When will a resident be quarantined if they leave campus?
If it’s a doctor’s appointment where there is no overnight stay and is done with an approved transportation company who takes the necessary precautions, we will not need to isolate your loved one. For any other reason, we will have to isolate upon return. We understand families will take every precaution, but this is an attempt to keep the whole campus safe and minimize risk. The residents may be charged for isolation supplies. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
How long will the campus allow visitors?
We look at guidance daily and meet regularly to discuss the cases in the community, our ability to access Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and testing, along with our staffing needs. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has a 3-phase plan, and currently, we are in phase 1; we hope to advance as soon as possible.
Are family members the only ones who can visit a resident?
No, any person wanting to visit the resident may do so as long as they follow our COVID-19 protocols, which include getting your temperature taken, wearing a mask, completing our COVID-19 form, and strictly going to the resident’s apartment and back out of door #1.
