Based on today’s updates from the Centers for Disease Control, JKVs social distancing policy has been updated and can be found on the resident portal. All large resident events have been cancelled and we are requesting that you stay away from gatherings of 10 or more people.
Please continue to be diligent in practicing hand hygiene by washing your hands frequently with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. We continue to emphasize to staff members the importance washing their hands often; and we are checking to ensure that staff regularly wash their hands. In addition, high traffic areas will be disinfected regularly.
Over the next couple of weeks as we continue to monitor COVID-19 throughout the state and our local area, we are requesting that residents consider reducing or eliminating visitors from outside the village in order to reduce our community’s exposure to the virus.
As a further precautionary measure, please also consider reducing off-campus visits, with the exception of necessary trips to your physician or to the grocery store. When it is necessary to visit areas outside the village, please wash your hands frequently and maintain appropriate social distancing with others as well as with large crowds of people.
