COVID-19 Updates

Update – March 23, 2020

 

For our Independent Living Residents and their Families:

 

In response to Gov. Evers and ongoing efforts to keep residents, staff and our community as safe as possible, we ask that you no longer invite guests and family to Evergreen at this time.  We also ask that residents stay on campus and limit exposure to the greater community as much as possible.

 

Evergreen’s preference is that those needing to drop off items do so at Resident & Guest Services during regular business hours (Mon.-Fri. 8:00 am – 4:30 pm or Sat. & Sun 9:00 am – 4:00 pm).  Staff will deliver items to residents.

 

If you must have a visitor, please abide by the following:

– Please limit visiting times to between 9:00 am – 4:30pm.

– Assign ONE family or designee to visit Evergreen per day.

– Guests must self-screen prior to entering Evergreen

           – Temperature should be lower than 99 degrees

           – No symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath or sore throat are present.

– Guests MUST sign-in using the provided log book.

– Limit interactions and practice social distancing, e.g. no hugs, handshakes.

– Limit touching of surfaces when coming to the campus and practice good hand hygiene.

 

Dining Update:

– Dining in The GardenSide & Pub 67 has been restricted to residents only. No outside guests, including family, are permitted until further notice.

– Takeout or meal pick-up is available for all residents. We are also offering meal delivery to resident accommodations for no charge until further notice.

            –  Call (920) 303-8406 to place your order.
