We would first like to report that all staff members and residents are continuing to remain healthy. The staff that previously tested positive have completed any necessary time away from work followed by multiple negative test results prior to returning to work. We are very fortunate that the minimal number of cases we have experienced have had little to no symptoms.
Our administration and staff are continuing to monitor the situation on a daily basis and will keep everyone updated with any changes. While our top priority is safety of our residents and staff, our subsequent topic of discussion is to begin to allow for visitations with our residents and families.
Beginning October 5th, Mari de Villa will begin it’s outdoor visits again. These will be scheduled on a week by week basis. All of the guidelines will be posted on our MDVcontact.com website. Reservations will be REQUIRED and must be placed on MDVcontact.com. The reservation calendar will open on Friday October 2nd.
We would ask that in an effort to allow all residents a chance to meet with their families that you not book multiple visits at a time. We will do everything we can to make availability to accommodate visits.
As the State of Missouri and St. Louis County continue to modify and lift restrictions, we will adjust accordingly. You can find links to the existing State and County guidelines on our website as well. While both the State of Missouri and St. Louis County have varying regulations and guidance, St. Louis County’s regulations take precedence over Missouri’s State guidance.
Every situation is unique and we are here to work with each resident and family at Mari de Villa. Please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions. We appreciate everyone’s understanding throughout all of this. All of us at Mari de Villa understand this is a very difficult time for our families and we want to do everything we can to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of. We are continuing to provide the same level of care, and then some! Please reach out at anytime for updates, questions, concerns. As always, we can be reached 24 hours per day. Do not hesitate to reach out at any time.
