Dear Residents, Families, and Visitors:
The situation regarding COVID-19 is changing rapidly and Distinctive Living is closely monitoring it.
We’re also taking proactive steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in each of our communities. This web page is intended to share the latest information of our action steps and updates as they become available.
On August 23, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave full approval to the first novel coronavirus vaccine: the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. It has been fully approved for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. It will continue to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA) for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.
FDA COVID Update
Active FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock, M.D. said, “The public can be very confident that this first FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine meets the high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality the FDA requires of an approved product.”
She also said, “While millions of people have already safety received COVID-19 vaccines, we recognize that for some, the FDA approval of a vaccine may now instill additional confidence to get vaccinated.”
Our Distinctive Living COVID-19 Response continues to evolve and follow the lead of leading American medical entities. That’s why:
Thank you again to everyone who has made the decision to vaccinate and to help us all get one step closer to herd immunity. We appreciate what you’re doing.
Below are the measures that we have put in place to care for our residents in a safe and healthy environment.
Please feel free to contact our community at any time with questions or concerns. We want to do anything we can to help you feel more at ease during this time.
And as promised, we will provide notification, within 24 hours, to our residents, the healthcare power of attorney, and our team members should we have anyone in our community test positive for COVID-19.
We will provide this communication by both a phone call and an email. If you are the healthcare power of attorney, please make sure you notify any other family members that you want to make aware. We greatly appreciate your help with this.
We thank you for your cooperation and for allowing us to serve your family. We will continue to update our Distinctive Living COVID-19 Response.
