Please Note: The experience shared below is specific to Kendal at Lexington. Please check each Affiliate’s website for information specific to each Kendal location for current COVID-19 restrictions and safety measures.
Each state, each city, each county, and each Kendal community are all at different levels of openness and are moving between phases, stages, and color levels daily – sometimes multiple times per day. We are all looking for ways to stay physically distanced and safe, while also being able to socially interact to stay well mentally. Kendal at Lexington has started a “Conversation Pods” initiative where they are looking for little niches within their building where furniture can be re-positioned to create little places to chat safely.
Kendal at Lexington sits on 85 acres of rolling farmland with panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, so they are also looking outside on their lovely campus to identify sites for a bench, or a cluster of chairs where people might want to go and sit and chat. Individuals are appropriately distanced and wear a face mask.
How might you create safe physically distanced “conversation pods” within your own community?
The CDC has many recommendations and guidelines for a variety of situations. Tips for social distancing and for personal and social activities, as well as many other scenarios are available online. But again, if you reside in a Kendal community, please check each Affiliate’s website for information specific to each Kendal location for current COVID-19 restrictions and safety measures.
