Ovation’s COVID-19 Response

Updated: December 14, 2020

Ovation is committed to your safety, health, and well-being. As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve, the health, safety, and well-being of Ovation’s team members, partners, and residents remains our highest priority.

Our Commitment to You

We are committed to full transparency and compliance with the latest COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations from the CDC, state, and local governing authorities as well as best practices that will keep residents and team members safe and in good health. We are fluid and adapting as regulations and recommendations evolve.

Cleaning

  • Electrostatic cleaning of each resident apartment prior to move in. The apartment will be sealed and secured until a new resident moves in.
  • Automatic sinks, soap dispensers, and towel dispensers in all public sink areas
  • Enhanced cleaning protocol throughout the property to decrease the risk of transmission of infection
  • Increased frequency of common area cleaning that includes random Vericlean testing

Training

  • Increased and ongoing education regarding infection control practices such as entry and visitation procedures, screening protocols, handwashing, cleaning protocols, proper usage of PPE, and the latest updates of best practices
  • Certified Infection Control Specialist on staff
  • Advisement with all leaders to be alert to signs of illness within their teams and reinforce the “if you are ill, stay at home” message

Testing

  • Residents are required to have a negative COVID test within 72 hours from moving in
  • Employee testing for SARS-CoV-2 will start upon employment and ongoing weekly screening implemented tailored to county risk
  • Screening at property entrances of all visitors, that includes temperature monitoring
  • Geofencing technology throughout our assisted living and memory care community to allow for contact tracing

Additional Precautions

  • Ovation will be dynamic and offer risk stratification programs based on the individual community prevalence. This will enable us to identify the right level of care and services for distinct subgroups of residents.
  • Development of outdoor visitation rooms if needed
