As of April 2, 2020, St. George Village remains free of COVID-19 and the flu. Our goal is to maintain this status with the implementation of new measures, whenever possible, to help in this important cause.
Due to the continuing outbreak of COVID-19 and our ongoing review of information from the CDC, Regional C Coalition, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the Governor’s mandate, we are taking additional steps to minimize the risk for residents and staff of contracting and possibly spreading the virus.
Effective Thursday, April 2, 2020, at 7:00 a.m., all North and South Village residents will be prohibited from leaving St. George Village to go to any place off-campus. Medically necessary visits will be permitted on a case-by-case basis, with conditions; please contact the Wellness Nurse. Otherwise, anyone who chooses to leave campus will be subject to a 14-day quarantine upon their return.
With many businesses closed, off-site options are very limited. However, some services will deliver to our community, and our staff is here to help with any basic resources residents may need.
Currently, residents and staff may continue to access all common spaces with adherence to social distancing rules and gatherings limited to 10 or fewer people. We encourage residents to remain active by accessing our walking paths and courtyards. Also, the library is open, and residents may continue to use the gym (social distancing and equipment sanitization required). Housekeeping staff will monitor and clean these areas several times during the day.
We recognize that progressively tighter restrictions make life challenging, but we remain unwavering in our objective to safeguard the health of everyone who lives and works at St. George Village. We look forward to the time when COVID-19 is no longer a public health problem and all of us can return to a normal way of life.
