COVID-19 Update

By now you are aware that the Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19, is becoming more widespread both globally and locally. I am writing to inform you that while our SandRuby Community Program has been shut down over the past few weeks, we have been vigorously working to create policies and procedures which will allow us to reopen our program while mitigating the spread of the virus and protecting our members, staff and visitors on campus (when allowed). Your understanding and cooperation is vital to maintaining the health and wellbeing of our community. If you are experiencing symptoms of acute respiratory illness (cough, sneezing, runny nose, fever etc.), have traveled outside the U.S. in the last month, or had close contact with a person who had a confirmed case of Covid-19, we ask that you refrain from visiting the program, and/or sending your member into the day program.

On our campus we will screen members, when entering the facility which will include a respiratory screening and temperature taken. Members will be sent home immediately if brought into program displaying any signs of illness. Our goal is to have the program ready to go with a “soft reopening” on May 4th.This means a limited number of members and limited number of staff to ensure safe distancing and space to conduct the day. Please contact us to make the necessary arrangements.

As always, the safety and well-being of your loved ones is our utmost priority and all policies and plans are designed to ensure their continued safety.

For caregivers, there is nothing better than peace of mind.

SandRuby families feel secure knowing their loved ones are receiving skilled, progressive and nurturing care:

A sense of place
