Kingston Residence of Vermilion Visitation Guidelines & Scheduling
We are excited to help our residents safely visit with their families through our secure visitation policy. As our regulations allow, we will continue to adjust our policies accordingly. To maintain the safety and comfort of all, we recommend 2 persons visit a resident at a time, although there may be circumstances that more are able to visit safely.
Visitors must be of an age to understand and follow all guidelines. Please see the steps below to coordinate your visit to our community.
Step 1: Agree to follow all Core Principles of COVID-19 Infection Prevention as follows:
- All visitors will be screened. Visitors, regardless of their vaccination status, will be unable to visit if they have:
- current SARS-CoV-2 infection
- prolonged close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone with SARS-CoV-2 infection in the prior 14 days or have otherwise met criteria for quarantine.
- Visitors, regardless of their vaccination status, will be required to wear a facemask while in the facility and during the visit. *For the fully vaccinated resident & visitor: due to the highly contagious Delta variant, even if both the visitor and the resident are fully vaccinated, wearing of facemasks by both resident and visitor is requested. However, if visiting outdoors and socially distanced, masks may be removed.
- Hand hygiene should be performed by the patient/resident and the visitors before and after contact.
- Visitors, regardless of their vaccination status, should socially distance (maintaining at least 6 feet between people) from other patients/residents, visitors that are not part of their group, and facility employees. *For the fully vaccinated resident & visitor: due to the highly contagious Delta variant, even if both the visitor and the resident are fully vaccinated, while alone in the patient/resident’s room or the designated visitation area, patients/residents and their visitor(s) can choose to have close contact (including touch) but wearing of facemasks are still requested unless visiting outdoors and socially distanced.
- Compassionate Care Visits with residents in quarantine/transmission-based precautions will require the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as facemask, gown and gloves when visiting the resident.
