Resumption of Indoor Visitation

Resumption of Indoor Visitation: Families and friends of residents can resume indoor visitation starting again on Monday, April 12th. Due to recent staff exposure to COVID, we were unable to allow visitors, per health department, for 28 days, but beginning on Monday, we will open our doors again to socially distanced visitation in our Great Room and TV room. We are limited to these rooms and no visitations in resident rooms will be allowed at this time unless it is a compassionate care visit. We will be providing visitor log with screening on recent exposure, vaccination status, and any symptoms before visitation. PPE will be provided and hand hygiene required. Residents who have not received the vaccine or are under 14 day quarantine precautions, will not be able to have indoor visitors at this time, unless it’s related to compassionate care.  Outdoor visits are still available for unvaccinated residents. Due to limited space, we are asking that ONLY 2 PEOPLE FROM SAME HOUSEHOLD per indoor visit. Hugging is allowed, but discouraged, as it is recommended to keep socially distanced during the visit. Compassionate care visits still are able to occur at any time regardless of COVID activity in the building and resident vaccination status. The ESSENTIAL SUPPORT PERSON is no longer active now that residents are allowed indoor visits. If the facility enters “outbreak status” again, we will have to limit indoor visitation until the county deems it safe or after 28 days. Visitors of Woodland Care Center residents will be able to schedule times between 8am-8pm, this visits are limited to under an hour to allow all residents and families the opportunity to see their loved ones during hours of operation. More policy revisions and updates will occur, so please contact our facility at 360-225-9443 and ask for management for further clarification and visit our website where we update our status of infections and/or visitation restrictions. In the next couple of days we will begin taking appointments over the phone for Monday’s reopening. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience!
