Fully immunized residents and visitors are those who have received both doses of the COVID-

Both the resident and the visitor(s) must meet these criteria, visits must be scheduled and visitors will
be required to demonstrate “proof of full immunization” and “photo identification” before entry.
Please note: this change only applies to general visitors. There is no change for designated family
caregivers. Full details are available in the attached frequently asked questions document.
We know the last number of months have been difficult and have required limits on social visits and
interaction. We look forward to welcoming fully vaccinated visitors back into our facility and we know
you and our residents will be excited by this small step toward “normal” too.
As we slowly expand visitation, we must all continue to take every possible precaution to protect the
health of your loved ones. All visitors will continue to be screened before entry, masks & eye protection
must be worn, and anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 will not be admitted.
We will regularly review opportunities to improve and will learn as we go. We are grateful for your
continued cooperation and patience.
