City of Leonard residences. Upon receiving concerns from the community, I contacted the President of Daybreak Venture, LLC.
Upon speaking with Mr. Wallace, I asked if he could elaborate on the details of what has happened and what he believes will happen with the facility. Mr. Wallace advised the decision to move the Leonard Manor residents was due to the grease trap repair and having to replace some pipes inside the facility. Thus, not having a functional kitchen.
Daybreak made the decision to transfer their Leonard Manor residents to their sister facility, Seven Oaks, in Bonham. In an effort to retain the Leonard Manor staff, he allowed the staff to work in the Seven Oaks facility. The remaining Leonard Manor staff made significant repairs to the Leonard Manor so as to make the facility attractive to the returning residents.
Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic occurred during the grease trap repair. Mr. Wallace advised the risk of infecting the residents and staff during their return to Leonard Manor was too great of a risk and his primary concern was to keep the residents and staff safe.
Mr. Wallace advised he had never intended upon creating a Covid-19 only facility in the Leonard Manor, however, should circumstances dictate otherwise, he recognized the value of utilizing Leonard Manor for such use. At this time, Mr. Wallace is anticipating the return of the Leonard Manor residents as soon as the Covid-19 pandemic risks are minimized, again, focusing on the safety of the residents and staff. Mr. Wallace stated there are no certain time-lines for the minimization of the pandemic, therefore, no hard time-lines can be established for the return of the residents and staff.
Mr. Wallace assured the Leonard Manor resident’s families are and have always had the ability to remove their family members at any time they choose.
It is my belief; Mr. Wallace is taking every possible precaution to minimize risks and provide the best possible care for all Daybreak residents and staff.

The spray routes vary according to wind direction and wind speed.
