Meadowlark's Updated Message Regarding COVID-19 Response 

(May 20, 2020) While the county, state, and country move toward next phases of re-opening, Meadowlark continues to take a cautious and safe approach to ongoing COVID-19 concerns. If you see Meadowlark employees and their families out in the community, you may notice that they are still utilizing masks and cloth face coverings.

Staff members are our biggest risk to bringing COVID-19 to the Meadowlark campus. Employees are strongly encouraged to continue safe practices including social distancing, frequent and proper hand washing, daily disinfecting of surfaces in their home, and wearing a mask when out and about. 

Just because everyone is tired of the virus, doesn't mean it's over. We wear our masks for Meadowlark. Who do you wear your mask for?
