We have been working with our asset management team to pull together a team of mitigation specialists, industrial hygienists and remediation contractors to assess the smoke damage to the building and identify the next steps. Those individuals have assessed the smoke damage and have given us a timeline (based on what we know) of approximately 5 weeks before the residents can return to Brookdale Scotts Valley.
There are many steps that need to take place before we can have residents returning to the building. The building must be completely sanitized and cleared for the residents and staff to return.
Returns have not been cleared at this time.
We continue to keep our residents and the responsible parties informed of the progress and the timeline for return to the community.
