Illinois Enters Tier 3 Mitigations COVID-19

Effective 11/20/20, Illinois enters Tier 3 Mitigations due to the high number of COVID-19 cases in the state.  For Skilled Nursing Facilities, this means:

  • All visits, including outdoor, are suspended.  The only exception is Compassionate Care Visits for end-of-life residents.
  • Communal Dining is suspended, meaning all residents are now taking meals n their rooms instead of gathering in the dining rooms.
  • Group Activities are suspended, so all activities become one-on-one in resident rooms.
  • Barber and Beauty Shop services remain suspended as in Tiers 1 and 2.
