Video chats, window visits and in-person visits are the three visitation options.
Two visitors per resident are allowed for in-person visits. There is no limit for video chats or window visits.
In-person visits will be outside but will relocate indoors in extreme weather conditions only such as excessive heat, storm, wind, etc.
In the case that your visit needs to shift indoors, you will be directed to a designated area. These areas will allow for social distancing and visitors must wear a medical face mask which is required by the DOH. If you do not have a medical face mask, ESLC will provide one. ESLC will use a plexiglass divider to avoid the resident having to wear a mask as well.
You will be asked screening questions and have your temperature taken upon arrival.
In-person visitation is contingent upon the Episcopal Church Home being free of COVID-19 for 14 days. If a resident or staff member tests positive for the virus, we must suspend any outdoor visitation for the 14-day period. In this case, we would convert your visit to a video chat or window visit.
Proof of a negative COVID-19 test is required for any in-person visits and the test has to be within 7 days of a visit. Hard copy or electronic version is acceptable
Also, due to high demand for outdoor visits for all 150+ residents at this time, there is a limit of one visit per week. If you have extenuating circumstances and need additional visits, please contact your social worker.
Visits can be scheduled Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
