November brings indoor visits into the house living room Monday to Sunday (excluding Saturday) at 10 am and 2 pm, with one family visit per time slot with up to two visitors. Families can schedule up to, but no more than, 2 visits per week. (This allows us to accommodate all families wanting to visit.)
Slots can be reserved online as usual. Visitors will be screened at the front door and led directly to the living room. Staff members will escort residents (wearing masks) to the living room for the visit and then back to their rooms or an activity after the visit ends.
Holiday Visits Require Extra Precautions
The holidays bring fresh challenges for keeping visits safe. Though we understand families want to, and are used to being together during the holidays, family members who are not in a resident’s usual bubble will need to take extra precautions before visiting Decatur House. These include signing a document stating they’ve quarantined for 2 weeks up to their visit or to show proof of a negative Covid test (with 3 days of their visit).
As always, thank you for following all the important safety guidelines for visits.
