Visitation is not permitted in meal service areas or the therapy gym.
Electronic screening is required and COVID testing highly encouraged. Masks must be worn.
Adherence to the Core Principles of COVID-19 Infection Prevention must be followed which includes the following:
Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or currently meet the criteria for quarantine, should not enter the facility
New admissions may be on transmission-based precautions or quarantine until they test negative for Covid
Although visitation is not recommended for residents in transmission-based precautions or quarantine, visits may still be allowed in the resident’s room with all parties wearing well-fitting masks
Although it is safer for visitors not to enter the facility during a Covid 19 outbreak, visitation will be allowed with information given to the visitor about potential risk of exposure
Hand hygiene (use of alcohol-based hand rub is preferred)
During indoor visitation, visitors’ movement is limited within the facility. Visitors should not walk around different halls of the facility. Rather, they should go directly to the resident’s room or designated visitation area
Disposable mask (covering mouth and nose) and physical distancing at least six feet in between people, in accordance with CDC guidance
New admissions will be on isolation until tested negative for COVID, but are permitted visitation
