Visitation Policy & Guidelines

The core principles of infection prevention will be adhered to and as follows:

    1. The community will provide guidance with any infection control needs related to allowable communicable conditions as it applies to visitation
    2. Visitors with confirmed isolation-required communicable illnesses will be asked to defer non-urgent in-person visitation until they meet CDC criteria for healthcare settings to end isolation
    3. For visitors who have had close contact with someone with communicable infections, it is safest to defer non-urgent in-person visitation until resolution of illness is achieved
    4. Hand hygiene, using an alcohol-based hand rub, will be encouraged by residents and visitors before and after contact
    5. Visitors who are unable to adhere to principles of infection prevention will not be permitted to visit or will be asked to leave
