Taking all the appropriate steps:
September Cottage Eldercare continues to work diligently to execute certain practices and measures to ensure the safety and well being of our residents, family, staff, and the community to the best of our ability. SCE remains in tune with the direction of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other guiding entities.
We know this has been a very difficult time for our residents, family, staff and our community. We thank you for your continued encouragement and support as we navigate the unprecedented time.
What you can expect:
If you have experienced any symptoms consistent with COVID 19 that you cannot attribute to another health condition, you are not allowed to visit.
1. If you visit, you will be screened. You will be required to complete our COVID-19 questionnaire. You will have your temperature taken and record it on your questionnaire.
2. You will be required to wear a mask or face covering of some kind.
3. You MUST maintain a 6 foot distance from your resident.
4. You must use hand sanitizer upon your arrival, and it is recommended you use it when you leave.
5. Due to the risk of exposure, holding hands, hugging, kissing, or other physical contact is NOT allowed during visits.
6. We are scheduling visits as able to ensure proper distancing and cleaning practices are being followed accordingly.
7. We will still be limiting visits, only two visitors at a time. We will have a designated visiting area, we cannot allow visitors to walk around the home, it has to be a direct route to the visiting area, so please plan accordingly as we cannot allow you to use the bathroom facilities.
