Reopening Guidance Updates

March 29, 2021

We are thankful for the opportunity to share updated reopening guidance we have received from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). Previously described phases no longer apply. The full written guidance can be found here: http://dph.illinois.gov/topics-services/diseases-and-conditions/diseases-a-z-list/coronavirus/long-term-care-guidance

Helpful Highlights:

Reminder, it is vital that we continue to remain vigilant and adhere to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention: hand hygiene, face covering, social distancing and recognition of signs/symptoms indicative of COVID-19 infection regardless of the visitor's or resident's vaccination status

  • Fully vaccinated residents can now choose to accept close contact, including touch, with visitors while still wearing face coverings and performing hand-hygiene before and after interactions.

  • Dining options to include restaurant-style service, still require 6 feet of separation between residents with additional seating times to accommodate as many residents as safely as possible.

  • Salon services are now permitted to continue with additional safety guidelines including: no hand-held dryers, social distancing, scheduled appointments and face coverings.

  • Life enrichment programs are no longer limited in size, so long as face coverings, 6 feet separation, and proper hand-hygiene measures are taken.

Welcome back! As always, we are here to help. We are eager to move forward and back to our hospitality, socially interactive, and choice-driven services. It has been a tough year and we are grateful and optimistic that we can continue to navigate this difficult course together.
