The health and happiness of our PALM community continues to be at the forefront of my mind each day. With the pandemic enduring at a greater intensity than hoped, we are all coping with chaos and new daily challenges. It’s clear that COVID-19 has impacted us all, but to varying degrees: some among us have lost loved ones; others have been sick; some have suffered from isolation; others have lost jobs; and everyone has had to modify plans and social interactions.
As we move into the middle of summer, we are all witnessing COVID-19 continue to spread throughout the country. I am sure this has raised concerns and questions for you and your loved ones, as it has for so many in our community. I’d like to take this moment to address some frequently asked questions, and hopefully provide you with knowledge that can help you feel informed and empowered.
The health and safety of our members and staff continues to be our top priority. To that end, we are gradually reopening services based upon our confidence in maintaining a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for all. Please read below for details.
There is much anticipation in our community about the easing of restrictions for the stay at home order, and we have begun making plans for PALM’s future. It is important to me that you feel well informed about how we plan to continue serving our members while keeping our community safe.
