Opening up The Glenview at Pelican Bay

Many state and county governments are releasing plans to reopen the economy to essential businesses.  While this is an encouraging sign, please know this process will be thoughtfully considered at The Glenview at Pelican Bay (The Glenview). We will implement a multi-phased approach when reopening our community.  As we serve vulnerable adults throughout our community, The Glenview’s reopening phases may differ from the state’s or county’s phased approach. We will base decisions for each phase on state and regional criteria, advice from public health officials, and the health status of our community.  We will evaluate how we shift our protocols after we know our community is no longer at risk, and with careful consideration of the guidance offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and local and state health departments

We are all looking forward to the day when we can resume our lives as a community and gather with our friends, yet the health and safety of residents and employees must remain our highest priority. From the beginning, we have taken on this challenge as a marathon rather than a sprint. There are no short cuts or easy answers to how we reduce our risk to COVID-19 and it’s as important as ever that we continue to remain focused on protecting ourselves and supporting each other.   We want to keep you informed regarding what services will re-open and our policies on visitors to the community.

As of June 22, 2020, The Glenview at Pelican Bay service updates and visitor policies are as follows;

  • The Glenview is not open to visitors – family or friends.
  • Several vendors are allowed at a time to provide repairs/renovations but only with a negative COVID test result taken within 7 days before entering the building.
  • All employees are required to wear face masks, social distance, use frequent hand-washing hygiene, as well as testing of temperature and O2 saturation and answering of a series of questions regarding travel and how they are feeling prior to each work shift.
  • All residents of The Glenview are required to wear facing masks in the common areas and social distance.
  • The Glenview has limit community activities such as exercise in groups of less than 10 people. The pool is open to residents only and a limited number of residents are allowed in the pool at a time.

In the upcoming weeks, and until further notice, The Glenview will continue to follow the heightened precautionary measures currently in place. These practices include following social distancing protocols, wearing masks, and visitation restrictions. We understand the risks posed to our community from COVID-19 and remain committed to our processes. As the situation evolves, and we make changes to our protocols, residents, employees and families will be notified first.  We will work to keep you informed via our website.

Thank you for your patience, your support, and for embodying the hopeful spirit that The Glenview is known for as we continue to navigate this process together. If you have specific questions on how The Glenview at Pelican Bay will re-open, please contact Krisandra Panting, kpanting@glenviewnaples.com or telephone (239) 431-2587 for local information.
