New Mask Guidance

** Yesterday the CDC released new guidelines for vaccinated individuals which can be read here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated-guidance.html. Please note that everyone must continue to mask when entering the building, walking through the building, and exiting the building. Residents and visitors who are fully vaccinated may remove masks when in the resident room.

We encourage everyone to consider getting vaccinated unless there is a health or religious reason that indicates otherwise.

Please contact social work staff if you have any questions about visits. To schedule a visit please continue to use the process identified at this link: https://www.stonehilldbq.com/visitor-information/
