We have used a voluntary form to find out when everyone will be fully
vaccinated and are not officially opening up to outside visitors until the
final person has completed their last two weeks, which we believe will be
in early May, as we are all seniors.  (PDX Commons)  There have been some
folks unhappy with that decision, the community, however, is abiding by the
recommendations of our Covid team.
