One Year Later: Getting Back to Business

One Year Later Getting Back to Business

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued an update that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or rules, and regulations. This includes local business and workplace guidance. Of course, the recommendation comes with a lot of small print because we don’t know a lot about COVID-19 as a virus or the vaccination.

This pandemic has changed our lives forever. The speed at which life in our senior living communities changed in early 2020 was amazing — doors closed, masks on, visitors restricted, rationed toilet paper, on and on. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes.

More than a year later, we are ready to restore services in our senior communities. There are parts of our business that have changed forever. Believe it or not, some parts are better now than they were before the pandemic. We are anxious to get back to the business we know and love without the worry.

Whatever lucky charm you use, please make a wish that the best is yet to come.
