We want you to know that these team members have not had any symptoms of COVID-19 before testing or even in the seven or eight days since testing.

4/29/20 Update from Glenn Barclay

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 Pensacola.

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.
