  • Free meal delivery will be offered for March and April.
  • No bus trips to public places, only doctors’ appointments and possible scenic tours.
  • Visitors will be reduced to immediate family and healthcare professionals unless on hospice. Family is still is only allowed between 8:30 am – 5:00 pm.
  • Visitors are not permitted in common areas, they should report directly to resident room after checking in at the front desk.
  • Residents returning to the community following a hospital stay must present a negative test for COVID-19 or a note from their physician stating they are infection-free and do not pose a risk to others.

We will continue to closely monitor the recommendations followed by the state, local, and federal agencies, including the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

As a reminder, please make sure you are washing your hands, avoiding touching your face, using hand sanitizer and wearing a mask if you are exhibiting symptoms. We will be updating these guidelines frequently.
