Wingate’s Response to Covid-19

Wingate’s number one priority has always been to maintain the health and safety of our residents and staff. Since December, Wingate has been steadily working to vaccinate their residents and employees at our Nursing Homes and Assisted Living communities. As of March 20, 2021  all Wingate communities have completed three on-site vaccination clinics with our partner, CVS Pharmacy, making available both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to all current residents and staff.

While we are excited to have been prioritized in the vaccine distribution, we continue to remain diligent in our safety, sanitation, and infection control practices. Our team is taking unprecedented efforts to maximize safety and create meaningful programs so that our residents continue to thrive. We continue to invest in state-of-the-art sanitization and safety protocols, including:

  • Real-time antigen screening testing and PCR testing
  • Daily use of Electrostatic misters
  • HEPA Filtration systems
  • UV sterilizer lamps built into HVAC system to sanitize supply air
  • Thermal scanning and facial recognition to monitor temperatures and assist with contact tracing
  • Sanitizing floor mats
  • Continuous education of residents and families on prevention and virus containment
  • A dedicated team of infection prevention nurses
