Because our residents and their health is our number one priority, we have decided to have a new protocol for ALL incoming and current residents. Below is our protocol for all residents.
All new residents will be subjected to screening questions before they can physically enter any of our properties. The screening questions are below. You can find more information on our screening questions at the CDC’s page on COVID-19.
- Have you had any fever within the past 48 hours?
- Shortness of Breath?
- Experienced any trouble breathing?
- Any new confusion or inability to arouse?
- Persistent (unusual) chest pain or pressure?
Because of the seriousness of COVID-19, if anyone answers one or two of the previous questions, we will not be able to accept them UNTIL THEY GET CLEARED BY A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.
Most of our residents are subject to the rest of the U.S. This means most of our residents are in the shelter stage, where they cannot leave. Luckily, in the modern age, it is possible for majority of us to work from home. However, when residents leave the home for any purpose, they will have to do the following upon returning:
- Immediately wash hands
- Answer all COVID questionnaire (Seen above)
- Enter bedroom immediately until all COVID questions are passed.
If you are sick
If any of our residents are concerned they might have COVID-19, they will immediately be directed to the CDC. When signs or concerns are brought to our attention, we will immediately isolate the individual in his room until a conclusion has been reached. If, for some reason, it is inconclusive or potential, we have a house ready to go with beds dedicated to a worse case scenario.
Real Deal Backup Property
Thankfully, we are blessed to have a few properties. Because of this, we have a backup plan if any of our residents get COVID-19. We have a fully furnished and stocked house at our newest west Plano sober living home. And, because this home was just recently opened, we have the option to move healthy residents (And management) to some of our other properties. If this becomes a reality, we have a house full of food, bedding, internet, and everything one would need.
To be as safe as possible, please practice the following suggestions.
- Wash your hands!
- Avoid touching your eyes, ears or mouth.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who may be sick.
- Try to stay at least 6 feet from others (When possible).
- Do NOT CONGREGATE IN GROUPS OF PEOPLE.
