Right now, we are slowly resuming activities at Equinox Village.

Starting next week we will have four exercise classes available to residents. This is by reservation only (meaning residents have to sign up in advance due to the space limitations, as we abide by social distancing).

Residents are playing bridge and Mah Jong in common areas, as well as in their apartments. A resident only Introduction/Refresher Maj Jong course is being led by a husband and wife couple starting this coming week, as well. We take pride in that our residents are active and are seeking more social opportunities, so we are happy to be able to start adding back such programming.

We are finalizing plans for re-opening the Dining Room for meals in the near future, assuming we continue to feel “safe” doing so.

We do want to caution our residents and their family members to continue to abide by the social distancing, mask wearing and travel guidelines advised by the state of Vermont. Many people are traveling right now, here to Vermont to visit friends and loved ones, as well as traveling out-of-state to get in one more vacation. Please abide by Vermont State’s Travel Guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.
