To protect the health of residents and staff during the COVID-19 healthcare crisis, only essential visitors for healthcare and end of life may enter our skilled nursing and assisted living communities until the threat has passed. We will screen each visitor for symptoms of COVID-19, including checking symptoms and taking everyone’s temperature.
Uplands Village is also taking precautions to reduce the risk that COVID-19 could be introduced and spread in our communities. That includes following all infection control guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local health departments.
In compliance with new federal regulations, residents and their primary contacts will be notified within 12 hours if a resident or staff member from their community tests positive for COVID-19 and/or if three persons in the community develop new respiratory symptoms within a 72-hour period.
