Dear OLA residents, families and staff,
With updated local/state guidance, effective July 9th, 2021, OLA will no longer require N95 masks for any individuals who work outside of our PUI units, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated staff members. Please remember that cloth masks may only be worn by residents and surgical masks must continue to be worn by staff members. At this time, we have no residents under investigation, therefore surgical masks are safe to wear throughout the facility. This will change if an unvaccinated resident is admitted. Please reach out with any questions. Thank you!
Our OLA administration, staff, doctors, nurses, CNAs and residents would like to extend our sincere thank you to our wonderful OLA community and friends. Your donations, kind thoughts, supportive gestures and ongoing patience have been appreciated. We are continuing to care for our residents and monitor the day-to-day updates from the IDPH and CDC as this situation continues.
Looking ahead, we want to remain as prepared as possible for the likelihood of reduced supplies. We are asking you to help us ensure our supplies for cleaning and personal protective equipment (PPE) are sustained. If you can spare supplies, we have provided a list below of needed items. (Please note: We will not accept any food donations.)
We have set up a donation sign located inside the first sliding door of our main entrance where items can be dropped off.
Prayers to all of you. God bless!
