We are excited to announce that Wauconda Care will begin restoring group activities at our facility beginning today. We have worked with our Activity Consultant to develop a program that will be engaging, yet ensure that our residents stay safe. Some highlights of the plan include:
As you know, there are currently many “hotspots” throughout the country that have shown a dramatic rise is cases of COVID-19. In order to keep our residents and employees safe, we have adopted the City of Chicago Emergency Travel Order and will be requiring any employees who may travel to any of these areas to quarantine for 14 days.
Dear Family Member: I am pleased to announce that on July 7, 2020, Wauconda Care will be reinstituting limited group dining as allowed by the IDPH.
I am pleased to inform you that Wauconda Care has formulated a plan which will allow for outdoor visitation that meets the requirements of the Illinois Department of Public Health. This Plan is attached for your reference.
