Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, National Lutheran Communities & Services and The Village at Augsburg have been committed to following the most advanced best practices in health and safety protocols to protect our residents, clients and team members. Currently, COVID-19 vaccines are required for all team members, with proof of vaccination required prior to employment. NLCS has a process for applicants who have been offered a position to request an exemption or deferral for medical or religious reasons.
Current Visitation Guidelines (updated January 20, 2022):
Montgomery County transmission rate: High (red)
Important: If you are sick or have been around others who are ill or if suspect you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 at any point in the last 14 days, please do not visit. We cannot stress the importance of following this first guideline!
Love Your Neighbor Pledge: As we establish plans to make our path forward with our phased re-opening of The Village at Augsburg, the risks increase for the possibility of the virus spreading to our community. Each of us has personal responsibility for keeping everyone safe, and we need to realize that our own behaviors can impact those with whom we work and serve. To show care and concern for each other, and to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR, team members and residents are invited to pledge and commit to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Residents and team members are encouraged to consider your personal impact on our community and our ability to move forward through the established phases. We hope everyone will post the pledge in a visible place in your home as a reminder that your neighbors are counting on you to do your part in keeping everyone safe.
