MENTOR is committed to doing its part to help end the COVID-19 pandemic. Because the health and safety of our employees and those we serve is our highest priority, we are working hard to make vaccines available to our teams. We offered our first vaccine clinic on December 21, giving eligible staff and individuals served the opportunity to receive the vaccine. MENTOR leadership continues to work with government agencies to ensure that the individuals we support and our direct care staff have the opportunity to receive vaccines as soon as possible.
“We all have a part to play in crushing COVID. Vaccination is an important tool to protect ourselves and potentially others and allow us to safely return to life in our communities,” said CEO William McKinney.
Through our Crush COVID campaign, we hope to empower employees with vital information about the vaccines and access to information from the experts about the importance of vaccination.
While vaccines are being distributed, it is important to continue following prevention measures including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks, frequent handwashing and physical distancing. MENTOR continues to implement protocols consistent with current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health departments and our internal COVID-19 Task Force to help protect the health of those we serve and our employees.
