Visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or have had close contact with someone with COVID-19, please follow the instructions below:
- Visitors with confirmed COVID-19 infection or compatible symptoms should defer non-urgent in-person visitation and follow CDC guidelines for isolation. Visitors who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 infection it is safest to defer non-urgent in-person visitation until 10 days after their close contact if they meet the criteria described in CDC healthcare guidance (e.g. cannot wear source control)
- During peak times of visitation and large gatherings (e.g. parties, events), facilities should encourage physical distancing.
- If the nursing center’s county COVID-19 community transmission rate is not high, the safest practice is for residents and visitors to wear face coverings or masks; however, the facility may choose not to require visitors to wear face coverings or masks while in the facility, except during an outbreak.
- Regardless of the community transmission rate, residents and their visitors may choose not to wear face coverings or masks and have close contact (including touch) when alone in the resident’s room or in a designated visitation area. Residents (or their representatives) and their visitors should be advised of the risks of physical contact prior to the visit.
- If a resident’s roommate is present during a visit, it is safest for the visitor to wear a face covering or mask.
- While an outbreak investigation is occurring, 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 designed visitation area. Also, visitors should physically distance themselves from other residents and staff, when possible.
