Hope Landing Visitation Guidelines
Indoor social visits are welcomed, below is the procedure. If you feel ill or have any symptoms, please stay home and visit once your symptoms resolve. Core principals of infection control should always be followed. Please remember that it is always the right of our residents to ask for their guests to mask, test, and refuse or decline visitation at any time.
PROCEDURE WHILE HERE:
- Any symptomatic individual regardless of a negative test, should not visit unless absolutely necessary. If they must visit, a symptomatic individual should mask and limit the length of their visit.

- There is no limit to visitors, but visits should occur in the resident’s room, thus the size and space of the room should be considered when deciding how many come to visit at one time.

Core Principles of COVID-19 Infection Prevention
- Facilities should provide guidance about recommended actions for visitors who have a positive viral test for COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19, or have had close contact with someone with COVID-19. Visitors with confirmed COVID-19 infection or compatible symptoms should defer non-urgent in-person visitation until they meet CDC criteria for healthcare settings to end isolation.
- For visitors who have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 infection, it is safest to defer non-urgent in-person visitation until 10 days after their close contact if they meet criteria described in CDC healthcare guidance (e.g., cannot wear source control).
- Hand hygiene (use of alcohol-based hand rub is preferred)
- Face covering or mask (covering mouth and nose) in accordance with CDC guidance
- Cleaning and disinfecting high frequency touched surfaces in the facility often
- Appropriate staff use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Effective cohorting of residents
- Resident and staff testing conducted as required
These core principles are consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for nursing homes and should be adhered to at all times.
