COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 vaccine update

Our goal at Care Resources is to always provide a safe and healthy environment. We follow CDC and state guidelines for COVID-19 and are proud to report that we still haven’t had any outbreaks in the Day Center! Over 90% of our participants are vaccinated and over 80% of those eligible have received the bivalent booster which protects against the most common strain of COVID-19. We continue to watch transmission rates, cases among participants and staff, and updates to guidelines.

We also encourage our participants and staff to get a flu shot every fall. In October 2022, we vaccinated over 200 participants in the center and in their homes! We met our goal of having more than 90% of participants and staff protected against the flu. We will continue to watch closely for cases of influenza and are prepared to assess, test, and treat.

Participants who can’t make it to Care Resources for vaccines or boosters may get them at any pharmacy that offers them. We keep track of all vaccines whether they are administered at our facility or elsewhere. Our goal is to prevent spread and keep everyone out of the hospital!

COVID-19 safety guidelines

During 2022 and beyond, all safety protocols in place for Care Resources continued:

  • Masks required within the building and buses.
  • Social distancing relaxed in the Day Center, but some areas still socially distanced for those who prefer it.
  • Participant attendance updated and increased!
  • Frequent hand washing required.
  • Cleaning of high-touch surfaces daily; industrial cleaning weekly.

We continue to take lessons learned through the pandemic to improve our services and find a new routine that best fits the needs of every participant. We are thankful for each and every one of you who continues to navigate this with us!
