Hendrick House has built a reputation on providing for the safety and security of students and clients for decades. Management and support staff have worked through many different challenges in the past and understand the importance of diligence, communication, and care in these types of situations. The COVID-19 virus is no different as we continue to mitigate its effects on those to whom we provide services as well as to our staff who play an important role in navigating our way through the current potential threat. The safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our highest priority.
Hendrick House continues to communicate with the University of Illinois, local city government, as well as staying abreast of both regional, national, and world news/resources for the latest information. In addition, routine meetings and education is an ongoing part of our daily business.
Current efforts include periodic email updates and creating communication vehicles such as this website to stay in touch and provide information to those in the Hendrick House community. Efforts include informing students of appropriate habits including frequent hand washing with soap, eating healthy, getting plenty of rest, minimizing stress as well as the appropriate channels available for other issues that might arise. More specifically, we have and are taking the following preventative measures:
- Hand sanitizer and sanitizing stations are available in all common areas of the buildings.
- Masks are required of everyone (vaccinated and unvaccinated) when away from their individual rooms, or office areas.
- In addition to the regular cleaning of our building by our Housekeeping and Maintenance services, we will continue to add an additional layer of sanitizing using our electrostatic sprayer to apply an EPA approved sanitizing solution in common areas and on frequently touched surfaces daily.
Maintaining clean living and dining conditions is a paramount goal. Of course, within this process, we will continue to foster a culture of respect, tolerance, and caring among all. Please continue to visit this website for up-to-date information.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this ever-evolving situation.
