We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!
Its been a long and hard winter. A longer and harder year. I write to you with great news, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and we are at the threshold of the end of that tunnel.
On March 11, 2021, CMS (Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services), the Federal agency that oversees Long Term Care facilities, issued a directive instructing that facilities start opening for visitation. On March 18, 2021 the NJ State Department of Health sent a memo notifying facilities that they will be issuing guidance on safely re-opening indoor visits. On March 24th the NJ DOH convened a webinar with all the facilities and discussed the new indoor visitation rules and regulations.
As a result of these new guidelines, Leisure Chateau is happy to inform you that we are in the process of developing visitation protocols to accommodate indoor visits that comply with the new guidelines. At the same time, we continue weekly testing of all residents and bi weekly testing of all staff as per the DOH.
In the mean time, we are re-opening the outdoor gazebo visitation effective Tuesday, March 30 2021. If testing of residents and staff result in 100% negative results for Covid, we will then open for indoor visits the following week, 4/4/2021.
The good news is that now not only will you be allowed to visit the resident, but you will even be allowed to have physical contact IF THE RESIDENT IS VACCINATED. The visitor must wear a surgical mask the entire time. There are other rules/limitations as well, we will inform you of these rules as we get closer to the opening.
We are excited about these new developments and are eager to get them implemented. The residents have been denied visits for over a year now, except for a small summer respite when gazebo visits were permitted. This past winter was tough on them and they can finally once again enjoy family and friends. We only hope that we will only move forward from here.
We look forward to greeting visitors "inside" Leisure Chateau in the very near future. For now, please take advantage of the outdoor gazebo visitation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish you all a very happy and healthy Holiday.
