Phase 1 Re-Opening Beginning June 1st

The safety and well-being of our Residents and Employees is our top priority.  With this in mind, Edgewood Summit will slowly and carefully resume some limited and still restricted services in incremental phases as our County, State and City begin to re-open.  All phases of the plan for re-opening require the number of cases with our area and within our campus to remain below specific thresholds.  The other requirements include:  sufficient staffing, supplies of personal protective equipment and cleaning products and the ability to obtain testing and maintain the safety of all.  The Residents of Edgewood Summit are considered a “high risk” population and therefore our strategies for re-opening will be slower than those for the general public and will not be the same as those similar, public businesses.  The safest strategy is to “Stay at Home” and avoid all unnecessary and nonessential visits, travel and associations.


Visitation guidelines do not change in Phase I.  Direct Care and End of Life visitation remains available with screening upon entry, only visiting the apartment, wearing a mask and practicing social distancing of 6 feet or more.

Small Group Activities

Small group activities (5 or less) can begin to be used with all continuing to wear a mask and practicing social distancing.  Group exercise is not included in Phase I.  Exercises classes will continue to be offered on the in-house television channel.


Appointment based transportation for essential trips may resume and do not have to be medical in nature.  Only one Resident with the Driver in the sedan unless two from the same household.  Must continue to wear masks and keep distance where possible.  Shuttle bus appointments with no more than 5 Residents on the bus and the Driver.  Must wear masks and practice social distancing.  The vehicles will be cleaned and sanitized between appointments.  Advance notice still required for appointment.

Beauty Salon

Appointment based salon services for hair may resume with no walk-ins permitted. Must wear masks and hand sanitize and keep social distancing.  Cash transactions not permitted at this time.  Fees can be charged to account with Edgewood Summit.  Wait for appointment outside of salon.

Fitness Center

Fitness Center may be used by appointment by 1 Resident at a time or Residents from same household.  Hours will be restricted to 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday.  The equipment must be cleaned and sanitized between appointments.  A daily schedule will be posted with times reserved.  Contact Lifestyles for an appointment.

Dining Services

Meal delivery services continue to be available to your apartment with no changes in Phase I.  The café remains available for take-out or delivery of prepared items and miscellaneous other items for purchase.  Direct charge to your account is preferred rather than a cash purchase.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and commitment to safety for everyone.
