Dear family and friends of Castle Senior Living,
We cannot thank you enough for your perseverance and compassion during the Coronavirus pandemic. The past year has presented numerous challenges for all of us. We are happy to report no new cases of COVID-19 among residents or staff at this time.
The vaccination process continues to be rolled out and the clinics have gone smoothly. We have had four vaccine clinics to date. This week we will conduct three more clinics and three the following week. We will also begin administering the second dose of the vaccine to eligible residents and staff on February 12.
Even with the good progress, to protect the safety and well-being of our residents and staff, the following are still in effect:
- Non-essential visitation is currently suspended at all locations. Visitation restrictions come directly from the local health department guidance. We will make exceptions for compassionate care at all of our communities. Video calls or virtual visits are still encouraged and available. If you’d like to schedule a virtual visit, please reach out to your community administrator. Castle Senior Living will revisit the visitation restrictions at each community once we complete the vaccination clinics and receive further guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Health.
- All of our residents who tested positive for COVID-19 at our Birchrock, Sienna, and Emerald locations have recovered and are doing well.
We continue to work with state and local health departments. We do have access to the rapid COVID-19 test which helps with testing quickly and controlling the spread of the virus.
COVID-19 cases continue to be at a high level in Wisconsin, so we ask everyone to be extra careful and remain vigilant. Please respect the safeguards that the CDC and the Department of Health have put in place to protect our residents from COVID-19.
The health and safety of our residents and staff remain our top priority. We will continue to be in communication with you as the situation evolves.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Be well and stay safe.
