COVID-19 Updates & Information

for all Kintock Facilities

Last Updated: February 10, 2021

The health and well-being of our staff, residents and clients is the top priority of The Kintock Group.  

 

Kintock has worked to be as proactive as possible in this ever-changing environment.  We continue to closely monitor the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), state & federal directives and local health agencies for the latest developments related to the COVID-19 situation.  We have maintained open lines of communication with our federal, state and local contracting agencies and have implemented several measures in an effort to maintain a healthy environment for everyone in our facilities.  

 

Some of the precautionary measures that have been approved by our contracting agencies and initiated at all Kintock locations to manage the coronavirus outbreak include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Implementation of a strict screening protocol for all individuals (residents, staff, official visitors) entering and living in our facilities.

  • A significant increase in the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing throughout the facilities, including the use of electrostatic sprayers that disinfect and clean surfaces.

  • The addition of numerous hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the facilities.  

  • Limiting foot traffic, including the suspension of resident visits except for attorney visits in our residential programs.

  • In our CRC programs, the implementation of cohort-programming has limited the number of clients present in the facility at any time and ensured social distancing during classes and counseling sessions.  

  • Implementation of new housing, programming, meal and recreation protocols in our residential programs to ensure that residents are able to practice social distancing strategies.

  • Suspension of non-essential resident movement into the community.  

  • Distribution of masks to all residents, clients, and staff.

  • Kintock has worked with our contracting agencies to provide residents with precautionary COVID testing including a strict requirement that all new arrivals test negative for COVID.

 

Kintock continues to monitor this situation and is taking all necessary steps to minimize risks within our facilities.  We have worked to ensure an appropriate supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), hand soap, sanitizer and other items needed to protect both staff, clients and residents from coronavirus. 

 

Kintock continues to monitor the availability of the COVID vaccine for both staff and residents.  We will communicate additional changes as necessary.  

 

Thank you.
