What We Have Done To Help Our Facilities

  1. Closed the building to ALL non-essential personnel.
  2. Set up a triage desk where all employees and essential workers must be checked for signs and symptoms prior to entering
  3. Established a protocol to discharge any COVID-19 positive resident to our skilled nursing facility.
  4. Established quarantine rooms for the following purposes:
    1.   Any resident going out of the building for medical treatment is to be quarantined in a room for 14 days.
    2. Any new admissions is to self isolate and quarantine 14 days prior to coming into the facility and another 14 days within the facility.
  5.  All meals are to be served to the residents in their rooms.
  6. Purchased and stocked necessary PPE (personal protective equipment)  and Disinfectants.

Our precautionary measurements have helped us keep positive cases to a minimum. Additionally, the situation is very closely monitored on a daily basis and controlled by the entire team.


Under Executive Order 2020-6, beginning Saturday, March 14 at 9:00am all health care facilities, residential care facilities, congregate care facilities, and juvenile justice facilities must prohibit any visitors that are not necessary for medical care, support of activities of daily living like bathing or eating, or that are not visiting under exigent circumstances. Additionally, beginning as soon as possible but no later than Monday, March 16 at 9:00am, these facilities must assess for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors for all individuals not under their care who are seeking entry into their facilities. The facilities must deny entry to any individual with these symptoms or risk factors. These restrictions will remain in place until April 5, 2020 at 5:00pm. During that time, the order encourages the affected facilities to use electronic communication platforms to facilitate visitations with individuals under their care.

The best prevention for viruses, such as influenza, the common cold or COVID-19 is to:

  • If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your health care provider. If you do not have a health care provider, call the nearest hospital.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others.
  • Replace handshakes with elbow bumps.

Stay at least 6 feet away from others when in a public setting.
