The American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living issued guidance that recommends limiting non-essential visits to long term care patients and residents for all outside parties. We understand this is a stressful time and that checking in on your loved one is important.

The coronavirus poses a serious threat to the elderly and individuals with underlying health conditions, and those in nursing homes and assisted living communities are typically both. This is why we have made recommendations because we want ensure the frail and elderly are kept safe.
