A Plan to Mitigate the Spread of COVID-19

To Our Valued Residents, Staff and Guests:

During this past year, Tamarisk NorthShore has remained diligent in preventing and minimizing the spread of COVID-19. We are committed to protecting the wellbeing of our residents, staff, clients and visitors while still delivering exceptional service. We are very appreciative of your cooperation and trust during this time and thank you for your patience as the situation continues to evolve.

We are pleased to announce the Tamarisk NorthShore residents and staff have received their first dose of the vaccination, with the second dose scheduled for the end of February. Please note, we are unable to provide the vaccine for those outside of Tamarisk NorthShore. We recommend that you speak with your physician and check the website of the county or city in which you live for further information.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will adapt our strategies based on the guidelines by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health, Lake County Health Department and other health care experts. Please find an overview of our current protocol and safety precautions below.
