La Posada campus update for June 2020.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, La Posada has continued to follow the recommended guidelines of the CDC and local public health agencies as well as the Executive Orders of the Governor. As we now approach the gradual reopening of different aspects of the campus, we are carefully considering these same recommendations in order to protect the well-being and safety of residents, our staff, and the general public.

As a precaution, the La Posada campus is still temporarily closed to visitors and the public. Presently, no non-essential visitors are allowed in any residential neighborhoods, or anywhere else on campus. On June 1, 2020, the Vensel Treasure Shoppe reopened to the public. Shopping at the Vensel Treasure Shoppe is by appointment only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you are interested, please call 648-4082 to schedule.

Posada Java and the Green Valley – Sahuarita Family History Library remain temporarily closed at the Shoppes of La Posada. At this time, Posada Java is not available for takeout or to-go orders. During this closure, we will be making some renovations that will enhance the safety and service to our customers.

Unfortunately, the 2020 Ice Cream and Music Friday Nights Summer Concert series has been cancelled out of concern for the safety of all.

We promise to update the public when the campus can reopen to visitors. and when Posada Java is ready to reopen for business.

All public events and classes remain temporarily cancelled at this time.

Posada Life Community Center, except for the Senior Lunch Program, is temporarily closed. The Senior Lunch Program meals continue to be distributed on a pick-up or to-go basis, not dine-in.

La Posada Outpatient Therapies remain temporarily closed but we are making plans to reopen in the not-too-distant future.

All delivery drivers are required to wear face masks when dropping off goods on the La Posada campus.

Thank you for your continued interest and support. We encourage you all to stay safe, practice social distancing, and wear a face mask to protect others.

La Posada Suspends Operations At Los Niños de Valle Preschool and Adult Day Service Programs.

Effective Monday, March 30, 2020, La Posada will suspend the preschool program at the Los Niños del Valle and the Adult Day program at Posada Life Community Services. Attendees of both programs have been notified, and will also be contacted when the programs can be resumed. Earlier, the Senior Lunch Program announced it will be distributing frozen meals to its regular attendees, rather than eating at the Community Center.

This is the latest of a series of precautionary moves at La Posada to limit the potential spread of the coronavirus, with a population recognized to be at greater risk. Currently, there have been no identified cases of COVID-19 among the residents and staff of La Posada and Posada Life Community Services.

Since the awareness of higher risk levels in early March, La Posada has taken aggressive precautionary measures, including the cancellation of public events and resident gatherings, the restriction of non-essential visitation in Assisted Living and Independent Living areas, the closure of resident dining venues, and has created a new program of ‘To Your Door’ meal delivery and grocery purchases. There are approximately 750 total residents and some 600 employees at La Posada.

Other public venues at La Posada, including Posada Java, the Green Valley – Sahuarita Family History Library, and the Vensel Treasure Shoppe, suspended operations earlier in the month.

All La Posada staff are being screened daily for COVID-19 symptoms at the start of any work shift. Special employee policies for pandemic sick leave or displaced worker’s assistance have been put in place. Limited daycare will continue to be available to assist some essential La Posada employees.

La Posada will keep everyone updated on when Posada Life’s Los Niños del Valle preschool and Adult Day Services reopens. Please watch this website and La Posada social media venues for further campus-wide updates.
