Visitation as of November 27 under the following guidelines:
Visits can be scheduled Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Video chats and window visits are the current visitation options.
Google Duo is the platform used for video chats. Users must download the app and have it open prior to the chat start.
All visits are approximately 20 minutes in length in order to accommodate everyone.
Outdoor visitation is contingent upon the Episcopal Church Home being completely 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 (for those floors not quarantined). At this time, no outdoor visitation is permitted until further notice.
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. This is not needed for window visits.
There is no limit to the number of people participating in video chats or window visits.
For in-person visits, social distancing must be maintained and visitors must wear a face mask/covering.
If you bring food for your loved one during a window visit, the volunteer will take it to the floor for the resident to enjoy there. Nonalcoholic drinks are permitted.
No indoor visits are permitted in a resident room unless the elder is imminently at the end of life.
Due to high demand for 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.
