Harwood Place COVID-19 UPDATE for 8.14.2020

Thank you for working together to keep our community healthy. With everyone’s diligence, we will continue to keep our Harwood Place community healthy. We remain in a global health pandemic with a virus for which there is no cure or vaccination. We must remain diligent.

The most effective precautions against COVID-19 are:

  • Diligent hand hygiene – hand washing and use of hand sanitizer
  • Physical distancing – six feet or more apart
  • Proper wearing of face coverings when in public

Governor Ever issued an executive order declaring a public health emergency and requiring face coverings statewide beginning August 1, 2020 and expiring September 28, 2020. People ages five and older are required to wear masks or face coverings in enclosed spaces. This includes indoor spaces as well as outdoor spaces in which people gather.

The Wauwatosa Common Council passed a local ordinance requiring the use of face coverings. Wauwatosa’s local ordinance has a similar age requirement and also requires masks in indoor places. The main difference between the state’s order and Wauwatosa’s ordinance is that Wauwatosa extended the timeline through January 31, 2021. However, the Common Council may set a different expiration date by a future amendment to this ordinance.

There are exceptions to wearing a mask, such as people who have a medical condition, or when eating and drinking.

How to Wear a Fabric Mask

  • Clean your hands before touching the mask
  • Adjust the mask to your face without leaving gaps on the sides
  • Cover your mouth, nose, and chin
  • Avoid touching the mask
  • Wash the mask in soap or detergent, preferably with hot water after use

Harwood Place continues to take all measured precautions in keeping our community safe and healthy. These are difficult times; we are here to serve through a culture of caring. Should you have any questions, please contact me at mara.henningsen@harwoodplace.org.

What our Residents Have to Say

We toured and visited nine retirement communities!  Harwood Place was the best fit for us.

Warren & Sharon B.Harwood Residents

I visited four other places that I found to be “ok” but did not excite me.  Harwood was the fifth and I felt at home. 

Betty S.Harwood Resident

Come in sooner rather than later while you can take advantage of the activities and make new friends.
