Administration Alert Regarding COVID-19
September 2, 2021
Elevate Care Families,
As of August 18, 2021, President Biden announced that nursing home/long-term care facility employees must receive the COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of employment. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will be announcing the final rule in the next few weeks.
Consistent with this requirement, as well as our duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of recognized hazards, Elevate Care intends to adopt this MANDATORY COVID-19 VACCINATION POLICY to protect the health and well-being of its residents, employees, and their families. This policy is intended to comply with all applicable Federal, State, and Local laws. It is also based upon guidance from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state departments of health, and other public health and licensing authorities.
We are here to answer any and all questions. Please do not hesitate to reach out.

*Note: Elevate Care has taken an aggressive approach in testing all residents/staff in some locations. Please understand this may be the reason for a higher number of confirmed COVID-19 cases at some locations.
Please call the facility to discuss visitation status if you notate the facility is in “Outbreak" Status.
Thank you for taking this step! As the family member of someone in your care, I appreciate it!
Keep up the good work

Dear Elevate Care staff, I want to reiterate what Debra said on this board (March 16, 2020 at 5:38 am), as she seemed to say it better than I can… thank you for being there and taking care of our family members always, and most especially during this difficult period. We are grateful for what you have been doing.
