4/29/20 Update from Glenn Barclay

Apr 29, 2020 | COVID-TBAK, Kingsport

Throughout the evolving challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis, I have been amazed at how much our teams, families and partners have shown their love and support for our residents and our efforts to maintain a safe and healthy community. We are pleased to report that we have had no positive test results for residents or staff at The Blake at Kingsport. 

We are actively reviewing our current visitation protocols to determine a safe plan for a phased re-opening of our doors to families and guests. We understand that the general public will begin to see a softening of restrictions and stay-at-home mandates as government officials begin the process of re-opening our economy. Because our residents are most vulnerable to experience more severe symptoms from the COVID-19 virus, continuing to keep our community healthy and safe remains our priority.

We understand the importance of close communication and are posting regular updates at  If you have questions related to how The Blake is protecting residents and team members from COVID-19, please contact our Executive Director Nicole Briggs at (423) 246-1100

Thank You,

Glenn Barclay
Chief Executive Officer
