COVID-19 News Update

 

July 29, 2020

Dear Residents and Family Members:

We want to continue to express our appreciation for all of your support and continued patience as we work through this crisis. We wanted to provide you another update on what is going on in our community related to the COVID-19 virus.

We continue to have no residents that are showing signs or symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19.

We have recently learned that another one of our employees has tested positive for the virus after being exposed, we believe, outside of our community. This individual has not been in the building since July 25, and the employee was asymptomatic when last at work. When the staff member was in the building, all appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) was used and he practiced good social distancing with others while in the building. Given these factors, the state health department has indicated they believe the risk to our residents is low.

Visitation Update

 

June 19, 2020

Residents and Families,

 

We thank you for your trust in caring for your family members here at Citrus Hills and would like to notify you all that we are still COVID-19 free. We appreciate your support and cooperation throughout these unprecedented times. Social distancing and other virus-related restrictions have been difficult for all of us during this pandemic. As some states begin to “reopen,” our family members and residents understandably want to know when community restrictions (e.g., visitation, communal activities, leaving the community) may be lifted.

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
