A message from Immanuel President and CEO, Eric Gurley—August 25, 2020

Update—June 2022

The CDC has recently updated its guidelines on COVID boosters and the definition of “fully vaccinated.” Vaccination has now evolved to include a second booster for those 50 years of age and older and for people 12 years of age and up who are moderate to severely immunocompromised. These boosters are widely available at local pharmacies and healthcare providers.  

It’s not unusual for guidance to adapt and evolve, particularly in new conditions and disease states like COVID-19. Immanuel Communities are currently open to visitors, and mask requirements are posted at the doors. Visitors are asked to screen upon arrival for signs and symptoms. If you develop any symptoms that could be consistent with a viral illness, including allergy-type symptoms, please stay home and do not visit until you have ruled out possible COVID infection. 

Update—March 2021

It’s a year into a global pandemic that changed nearly every aspect of how we serve seniors and we’re pleased to see a bright light at the end of the tunnel. This winter and spring, many of our communities and Pathways PACE® centers across Nebraska and Iowa have reopened once closed amenities like wellness services, life enrichment and our beloved dining rooms and onsite restaurants. 

While services continue to open, they do so safely as we remain adamantly committed to safe infection prevention practices throughout our 14 senior living and retirement living communities across Nebraska and Iowa. Our protocols, led by Dr. Fox, medical director, our onsite infection control and prevention specialists, and reviewed by state experts and governing health bodies, have been successfully keeping the COVID-19 virus from spreading and in some cases, have kept the virus out completely. 

We’re proud to be leading the way to protect the seniors we serve since first learning of this pandemic over a year ago. Beyond effective protocols, our seniors were among the first senior living residents to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through onsite clinics. And residents and staff at Immanuel Fontenelle received vaccines the day the 100 millionth vaccine was distributed, an historic event for the pandemic.

Throughout this fluid situation we continue to work alongside local and state health care professionals, CMS, the Nebraska and Iowa state and area health departments and other governing bodies to review and make an abundance of proactive precautionary adjustments. 

Thank you for your ongoing understanding as we continue to heighten precautionary measures and respond to changes from our governing bodies.For additional information, please the resources section below and visit CDC’s coronavirus disease information page.
