COVID-19 Updates & Info

In our 135 years, Tabitha has seen its share of challenges. We know the only way through this historic and unprecedented time is to be as prepared as possible and for communities to join together. Tabitha is now requiring all employees to be COVID-19 vaccinated (see the press release regarding this directive).

Tabitha is fiercely focused on the safety and health of the Seniors we support and care about, their families and each and every one of us.

We continue to guard against Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have designed creative ways to keep Tabitha Residents/Clients engaged and comfortable while working with their families and friends to stay connected.

Tabitha took action early on. We enacted stringent precautions, well before they were officially mandated by governmental health agencies and industry experts. Protocols which remain in place include:

  • Resident vitals taken daily (or more often as needed/care plan requires)
  • Strong hand hygiene
  • Wearing of proper personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Face coverings provided for Residents, TEAMembers and guests
  • Routine COVID tests for employees
    • Test frequency is dependent on county positivity rate where Living Community is located as well as COVID prevalence in each Tabitha Living Community
  • Mandatory screening (including the recording of body temperature) of everyone entering a Tabitha building
  • Designated delivery drop sites at Tabitha Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (TNRC) South/Main Entrance 
  • Collaboration with national, state and local health departments and government organizations to stay abreast of best practices and updates
  • Encouraging all employees and general public to put these preventative measures in place and to get fully vaccinated
  • COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics for employees, Residents, Volunteers as well as a program to reach those that are homebound

Tabitha has an Incident Command System (ICS) as well as an interdisciplinary team, made up of leaders from across all functions of the organization. Our key sources of information are:

We cannot let our guard down. By acting responsibly, we can ultimately impact the outcome of this pandemic. If you are not vaccinated, please do so today.
