Bridges® by EPOCH communities are diligently monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19), and our top priorities are to protect the health, safety and wellness of our residents, team members and families. Be assured we are proactively reducing exposure risk by restricting and vetting visitors, regularly disinfecting all surfaces, enforcing proper and frequent handwashing – which remains the best combatant against the spread of infectious disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – and more.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:
- Visitors are restricted to essential medical personnel and visitors of residents receiving end-of-life care only. Any of these visitors will need to complete our screening process, including a questionnaire and temperature check. These visitors must remain in the resident’s suite and are not allowed in other community areas.
- Admission will be denied to anyone who, in the previous 14 days, has traveled internationally, experienced symptoms of respiratory illness, had a cough or fever, or come into contact with someone who has.
- Family members, vendors, health services providers and other guests will be required to follow our CDC-recommended virus-prevention protocols provided upon arrival.
- We are taking extra-vigilant precautions to protect our most vulnerable residents.
Bridges® by EPOCH is continually reviewing and updating our action plan in accordance with new information about the virus and CDC recommendations to best protect our residents, team members and guests.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we implement these critical precautionary safety guidelines.
