Good morning Edenton Residents, Family Members and Staff:
The local and state positivity rates continue to decline and as of this week approach 1% consistently each day. Vaccinations remain an important step to reducing and eliminating the spread of the COVID 19 virus. Please continue to encourage your family, children and friends to get vaccinated. There are many options available for vaccinations and Edenton can help you connect with a scheduled resource as well.
Guests in main dining room – Beginning Monday, June 14th Edenton will begin to permit vaccinated guests to dine in the dining room for any meal. The Resident and guest(s) will be seated at their own table. Scheduled reservations will need to be made in advance for meals in the dining room. Masking upon entering and leaving the dining room remains required. A mask or face covering can only be removed at the dining table when you are actively eating and drinking.
Assisted Living visitors – several reminders
1. Visits must be scheduled. Staff may need to turn away visitors at the door in some instances.
2. Masking – Wearing a face covering or mask is required.
Please consider and remember the following for visitation and trips off campus:
Scheduled inside Assisted Living visits:
1. Inside visits are 2 persons per Resident (in resident room)
2. Everyone must wear a mask. No matter if you are fully vaccinated or not.
3. Always practice good hand hygiene.
Scheduled outside Assisted Living visits:
1. A maximum of 6 visitors are permitted outside with the Resident.
2. Wear your mask unless you are actively eating and drinking.
3. Distance from one another if you are eating and drinking and you have your mask off.
4. Practice good hand hygiene and cleaning of tables or food surfaces.
Off campus scheduled visits for Assisted Living Residents:
1. Reduce unnecessary risks to our AL Residents by considering where you take them off campus. A personal home is preferred over a crowded public setting or public restaurant.
2. Request that only vaccinated persons be close to the Resident. The Resident should be distanced and wearing a mask if someone has not been vaccinated.
3. It is a good practice to still wear a mask when you are with them and not actively eating or drinking in your home.
4. Practice good hand hygiene and cleaning of surfaces.
5. The length of time for off campus scheduled visits should be with the Resident’s ability and stamina in mind.
As always, if I can answer any question or provide you with information, please reach out to me or another member of our team.
