In an effort to protect the health of residents, staff and visitors, Four Seasons launched a day-long campaign last Thursday which consisted of an informational education booth stationed in the main lobby at 1555 Rockaway Parkway. It was equipped with a storyboard that provided symptoms, treatment and prevention of the reported flu strain, fact sheets on it in various languages and a live podcast on the latest news information from the Center for Disease Control and the New York City Department of Health.

They also provided free hand sanitizers and informational take home materials. The initiative was very well received by the staff, residents and visitors who stated that they found the facility's effort in protecting the residents, staff and visitors very helpful.

Tameka Battle-Burke, the center's Director of Recreation, also conducted a Resident Council Town Hall meeting with the residents to keep them informed on the latest and updated information on the local spread of Swine Flu and the proactive and precautionary measures Four Seasons was taking to protect the residents, staff and visitors.

Four Seasons plans to keep the informational education booth to keep the residents, staff and visitors informed on any new information on the Swine Flu as they continue to take direction from local and governmental regulatory agencies.
