Visitor Guidelines:

COVID-19 Nursing Home Visitation 
These things related to visits have not changed:
*Visitors will need to screen in on the kiosk when they arrive at the care center.

*Visitors will need to sanitize their hands and wear a mask(mask wearing is only required if the transmission rate is high) .  Check the note in the entry when you arrive to see if we are requiring the use of facemasks. 

The following changes have been implemented regarding visits to the care center as of 10/31/22:

*Is a mask required to be worn during the visit?
Common Areas:
All visitors need to sanitize their hands, wear a mask(see the transmission note in the entry when you arrive), and physically distance, regardless of vaccination status.

*If a resident is in quarantine or isolation due to being positive for COVID-19 can they still have visitors?
While it is not recommended by HHS and CMS, a resident who is positive for COVID-19 may have visitors in the resident’s room.
During the visit:
-The resident must wear a well-fitting face mask (if tolerated) and the visitor(s) must wear a mask.
-Before visiting, a facility staff member will make the visitor(s) aware of the potential risk of visiting and the precautions necessary in order to visit the resident.

*If the care center has a new onset of COVID-19 and is in an outbreak are visits allowed?
While it is safer for visitors not to enter the care center during an outbreak, visitors are allowed to visit. Visitors will be made aware of the potential risk of visiting during an outbreak investigation, and adhere to the principles of infection prevention. If an individual chooses to visit during an outbreak they will be required to sanitize their hands, wear a mask, and the visit will need to take place in the resident’s room.

*Are visitors required to be vaccinated?
Visitors are not required to be vaccinated.  The kiosk that is used for screening includes a question regarding the visitor’s vaccination status.  Answering no to this question does not prohibit an individual from visiting.

We acknowledge that there are still concerns associated with visitation, however adherence to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention which include sanitizing hands, wearing a mask(when the transmission rate is high), and social distancing help to mitigate these concerns.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the revised visitation guidelines.
Thank you for you continued support of the Hubbard Care Center.
