Visitation Guidelines

The facility currently has 18 employees and 6 residents positive with COVID-19.

We are making every effort to minimize the exposure of COVID-19 to our residents and staff. Our utmost concern is for the health and well-being of each of our residents and to ensure our staff is healthy and able to continue to care for residents. With all of the directives from the CDC, the CMS, the state health department, the state government, and the federal government, we have limited restrictions for all visitors in the facility, including vendors, until further notice. We are closely monitoring the situation daily and as soon as we feel the safety of our residents will not be compromised with visitors, we will lift the restrictions. The only exception with this restriction will be in the case of “end of life” care.

For unvaccinated, incompletely vaccinated, or booster-eligible visitors who have not yet received their booster dose:

In Skilled Nursing Facilities, unvaccinated, incompletely vaccinated, or booster-eligible visitors who have not yet received their booster dose are eligible only for outdoor visitation if they can show documentation of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test:

  • Where the specimen collection occurred within 2 days if using PCR or 1 day if using antigen testing before each visit and for which the test results are available at the time of entry to the facility.
  • Such persons must also wear a well-fitting face mask (a surgical mask or respirator).
  • Physically distanced from facility personnel and other residents/visitors that are not part of their group at all times during the visit.
  • If a resident is not able to leave their room or otherwise meet with visitors outdoors, the visitation may take place indoors, even for visitors who cannot provide vaccine verification or a negative test.
  • These visits cannot take place in:
    • Common areas.
    • In the resident’s room if the roommate is present.
  • The visitor must wear a well-fitted mask with good filtration (N95, KF94, KN95, or surgical masks are preferred over cloth face coverings)
