Morningside Ministries' COVID-19 Update: September 16, 2020

Dear Residents, Family Members, and Friends of Morningside Ministries,

We are happy to report that since last week’s COVID-19 update, we have no new cases to report at either of our communities. However, our isolation and safety procedures remain in place at all our facilities. We have begun weekly COVID-19 testing of our Skilled Nursing staff at both the Menger Springs and The Meadows communities to meet the federal and state mandated requirements for all nursing facilities.

As a reminder, the Meadows community in San Antonio is hosting its second round of outdoor visitations at the Kaulbach Assisted Living facilities on Thursday, September 17 from 9-11am. To schedule a visit with your loved one at The Meadows Assisted Living, please email MeadowsVisitations@mmliving.org. Staff at The Meadows have asked that you please not call to schedule your visit due to the number of anticipated requests, emailing will ensure we maintain organization with scheduling visits. As of right now, the recent positive cases at Menger Springs have eliminated the possibility of conducting visitations. Please rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to keep our communities COVID-free.

Visitation with Independent Living residents continues to be designated to outside visits only. Please keep in mind that visitations at all levels of living at both communities will only be available if our residents and staff remain COVID-19 free.

Please know that we remain committed to being open and transparent about COVID-19 at our communities, while also respecting the privacy of those involved, as we implement all necessary health and safety protocols. We will continue to provide you with weekly updates on our efforts to combat COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and continued support while we navigate through this challenging situation. Should you have any questions, please contact your respective Executive Director or Administrator.

 

Sincerely,

Patrick Crump

President & CEO
