How Legacy is fighting Covid.

 

At Legacy Retirement Communities, ensuring the safety of our residents and associates during the COVID pandemic is paramount and is part of our daily lives. Along with the many precautions we’ve been taking, the FDA, along with the CDC, have approved the Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine. As part of a U.S. government program, Legacy residents and associates have all been provided the opportunity to receive the vaccine. We will continue following CDC and local government regulation and guidance in order to our keep our Legacy family healthy and safe.

Covid Vaccine Information

“Our residents, their families and our associates have been waiting for this. They are excited. We are excited. We believe this is a great initiative and we are so pleased to see that our government leaders made vaccinating front-line workers and seniors top-priority.” says Cory Hafen, Vice President of Senior Operations for Legacy Retirement Communities.

Legacy Retirement Communities has partnered with Walgreens to administer the COVID vaccine to our residents and associates. This partnership and program will provide end-to-end management of the vaccination process; including safe storage and handling of the vaccine; to make sure residents and associates are vaccinated safely and effectively.

While we are excited to have a new tool in our toolbox to fight the coronavirus, Legacy Retirement Communities will remain vigilant. Legacy residents and associates will continue to take precautions to stay healthy, including the use of personal protective equipment, enhanced sanitation protocols, physical distancing and COVID testing.

“Keeping Legacy residents safe, secure and connected has been a full-time job during this pandemic. Our associates have risen to the challenge in challenging times. I am proud of the work they have done,” Hafen says. “The future looks bright.” (Updated 3/15/22)
