Weekly Update for Friday, March 19, 2021
We hope this e-mail finds you well. We are happy to report that there are currently no active cases of COVID-19 in staff or residents on our campus! We are very appreciative of everyone's efforts to prevent the spread of the virus. It truly is a team effort! We continue to screen employees at each shift, screen visitors upon entry, wear PPE and perform good hand hygiene, and many of our staff and residents have been fully vaccinated.
Based on the most recent guidance from CMS and the impact of increasing numbers of vaccinations, Health Center residents are able to have one visit each day of the week, with no more than 2 visitors at a time.
Visits must be scheduled through social worker at Stonehill Communities.
Please use this email address to schedule a visit: email@example.com. In your email, please include the day of the week, who is visiting, the resident receiving the visit, and whether the visit will occur in the morning or afternoon. You may schedule recurring visits (every Tuesday morning, etc.).
Each resident may have one visit per day, two people may visit at one time. Visits should be kept to one hour or less to help manage the number of visitors in the building at one time.
Children are allowed to visit, but must be compliant with mask-wearing regardless of age. The child would count as one of the two visitors.
All visitors must stop at the front desk to be screened--this will include a screening form of questions and a temperature check--and must be symptom-free.
All visitors must wear a surgical mask, which will be available at the front desk. A face shield/goggles are not required, but may be worn if desired.
Outdoor visits are still preferred by CMS and we will look at outdoor visits as the weather allows.
