Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Legacy at North Augusta–A National Lutheran Community adopted the strictest of infection control methods to protect their residents and team members. The effort shown by residents, team members and their families has kept residents totally free from COVID-19 – a significant feat during this time.
For their efforts, The Legacy was recognized by the Virginia Department of Health. Stemming from an infection control survey by the Department of Health, show The Legacy excelled in three areas — clear signage and screening process for arriving visitors, frequent screenings of residents and staff members, and a rigorous mitigation program.
In addition to the infection control survey, The Legacy was featured in the News Virginian. Read here.
While the recognition is wonderful, Executive Director Cherie Powers said “This has all been about keeping our residents and team members safe and healthy and we are very grateful everyone has stayed healthy during this pandemic.”
