Coronavirus - COVID-19
The health and safety of our residents and staff is of the utmost importance to us, and this site allows ut to shareregular updates with you.
COVID-19 continues to impact the Philadelphia region in significant ways. We are following all Federal, State, and Local guidlines regarding recommended safety precautions to reduce the spread of the virus among our residents and staff in Inglis House, for those living in our independent living communities, and for participants in our community-based services.
We continue to actively monitor our residents and staff for signs or symptoms of COVID-19 and are working closely with our local and state health departments.
COVID-19 - Updates:
All staff must now wear masks throughout Inglis House at all times.
Residents are now required to remain in their room (and wear a mask if they must leave for any reason).
We are creating accommodations for those employees providing direct service to stay on campus between shifts (if they choose) so as to reduce staff concerns about the spread of the virus.
- The proactive, preventative measure to restrict all residents and staff to their designated neighborhoods is reducing the flow of movement between neighborhoods, while also observing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocols. Residents may still go outdoors, but not out into the community.
- We have enough PPE for the next several weeks using conservation measures, but we are working to increase this supply daily. Our Purchasing Department and many others within the organization have initiated a major effort for PPE purchases and donations. We have already received a number of generous offers from our friends and government contacts in the community. Follow this link for more information on how to help with our search for PPE.
Inglis' Day Program - Connections, is CLOSED until further notice as is the Innovation Center.
Visitation to Inglis Housing Communities should also be limited.
Ways to Help Inglis with PPE:
For families/resident representatives of residents of Inglis House, we are building a listserv list to be able to send out updates via email or text rather than through regular mail. Please follow this link to include your contact information to recieve updated info as soon as we have it.
