Service Update – August 26, 2021

The vaccine is proven to greatly reduce the chance of transmission, severe illness, and death, but the Delta variant has increased the overall risk to communities and individuals. The vaccine has provided us with a strong tool to protect ourselves but it hasn’t made us fully immune. Since July of 2021 we have had 23 cases of COVID-19 reported at Panorama. Of those 23 individuals, 13 were fully vaccinated. The recent breakthrough cases on our campus and the continued high transmission rate in the county call for increased diligence from us all.

Each time we get together with others, we are at risk of catching the virus and spreading it. That risk level in most cases is mitigated by the effects of the vaccine but there is still risk – and increasingly so with the Delta variant. The following guidance is intended to help you make informed decisions about your own personal risk management.

Wear a mask indoors.

  • To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent the possibility of spreading it to others, wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public. As a reminder, masks are mandated (regardless of vaccination status) for indoor public spaces on our campus and throughout the state of Washington.
  • In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings but you may consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact.

Consider which interactions are most valuable to you.

  • The more interactions we have, the more opportunity we have of becoming infected. Limit interactions to those that are most important to you (time with family, attending church, dinner with friends, group hobby, etc.), and remember the risk is greater whenever universal precautions (mask wearing, social distancing, air flow) are absent.

Avoid crowded indoor spaces.

  • Avoid crowded indoor spaces and stay at least six feet away from others when possible. In general, being outdoors and in spaces with good ventilation reduces the risk of exposure.

Stay home and isolate from others if you have symptoms that are not otherwise attributed to a chronic condition.

  • People with COVID-19 do not always exhibit significant symptoms of illness. Some people are entirely asymptomatic, others may have mild symptoms that don’t “feel like COVID”. If you are experiencing mild symptoms and aren’t sure if you should get tested, contact Marla LeFevre at x7564 or marla.lefevre@panorama.org.
  • If you feel sick, stay home and get tested. If any member of your household or social group is sick, or thinks they might be sick, they should not be spending time with others (even if they are vaccinated).

In an effort to create a safer environment on our campus, we are announcing the following changes:

SIGN-IN BOOKS

To enable thorough contact tracing, all activity spaces will now have sign-in books near the door. We are asking all residents to sign in each time they use a space and document the time they arrived and the time they left.

How does Panorama do Contact Tracing?

When we receive notification of a COVID-positive individual, we begin a contact tracing investigation. This process starts with asking the individual to recall the interactions they had in the days prior to their symptoms and/or positive test result. Through that conversation, we determine who on our campus had close contact* with the individual. We then notify those individuals and help them assess their level of risk. In some circumstances, we may go beyond what the CDC recommends to provide an extra level of caution for residents and staff.

*The CDC defines close contact as: “Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period (for example, three individual 5-minute exposures for a total of 15 minutes). An infected person can spread SARS-CoV-2 starting from 2 days before they have any symptoms (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days before the positive specimen collection date), until they meet criteria for discontinuing home isolation.”

CAPACITY REDUCED TO 25% IN BOTH AUDITORIUMS

Effective immediately the Quinault Auditorium will be limited to 25% capacity (22 people). If this impacts an event you have scheduled, contact Lifestyle Enrichment at x6044.

Capacity in the Panorama Auditorium will also be reduced to 25% (51 people) and reservations will be required. Due to the upcoming closure of this auditorium for technical upgrades, programs will resume on October 1st with reservations required for all attendees. Information about how to make a reservation will be announced in the coming weeks.
