ILU Covid Protocol Update – 5/1/2020

Friday, May 1, 2020

Brandermill Woods has implemented the following changes for the health of residents and staff. All other guidelines from the April 15 memo remain the same.

  • What does quarantine mean? The resident will stay in their unit (porch is allowed) during the 14-day period. The resident can walk around the community with a mask and following social distancing but not the common areas. Housekeeping and maintenance will not be allowed in the unit. Meals will be delivered and the delivery charge is waived. Mail will be delivered. Arrange with Kristen to mail out something; essential trips to grocery stores, pharmacy or banks are allowed.
  • Due to the cancelation of Spring Cleaning, the Housekeeping Department will be offering to clean decks, porches and balconies. Please call Ricky Perry at 744-1173 ext. 286 to arrange scheduling.
  • A large banner has been placed at the front of the community stating NO VISITORS. This applies to residents in the Apartments AND Cottages. Only medically necessary health providers are allowed on campus and they must come to the Clubhouse main entrance for screening. If you see someone and you’re concerned they shouldn’t be on property or you see someone entering a door other than the Clubhouse main entrance, please call the Front Desk. The Clubhouse Front Door Main Entrance is locked. Residents may enter with a fob. A phone will be located outside the Clubhouse Front Door for anyone trying to visit the Clubhouse. There will be posted instructions for non-residents, medically necessary visitors to call the Receptionist (or Security after hours) to be screened prior to entering the building. Medically necessary providers will not be allowed to enter the building if they have a temperature of 99.6 or greater or if they fail the Risk Assessment Screening Questions. Updated questions are located under the COVID-19 icon on Resident Apps. Any medically necessary visitors are not permitted to visit any of the common or dining areas.
  • Fitness: Jess will be offering some fitness classes in the cul-de-sac on Foliage Court. See the 5/2 Bugle/BWTV for more details. Most land and aquatics fitness classes will be not be held. Some of Jess’s recorded Fitness classes are available under the COVID-19 icon on Resident Apps. One-on-one sessions will be discontinued. Fitness center and the Pool have been closed until at least 5/8.
