Due to concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) and out of an abundance of caution, Luthercare is canceling or postponing all public, on-campus group events, activities and meetings through April 30. While our campuses do not have any suspected or diagnosed cases of COVID-19, we are committed to being proactive, especially because the older adults we serve are at higher risk for complications. If you have planned an event, activity or meeting at one of our campuses or early learning centers, please reach out to them directly to reschedule. These cancellations, in addition to our expanded visitation guidelines announced yesterday, are to protect our residents and team members. We will continue to monitor and evaluate this policy as needed. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
