Free COVID-19 testing is available to all visitors, but not required. Vaccinated and nonvaccinated residents will be allowed to host visitors both indoors and outdoors. Appointments are requested, but not required. All visitors must screen in by answering a series of questions about symptoms, travel, and contact on our kiosk. Visitors must use hand hygiene before and after their visit. All visitors must be at least 6ft from staff, other visitors, and other residents We will continue to practice rigorous COVID-19 infection prevention. This includes: health screening for everyone who enters the facility, hand hygiene, mandatory face coverings, PPE for our staff, enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices, resident and staff testing as required, and separate areas for COVID-19 care as needed.
All staff are wearing appropriate personal protective equipment, per CDC guidelines. Staff are screened upon arrival for their shift. They answer a series of questions about contact and travel, then a designated team member takes and records their temperature. This staff screening log is submitted to facility administration, daily.
We have enhanced disinfection and housekeeping measures. We are regularly cleaning high touchpoint and resident use areas. Housekeeping team members have been provided additional, extensive training on proper disinfection techniques, disposal of trash, and cleaning of linens.
