Temporary Visitation Restriction
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, DUE TO THE HIGH RISK ASSOCIATED WITH THE COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) OUR FACILITY HAS MADE A DECISION TO IMPOSE A TEMPORARY VISITATION RESTRICTION.
We are taking these highly unusual measures in order to protect the residents entrusted in our care as well as to protect our wonderful hardworking staff!
Yesterday the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) strongly recommended restricting visitations in our long term care facilities. This recommendation was based on the review by CDC of the death rate in the elderly who have chronic diseases if they become infected with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are dedicated to protecting your family member and are committed to preventing this virus from entering our facility. It is for this reason that we have made the decision to comply with this recommendation.
We will continue all ESSENTIAL medical appointments and medical visitations. During this temporary restriction, our resident will be unable to attend non-essential outside visitations/activities.
We understand that you will be anxious about your family member. Therefore, even though you may not be able to physically see your family member, we will make provisions for you to be able to stay in communication with them. These provisions may consist of Skype, Face Time, or cell phone calls.
We hope that you will understand and support this critical decision to STOP Visitors except those contractors and vendors screened by facility staff and deemed to be essential.
Your facility Administrator will continue to monitor the most current CDC recommendations and will announce when this temporary restriction can be lifted. We will also post routine updates on our website and Facebook page.
