snowstorm) for our second vaccination clinic. Most of our residents received their second vaccination. All residents are doing well and are hopeful that this is a step in a positive direction.

Additionally, the Lehigh Valley has entered into the moderate level of community spread. This will allow us to move into Step 2 of reopening. In this step, our residents will be able to participate in activities in groups of 10 or less. We are also able to reopen to scheduled visitation beginning Monday, March 8th.

We will have limited visitation hours to ensure we have proper staffing to screen visitors. If you would like to make an appointment, you can call (484.860.3911) or email Kyle () to schedule your visitation. We are only able to schedule two visitations on campus at a time. To adhere to the 6 feet rule, only two people from one family can visit with a resident at a time. Sessions will be 45 minutes in length and will be between the hours of 9:00-11:00AM and 1:30-3:30PM Monday-Friday. On Saturdays, visitation will be available between the hours of 1:30PM-3:30PM. If these hours are not conducive to your schedule, please continue to utilize window visits on FaceTime/Zoom. Please call ahead for window visits.

It is recommended that visitation take place outside when weather permits. At this time, the weather does not allow for outside visitation. Visitations will take place in the parlor until spring weather arrives.

When arriving for a visit, please ring the doorbell. A staff member will meet visitors at the door to take your temperature, review social distancing and universal masking, provide hand sanitizer, and ask screening questions. Please remember that, as hard as it is, residents and visitors must adhere to social distancing. That means no touching (hugs, fist bumps, etc.) please!

Lastly, we are happy to welcome Vivienne Burgher to Legacy Place as a Resident Care Coordinator! Vivienne will join Kelly Rice in overseeing resident care. Vivienne recently graduated with a bachelors degree in nursing. Kelly and Vivienne will work as a team in both Personal Care and Memory Care. You can reach out to them with any care related questions.
