The Meadows of Napa Valley continues to take every precaution necessary to protect our residents and staff from coronavirus infection. This includes all federal, state, and local guidelines and restrictions, as well as any additional actions recommended by our infectious disease expert and healthcare team. Because of these measures, we are once again reporting zero confirmed cases at our community.

 We appreciate all that friends and family members have done to keep our residents safe, and we recognize the emotional toll separation like this can take. Thankfully, we have technology to fill the gap, and our residents have been using FaceTime and other programs to keep in touch with their loved ones. This past Friday we distributed a resource guide to keep residents connected, active, and engaged during this time from the comfort of their home. We are also providing meal service to residents’ homes, and making sure your loved ones’ nutritional needs are being met.

Many have been asking about bringing goods/packages to residents, and yes, we are happy to accept them. Please come to the front entrance, pick up the phone, let the front desk staff know you have a delivery, and we’ll take it from there.

For any other questions, comments, or concerns, please email prs@retirement.org, and include MNV in the subject line so we can route your email to the appropriate person. We are thankful for all that everyone continues to do to keep our residents and staff safe!

Yesterday we announced new restrictions on visitations to our Skilled Nursing Facility. Today, due to rapidly developing guidelines from federal, state, and local health authorities, we are extending those restrictions to all areas of our campus. To reiterate, all visitors and non-essential health care personnel are now restricted, including those to our independent living residences. Exceptions will be made for end-of-life and other compassionate care situations as needed. In those cases, visitors will be limited to a specific room only.

We continue to encourage family members, friends, and non-essential caregivers to communicate by other methods including phone, video chat, and social media.

Please continue to monitor this page for developments, and thank you for your patience and understanding as we adapt new guidelines to protect the health and well-being of our residents and staff.

Please direct your questions to prs@retirement.org.

We appreciate your help in keeping our community free from infectious diseases like COVID-19.

The Meadows of Napa Valley understands the seriousness of the COVID-19 outbreak and is taking every possible precaution to protect our residents and staff. From the outset, we have been following CDC, state, and local guidelines and as of today, March 11, 2020, we have no reported cases of a COVID-19 infection. We have also taken and will continue to take the following precautionary steps to mitigate the risk to our residents and staff:

  • Visitor restrictions: we are restricting non-essential visitors, including those that have not recorded a case of COVID-19 infection. Visitors are being carefully screened for respiratory and other associated symptoms, travel history to affected regions, and exposure to someone with COVID-19.
  • Staff education: we have updated, distributed, and trained staff on infection-control guidelines, and have campus-wide surveillance for COVID-19 symptoms and identifying high-risk individuals to monitor. We have also updated and disseminated appropriate mitigation techniques for staff in all departments.
  • Work restrictions: staff are being screened for symptoms and may not be permitted to work, as well as any staff member who has traveled to a high-risk country in the past 14 days or who has been exposed to COVID-19.

If you have a family member in our community, we are ready to answer any questions you may have. Please bookmark and continue to monitor this page for the latest information, as well as our Facebook page. Please direct your questions to prs@retirement.org.

We appreciate your help in keeping our community free from infectious diseases like COVID-19.
