Those experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms are kindly asked to not come to visit your loved one, as you will not be allowed into the facility.
Visitation is still open and takes place in designated areas. No in room visits are allowed. Strict adherence to infection control protocol will be enforced. Visitors are to wear a tight fitted face mask, maintain 6 feet distance, and wash hands upon entering and exiting the facility.
