How CarDon & Associates is responding to the COVID-19 virus
After a long season of window visits and video calls, we are so thrilled to be seeing our residents and families reunited within our communities!
As a family-centered organization, we value the lives and safety of our residents. Throughout the entirety of the COVID-19 pandemic, our dedicated associates have taken extraordinary measures to ensure the health and safety of our residents. Our COVID-19 preparedness and response plans were created under guidance from The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) and Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
Below you will find information regarding our COVID-19 action plan. Additional information can be found in our FAQ’s section.
The ability for our residents to receive the COVID-19 vaccine has been an important step towards protecting their health and returning to “normal” life within our communities. We are grateful for every advancement. Below you will find the most current information regarding family visitation. Please remember that we must continue to implement all current CDC infection control guidance and adhere to CMS’ regulations and guidance regarding testing.
Both CMS and CDC recognize the importance of visiting your relatives as part of staying healthy. You can now visit your loved ones inside the community when the county positivity rate is below 10%. If the positivity rate in your community’s county is greater than 10%, and less than 70% of residents in the community are fully vaccinated, then only residents who are fully vaccinated may receive visitors. In the case of an outbreak at a community, indoor visitation is still possible, as long as COVID-19 transmission is contained to a single area of the community.
If your loved one is fully vaccinated, they can choose to have close contact with you as long as both of you are wearing a well-fitting face mask. Please remember that every resident may not be fully vaccinated and could be infected by visitors. All visits must be scheduled in advance and the visitor will go through a screening process. Please refer to your specific community’s guidelines to sign up for a visit.
As vaccination increases and COVID-19 cases decrease, we look forward to more visitation and social interaction among residents, friends, family, and loved ones. We will continue to make updates to visitation guidelines over the coming months.
