Our first priority at St. George Village is to protect our residents’ health and safety. With the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have moved quickly to put additional measures in place on top of our existing infection control protocol to ensure that we are doing everything possible to prevent the spread of communicable disease within our community.
Currently, only essential personnel are allowed inside St. George Village and we have instituted a strict screening procedure for all those who enter. Our extremely thorough cleaning and sanitization regimen is performed on a regular schedule throughout the day. Additionally, we have implemented a social distancing plan for residents and employees per recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
During this challenging time, we want our residents, their families, employees, vendors and anyone who is part of St. George Village to know that we are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of all. The conditions under which we are working are fluid as we learn more about COVID-19 each day. Our goal is to inform you of the latest news being released to us from the CDC, Departments of Health and Emory Healthcare, along with any operational changes that impact our community.
Therefore, we will be updating this webpage and our Facebook page frequently, not just to share information, but also to actually show you, in words and photos, how St. George Village is handling the day-to-day management of COVID-19. We invite you to check these resources regularly.
