Dear Residents, Families and Staff:

As our nation, state, and local community cope with the coronavirus pandemic, we wish to provide you with this important update regarding The Blake at Kingsport.  We have one staff member who has tested positive.

The staff member is at home on quarantine and is doing well. They will return to work based on the CDC guidelines.

Our first vaccine clinic was successful and the second is scheduled for February, 17. We will be testing all residents and staff members for COVID-19 this week.

With the continually high case and positivity rates in the area, we strongly urge all residents to remain in their apartments unless there is a need to leave. If residents leave their apartments, we require a face coverings, social distancing and proper hand hygiene per Tennessee Department of Health and CDC guidelines. We will continue room service delivery.

We will continue to share information and send updates when as needed. Please contact me at (423) 246-1100 if you have any questions or concerns.
