COVID-19 Precautionary Practices
(Last Updated March 8, 2021)
Over the past month, we have been able to begin feeling a sense of normalcy within the walls of WSL. Programs have been well attended, meals have been engaging and everyone’s hair has never looked better! But there have still been a few parts to life that have not been normal or easy to live with, most importantly the restrictions on visitation. We are ecstatic to announce that the wait is over! The time has finally come where we can begin opening up our community to friends, family, and pets with updated indoor visitation guidance provided by the DHHS! The following guidelines will be effective on Monday, March 8th.
While we would love to open up completely, Rockingham County continues to have a high positivity rate of active cases. Due to these current numbers, we are in the state’s Phase 1 of reopening and must adhere to the following safety protocols in regard to indoor visits:
- Visits can occur Sunday-Saturday from 9 am – 4 pm.
Prior to Visit:
- No scheduling will be required
- All residents can have up to 2 visitors at a time
- There are no age limits to visitors
- Visitors must be prescreened prior to visiting with loved ones
- Masks must be worn at all times
- Visits can occur in resident apartments and in common areas
- Visitors must sign in and out with our concierge
For those of us who have missed having our four-legged friends come in, we are happy to share that all companion animals and therapy animals are allowed back to visit!
We are all extremely excited to see everyone back here again but as always let’s remember to maintain the emphasis on our safety protocols that have helped us get to where we are today.
- Proper wearing of masks
- Frequent hand washing
- Socially distant seating
Trips Out of the Community
With this new level of lifting restrictions, we are asking that residents only leave WSL for medically necessary appointments or for an offsite visit with family at their loved one’s home. We ask that you do not participate in other activities while numbers within Rockingham County continue to be high for example: going to a restaurant, going to large gatherings, or going into a store. If you do leave the community for an appointment or trip to a family member’s, please remember to sign out in the “Out of the Building” book located at the Concierge.
Thank you all for your continued support and trust as we seem to be on our way to a more normal way of living!
