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.
