Effective November 12, 2021, guidance from CMS allows visitors for all residents at all times. The Health Center is in Outbreak Status due to employee cases. Please read full announcements here. Thank you.
Stonehill Communities regards the safety, health, and well-being of our residents and staff as the utmost priority. Visitors are allowed for all residents.
CMS has provided updated guidance regarding visitation following recent COVID-19 vaccinations. Effective 11/13/2021, Stonehill Communities Health Center will allow visitors for all residents at all times, regardless of Outbreak Status. Families are encouraged to schedule visits among themselves to help us limit the number of visitors in the facility at one time and allow for physical distance.
All visitors will need to follow COVID-19 Infection Prevention strategies that include:
o Screening of all who enter the facility for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., temperature checks, questions or observations about signs or symptoms), and denial of entry of those with signs or symptoms
o Hand hygiene (use of alcohol-based hand rub) before and after visit
o Mask covering mouth and nose (visitors may remove their masks in the resident room if all parties have been fully vaccinated)
Please call 563-557-7180 and speak with social work staff if you have questions.
Per CMS, an outbreak is defined as one employee who has worked within 48 hours prior to testing positive or one resident.
Visitation is permitted. Visitors will be made aware of the potential risk of visiting during an outbreak investigation, wear a face covering/mask during visit, adhere to infection control measures, and visit in the resident’s room.
Visitation is permitted but not recommended. Visitors will be made aware of the potential risks and precautions necessary. Visits must occur in the resident’s room. Personal protective equipment may be offered.
