MONDAY, JUNE 29, 2020 —
In order to reduce the risk of exposure, to the Coronavirus, we announced the closure of our campus and community homes to visitors on March 16, 2020.
With 795 new COVID-19 cases reported Saturday, June 27th, along with 58 COVID-related EMS transports, two more deaths and 730 patients now in area hospitals, the city of San Antonio and Bexar County took the rare action of sending a Wireless Emergency Alert to all phones in Bexar county, warning all residents to stay home unless you are an essential worker, wear face coverings, practice social distancing and avoid gathering with people outside of your household. The Governor’s Report to Open Texas hi-lights the rapid increase of COVID-19 in long-term care facilities and urges a strong and consistent response in preventing the infection in those facilities.
With that said, we have decided, for the safety of everyone, to continue the closure of our campus and community homes through August 2, 2020. This includes the day programs (free.to.be. and Unicorn Centers).
We hope that we can reopen our adult day programs, and reopen the campus and community homes to visitors, sometime in August. However, so much will depend on where Texas and the nation are regarding the containment of the virus.
