The Board of Directors of Springhouse Senior Living voted August 9, 2021 to mandate the Covid-19 vaccine as a condition of employment for all employees of Springhouse and contracted employees of Health Care Services Group. The mandate is a response to the new surge of coronavirus cases driven they the increased threat of the Delta variant and the growing national movement for vaccine mandates.
Vaccines are the most effective way to combat this deadly virus which has been kept at bay with vigorous mitigation practices over the past year and a half. Now is the time that all staff at Springhouse be vaccinated for the safety of all seniors served at our community. This mandate also follows the announcement made by the State of Massachusetts to mandate the vaccine for staff at nursing homes and long-term care facilities.
The Vaccine Mandate policy is effective immediately and employees have until October 1 to comply by getting fully vaccinated (either with 2 doses of Moderna/Pfizer or 1 dose of J&J). We believe this is the best way to protect our seniors from the devastating effects of Covid-19.
