Recently, we have seen an influx of COVID cases among our Independent Living residents. To mitigate the risk of further exposure to the virus within our community, we have limited the movement between levels of living and postponed large group activities. We receive guidance from the Lifespace Risk Management and Health Services Clinical teams, the Ozaukee County Health Department, the State of Wisconsin Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
