Outside Visitation with Mask

August 18, 2021

COVID-19 Outdoor Visiting Procedures Update

We have updated our outdoor visiting procedures:

  • Outdoor visits may be conducted during the hours the front desk is open
  • The visitor must self-screen and attest to no COVID symptoms, or recent COVID exposure
  • 2 areas in front of the big windows will be set up so that 2 residents may receive visitors at the same time
  • If the weather turns bad, outdoor visit can be turned into a window visit
  • Due to lack of space, visits need to be scheduled with the front desk
  • Staff will transport residents to and from the visit
  • Residents and their visitors don’t have to socially distance within their group
  • Any visitor experiencing symptoms within 3 days of their visit needs to report that to the nursing office
  • Outdoor visits will be cancelled if a positive case is identified in a staff member or resident
  • Visits may resume after the test results have been received following the 1st round of testing after a new positive case
  • Compassionate care visits or hospice visits will continue
    • Please request compassionate care visits through the unit nurse or unit coordinator. They will relay the request to the nursing office for approval.
