We’re eagerly planning for our residents to safely reunite with their families through secure outdoor visitation. The Director’s Order to Limit Access to Ohio’s Nursing Homes and Similar Facilities sets forth several guidelines for consideration prior to allowing outdoor visitation on or after July 20, 2020. Some of these factors include:
· Case status in surrounding community;
· Case status in the home(s);
· Staffing levels;
· Access to adequate testing for residents and staff;
· Personal protective equipment supplies; and Local hospital capacity.
We are continuing to evaluate our ability to meet the above conditions. More details on scheduling and guidelines for the outdoor visitation will be provided over the next few weeks.
We encourage you to continue to stay connected with your loved one through window visits, phone calls, FaceTime, etc. Thank you for your patience as we ensure the safety and well-being of our residents.
