The safety of our residents, residents’ families and staff is our upmost concern, and our teams are implementing illness prevention protocol and taking necessary precautions as outlined by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Specific questions from residents and families regarding our protocol can be directed to the community teams.
In an abundance of caution for our residents, residents’ families and staff, we are asking that visitation be limited. If recommended by CDC and WHO, some visitors may be asked to wear provided masks during community visits.
The CDC considers this new virus a public health concern based on current information, and the CDC and the World Health Organization are closely monitoring the situation and providing ongoing guidance.
Here are everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue; then throw the tissue in the trash.
