COVID-19 Information

At Legacy Retirement Communities, ensuring the safety of our residents and associates during the COVID-19 pandemic is paramount and is part of our daily lives. Along with the many precautions we’ve been taking over the past year, the FDA, along with the CDC, recently approved the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. As part of a U.S. government program, Legacy residents and associates have all been provided the opportunity to receive the vaccine. We will continue following CDC and local government regulation and guidance in order to our keep our Legacy family healthy and safe.

Welcome Visitors

We are excited to announce that residents are now able to have visitors.  While this is a step toward less restrictions, we still do have guidelines we must follow.  Here are the details for in-apartment visits:

  • All visits must be reserved in advance with the concierge team
  • Visits are limited to 2 visitors at a time
  • Visits are limited to 1-hour appointments
  • Masks (covering mouth and nose) are required for the duration of the visit
  • All visitors will be required to use hand sanitizer when they enter the community, complete a COVID-19 screening, and have their temperature taken
  • There is no longer a restriction on the ages of visitors, if they can wear a mask for the duration of the visit, they are permitted to visit
  • Indoor visits, in a designated common area, and outdoor visits are still available
  • If the resident is fully vaccinated, social distancing is not required.  Vaccinated residents are able to hold hands and/or hug visitors.
  • Unvaccinated resident visitors must follow social distancing
  • Visitors are not permitted to congregate in common areas.  We request that all visitors follow social distancing guidelines with staff and other residents

While we are excited to expand visitor guidelines, we remain vigilant in keeping the residents of Legacy Village healthy.  Anyone who is unable to follow the guidelines for visits will not be permitted to visit.

Legacy Village continues to test all associates and medically necessary visitors weekly.  We also test residents who have left the community or had visitors in the previous 14 days.  As always, in-person visits and tours are dependent upon the COVID-19 status of our community, and follow local, state and CDC guidelines.

COVID-19 Vaccine Update

“Our residents, their families and our associates have been waiting for this. They are excited. We are excited. We believe this is a great initiative and we are so pleased to see that our government leaders made vaccinating front line workers and seniors top-priority.” says Cory Hafen, Vice President of Senior Operations for Legacy Retirement Communities.

Legacy Retirement Communities has partnered with Walgreens to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to our residents and associates. This partnership and program will provide end-to-end management of the vaccination process; including safe storage and handling of the vaccine; to make sure residents and associates are vaccinated safely and effectively.

While we are excited to have a new tool in our toolbox to fight the coronavirus, Legacy Retirement Communities will remain vigilant. Legacy residents and associates will continue to take precautions to stay healthy, including the use of personal protective equipment, enhanced sanitation protocols, physical distancing and COVID-19 testing.

“Keeping Legacy residents safe, secure and connected has been a full-time job during this pandemic. Our associates have risen to the challenge in challenging times. I am proud of the work they have done,” Hafen says. “The future looks bright.”
