COVID-19 Response: Visitor Restrictions
We are an organization known for safety, and we take that responsibility
very seriously. As our response to COVID-19 evolves, we will continue
to follow the recommendations outlined by the CDC.
Visitors are welcome to both Fair View and Crest View nursing and rehabilitation
centers. Upon arrival, you will be screened before entering. Face masks
are required to be worn throughout the duration of your visit.
If at any time, there is a positive case of COVID-19 detected in a resident
or staff member, visitation will be put on hold. Further testing will
be conducted, and visitation will once again be open when the virus is
found to no longer be in the building.
If you are not able to visit, there are a few additional ways that you
can communicate with your loved ones. Send an
eCard, use FaceTime or other mobile media to contact your resident, or send
your resident extra cards in the mail. Contact the Recreation and Activity
Departments to make arrangements for your resident.
These temporary restrictions/limitations are meant to protect the health
of our residents and to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate
your cooperation as we care for our residents.
