The 2022 Summer edition of LIFE Magazine is hitting mail boxes…
In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we highly acknowledge ‘facts over myths’, but bottom line is that Marbridge serves a medically vulnerable population and it’s our top priority to keep them safe under all circumstances. We ask that you follow the below protocols when working with our residents and planning travel. Our residents, particularly those at The Villa, are more susceptible to illness. We also know that anybody can be a carrier of the COVID-19 virus even if you aren’t showing signs or symptoms, so we ask that most importantly you exercise common sense when coming on campus and work hard not to expose anybody. These protocols are effective immediately.
Marbridge follows the recommendations and protocols established through CMS and Austin Public Health. These procedures can change frequently. For the the most up to date information on safety, policies, and procedures for your loved ones or future admissions, contact your director.
Update from the Senior Management Team – 3/29/22
As of March 29, 2022, masks are optional on campus for residents, staff, volunteers, and visitors. This applies to all areas of campus except for The Villa. CMS requires all skilled nursing facilities to continue wearing their masks for a short period longer.
Masks are also optional for residents out on pass, participating in an off-campus activity, at their place of employment, and when visiting their peers at other communities. Visitors to campus (except for The Villa) also have the option to visit campus without a mask. Visitors at The Villa will be required to continue wearing masks when visiting their loved one.
As always, our protocols are dependent of community numbers. Should confirmed positives in the greater community rise, our protocols may change to reflect that.
Thank you for supporting what we have to do to keep residents and staff safe and healthy. We’re excited to see what 2022 holds for everyone and believe that this year will go down as one of the best.
