COVID-19 Information

We are grateful for the opportunity to support and provide care to our clients, families and caregivers.

The health, safety and well-being of all those we serve are always top priorities for us. As we continue to navigate through the pandemic, our goal is to provide you with timely, relevant information, updates and advice from reliable sources you can trust.

UPDATED (as of September 28, 2022)

The CDC has issued guidance that workers in home health care, nursing homes, hospitals and other health care settings are no longer required to wear masks indoors.  This guidance has ended a blanket indoor mask requirement that had been in effect for the last two and a half years.

Even though masks are no longer required in facilities where transmission is not high, the CDC still recommends they be worn:

– If someone has a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 or other respiratory infection
– If someone has close contact or a higher-risk exposure with someone who had COVID-19 for 10 days after their exposure
– If someone lives or works somewhere that is experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak (in this case, universal mask wearing can stop once no new cases have been identified for 14 days)
– If mask wearing is recommended by local public health authorities

We will continue to follow CDC guidance and provide updates on this page on any changes to our protocols.
