Blue Skies of Texas adjusts safety precautions depending on the COVID-19 threat. In doing so, we have implemented all recommendations from the Centers for Decease Control (CDC), the Texas Department of Health and Human Services (THHS), and San Antonio Metro Health.
All employees and residents are wearing masks, washing their hands often and maintaining social distancing as recommended. In addition, each employee has their temperature taken and answers health risk questions each time they report to work. Large gatherings have been curtailed and many of our fitness classes and club activity has moved on-line. Our staff has introduced innovative ways to keep residents involved (like remote wine tasting) and outdoor activities are very popular (fitness classes, walking, biking, etc.).
Dining Services has modified the way they serve meals. Currently all meals can be picked up from the dining room or they can be delivered. In-house dining has been suspended and all meals are “to go.” At one point during the pandemic, we were delivering 1,000 meals a day with multiple options for hot and cold entrees, vegetarian selections and fruit and cheese options. In spite of COVID-19, Blue Skies residents are eating well and making the most of the situation. Our Chefs have been getting high praise for their efforts.
Anyone who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or who is experiencing symptoms is asked to self-quarantine. Our Wellness Department closely follows these individuals to monitor their health and ensure they have everything they need (food, medications, etc.).
Our goal is to ensure our residents are safe and secure during the pandemic. Residents continually applaud their efforts and are very appreciative.
