What Fairing Way is doing to prevent COVID-19

Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever, shortness of breath, and/or sore throat.  Call your health care provider for these symptoms and stay in your apartment unless leaving campus for a doctor’s appointment. Vendors and visitors of Fairing Way access the buildings via the main club house entrance to prevent COVID-19 . Visitation to Dwyer Home is happening via appointment only and following strict Department of Public Health (DPH) guidelines.   All visitors and staff have a brief screening survey and a temperature taken.  Visitors to the campus under the age of 16, except for end of life situations, are prohibited until further notice.

We are keeping up with the most current guidance from both the CDC and DPH, but if you do have questions about our policies, please feel free to call us at 781-660-5000.

Responding to the spread of coronavirus, Fairing Way is prepared to prevent and contain cases of COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel virus.“The health and wellness of our residents and the caregiving teams who support them is our top priority,” said Nadine Shweiri, Independent Living Director. “Our team is concerned, we are informed, and we are providing education and resources.  We are committed to ensuring that residents, their families, our dedicated staff, and our community are aware of our efforts and the precautions required for COVID-19 prevention and containment.”

Fairing Way’s leadership is in regular communication with local and state public health officials, as well as with officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We continue to implemented our emergency preparedness plan, which includes:

  • Screening visitors and staff for any symptoms, including temperature
  • Requesting the use of hand sanitizers upon entering the community
  • Restricting activities that involve large crowds or sharing of food and drinks
  • Continuation and training on the use of proper hand-washing and use of preventative measures

In addition, we are advising all friends and family of our residents to refrain from visiting if they are feeling ill and have symptoms of infection. “These precautions are vital to helping us avoid and minimize the possible spread of coronavirus,” said Ms. Shweiri. She added: “We have had close to 50 families move into our community since June 3rd safely and without incident.  Our residents feel safe and secure knowing that we are following all of the current guidance.  They are able to socialize in a safe and distanced way and enjoy the a la carte amenities such as meals to avoid extra trips our to the store.”
