To Our Residents and Family Members:
Due to government privacy requirements, we cannot divulge specific information about the individuals who have confirmed or suspected COVID-19, unless they are your family member and you have the necessary permissions to receive such information.
We know you are concerned about your loved one, but it is crucial that we restrict visitation to reduce the spread of this virus to others. We will contact you directly if your loved one is suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19.
We are excited to announce that we will begin allowing inside visitations within our facility and also will be allowing residents to go on outings! Please contact Crystal our Scheduling Coordinator to schedule a visit or outing with a resident- her number is 322-7365.

We are excited to announce that our residents will be able to go on outings in the community! The resident will need to complete a pre-outing screening as well as a post-outing screening to determine their risk level. If the outing involved a high risk exposure, the resident may have further restrictions upon return to the facility. Restrictions depend upon both the resident’s COVID vaccination status as well as the COVID vaccination status of the individuals that the resident has contact with during the outing. Below are examples of exposure risks and explanations for those risk levels. Please contact Crystal, our Scheduling Coordinator at 322-7365 to schedule an outing with your loved one.
