With the benefit of on-site COVID vaccination clinics, by March 5th, over 95% of Southminster residents will have received both doses of the vaccine. Employees are also participating in the in-house clinics, and are being strongly encouraged to get vaccinated, whether it is through a Southminster Clinic, or through outside opportunities. Southminster also provides ongoing educational materials about the vaccines, and had a multi-day help desk in February to assist employees in getting their vaccines scheduled.
As spring approaches, and our vaccine completion rates are climbing, the Southminster Leadership Team has been meeting to develop a “Reopening Plan”. Although no plan can be fool proof under this pandemic, we will begin working towards a phased plan, establishing a set of expectations to ensure safety while utilizing guidance from local, state and national authorities.
Phased reopening will begin March 15th. Additional information regarding the extent of the reopening, with details about phasing related to visitors within our buildings, in-person dining and expanded activities and fitness offerings for our residents will be coming soon.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during these trying times, and we look forward with much excitement to a better tomorrow.
