The Village COVID-19 Update

There’s nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our residents, so we wanted to share important information with you about our continuous preparations for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Please keep in mind this is a rapidly evolving situation and our plans and protocols will change quickly.  As we move forward, we will continue to keep you informed by sending alert text message updates and will continue to update this page.  Be advised, you cannot respond to the text messages or call the number the text message came from.  If you need to speak to an individual, we have provided contacts below.  If you wish to have a family member added to the test message update list, please call the contact listed below.

Visitor Restrictions

In response to guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Indiana State Department of Health, The Village, is restricting visitors effective 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 17th, 2020, we are no longer allowing outside visitors at the community.  In addition, residents are asked not to leave the community unless the leave is for medically necessary appointments that cannot be rescheduled at a later date or completed by a Tele-Med appointment through the local hospital.  Please contact Lisa Glaser, Wellness Director, regarding making alternate arrangements to complete medical appointments.

Staying in Touch with Your Family

 We would be happy to set up times for you to speak to your family over the phone, via video phone call or Skype.  Please see the contact information listed below.

We are closely monitoring all government health officials, including the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and following their guidance.  The Village has extensive emergency response and Infection Control plans in place and we are ready to implement them should the need arise.

While there are no confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus in Vanderburgh County, it has been confirmed in Indiana.  As a precautionary measure our community has established additional protocols to help protect our residents.

  • The Village has taken extra steps to educate and train our staff on early identification and proper response to the virus.
  • We are asking any staff member who is showing symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath to remain home.
