Facility Updates

*Please select a location to see the results. The data for previous day is updated by 5:00 pm EST

Facilities must allow indoor visitation at all times and for all residents as permitted under the regulations. While previously acceptable during the PHE, facilities can no longer limit the frequency and length of visits for residents, the number of visitors, or require advance scheduling of visits.

Although there is no limit on the number of visitors that a resident can have at one time, visits should be conducted in a manner that adheres to the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention and does not increase risk to other residents. Facilities should ensure that physical distancing can still be maintained during peak times of visitation (e.g., lunch time, after business hours, etc.). Also, facilities should avoid large gatherings (e.g., parties, events) where large numbers of visitors are in the same space at the same time and physical distancing cannot be maintained. During indoor visitation, facilities should limit visitor movement in the facility. For example, visitors should not walk around different halls of the facility. Rather, they should go directly to the resident’s room or designated visitation area.

According to The Centers for Disease Control, reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed COVID-19 cases.The following symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Guardian is following CDC guidelines for infection control and prevention. Please click here for more information.

Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

Avoid close contact:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who have a higher risk of getting very sick
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:
    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet)
    • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes; these droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
