COVID UPDATE – January 9, 2021

Over the weekend, we have had an increase of positive COVID cases for residents and staff at Friendship. As a result, we will be conducting PCR testing for all staff AND residents now at Friendship Towers on Monday, 01/09/2022 starting at 9:00am. We will be testing door to door and be following CDC guidelines for safe infection prevention protocol.

Additionally, we will be pausing all communal activities and church services until further notice in an effort to minimize the spread.

In the event a resident or staff exhibits symptoms consistent with COVID, we also have the option to conduct rapid antigen COVID tests as well.

Please let Bobby Greene or Vicki Philips know if you have any questions at all. In the meantime, we are encouraging all residents to wear masks in any common areas as well as use good social distancing. All staff are required to wear N95 masks at all times.
