Update as of July 2021:
The Briarwood Community has been making every effort to keep Residents and Staff safe from exposure to the COVID-19 virus, following all Massachusetts mandates and CDC guidelines.
Knollwood Nursing Center follows Massachusetts Department of Public Health regulations for skilled nursing residences, and Assisted Living and Evergreens Memory Care are following specific requirements from the Massachusetts Office of Elder Affairs.
In early 2021, Covid Vaccination Clinics were held across the campus, with a high percentage of Residents and Staff becoming fully vaccinated.
Within Independent Living, we limit the number of attendees at events and within the Wellness Center, and we encourage distancing and mask wearing for those not fully vaccinated.
Throughout the pandemic, our policies and requirements have been modified as regulations change and will continue to do so.
