September 12, 2021 -

On Sunday, September 12, an employee tested positive for COVID-19.  Effective immediately, we must suspend all visitation inside the building until we find out the necessary steps that need to be taken. In the past week, the employee only worked on our 2nd floor neighborhood.  We have contacted the CDC for guidance and once we have further instructions, this site will be updated.  We tested all residents today that are on the 2nd floor and all are negative at this time.

Please look for updates in the coming days.
