Greetings residents, families and friends,

It is an ever-changing healthcare climate as the spread of the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) continues in our cities, and across the country and world. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make caring for your loved ones, our priority at Evergreen Village. We do understand the importance of timely communication and education and intend to provide regular updates regarding COVID-19. 

It is with heavy hearts that we share our community has had an employee test positive for COVID-19.  Privacy laws prevent us from sharing details with you, for example, names of team members or departments they work in. Thank you for your understanding as we preserve our team members’ privacy and dignity.

We can also share that we are in constant communication with the McLean 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 team members. We regularly screen temperatures of residents throughout the day, as well as employees at the start and middle of shift. Infection control and prevention procedures are common and routine in our community. For residents, this means wearing a mask outside of their apartment, or when staff is in their apartment. We also continue to restrict visitors to scheduled, outside visits, and restrict residents from leaving the property for necessary medical visits only. We ask for your assistance in emphasizing the importance of these measures with your loved one through your calls, visits, and emails. They truly love hearing from you!

Unless urgent, please use this link, https://www.evergreenslc.com/evergreenvillageslf/update, 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,

Kris Loudenback

Director
