COVID Update with Masonicare President & CEO, JP Venoit, and Dr. Ronald Schwartz - 4/14/21
This week, we speak to Hope Ouelette, the Manager of Education and Infection Prevention at Masonicare Health Center. In December when we began vaccinations for our residents and employee team members, Hope was asked to be the first Masonicare employee to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. She reflects upon the significance of that moment, both personally and professionally. JP Venoit talks about Hope's great leadership and how her namesake symbolizes how we all feel about the future after weathering this pandemic together.
And Dr. Ronald Schwartz, Masonicare Senior Director for Continuum Health Services, provides information about the increase in cases of the "UK" COVID variant, particularly amongst younger people, and stresses how critical it is for us all to continue to make careful decisions when it comes to our social activities.
