With the ongoing vaccine availability and rising vaccination numbers, we are excited to share that we have revised our visitation policy. The wellbeing of our residents is always our top priority, and this is an important step in regaining some of the normalcy we’ve lost during the pandemic.
Effective immediately, we will be welcoming visitors without the need to preschedule or limit access. Our visiting hours are 8 AM – 8 PM- any visitors outside of those hours should make arrangements with the supervisor. If we have any staff or residents who test positive for COVID-19, we will initiate testing protocols that follow current CMS regulations, but will not limit visitation.
Our pre-visitation screening process will continue, and we require that anyone experiencing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 not visit until they are recovered. Please continue to practice frequent hand washing/hygiene and follow infection control best practices while in our facility.
The risk of spreading COVID-19 has not been eliminated, so we will still require all visitors to wear a mask or face covering and social distance during visits. If vaccinated residents choose to be unmasked and in close contact with vaccinated visitors, that is their choice if they are in a private space away from staff and other residents.
Although it is not required, we strongly encourage all residents and visitors to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, which has been proven to be safe and effective against severe illness. For more information about the vaccine, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/faq.html.
