Dear Residents, Staff, Families and Supporters,

The Bartels administrative team has decided to start having staff and visitors across campus return to wearing masks beginning Thursday, Sept. 21, and will revisit this decision on Sept. 29.

We have had two residents in Aspen Cottage Assisted Living and two residents in Eichhorn Haus Independent Living, as well as one staff member test positive.

There are no cases currently in Woodland Terrace, Evergreen Arbor (both long-term care/nursing) or Linden Place Assisted Living.

I have heard from other facilities with widespread cases and we would like to mitigate this as quickly as possible.

A couple of other updates at this time:

• Flu Clinic for Woodland Terrace and Evergreen Arbor, Aspen Cottage, Linden Place and Eichhorn Haus will happen on September 28. Please return consent forms to Melissa Holthaus at, the reception desk at the Green Entrance or the resident’s respective director or office. Any questions, please call 319-352-6566.

• Eisenach Village residents are encouraged to get their flu shots at the pharmacy of their choice or at their physician’s office.

• We are working with Meyer Pharmacy to further understand the availability of the next Covid vaccine. I will let all residents know more about this next week.

Thank you!

Paula Geise, RN, MSN, CEO
