October 14th, 2020

Greetings residents, families, and friends of Evergreen Place Champaign,

It is an ever-changing healthcare climate as the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues in our cities, across the country, and the world. Thank you for your patience, as it is our priority to directly care for your loved ones at Evergreen Place Champaign. We do understand the importance of timely communication and intend to give updates regularly regarding COVID-19 and the status of our community.


We can share with you that our community has an outbreak of COVID-19. Privacy laws prevent us from sharing details with you, for example, names of residents, areas of the building, apartment numbers, etc. Thank you for your understanding as we preserve our residents’ and team members’ privacy and dignity.


We can also share that we are in constant communication with the Champaign County Health Department, following their guidance and ensuring the proper protocols are being followed to minimize the additional risk of exposure to our residents and our team members. We are regularly screening temperatures of our residents throughout the day and employees at the start and middle of every shift. Infection control and prevention procedures are common and routine in our community, however, heightened during this time. As an added measure to control the spread of the virus, residents have been ‘sheltering in place.’ For our residents, this means staying in their apartment. We ask for your assistance in emphasizing the importance of this measure with your loved one through your calls, virtual visits, and emails. They truly love hearing from you! 


Please continue to use this page for updates; however, I am happy to take calls your calls and questions if urgent, as I will be focusing on continuing to lead our team and residents through this uncharted territory. I realize how startling this communication may be; rest assured, we have never worked harder to protect your loved ones. We love them too.


Sincerely,

Jamie Beck, LPN
