Middlebury Convalescent Home is continuously focused on the well-being and safety of our residents and staff.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for long-term facilities are continually updating our guidance on testing, visitation, and activities in response to COVID-19 vaccination on a very regular basis.
The most recent update is as follows:
Residents and visitors may visit without distancing and source control masks if alone in the resident’s room and the resident and visitor are fully vaccinated. **Appointments are required “to ensure that all residents are able to receive visitors” (per CMS).
If the visitor is not vaccinated, they can visit with a fully vaccinated resident alone in the resident’s room without distancing while both are wearing well-fitting source control masks.
Communal dining and activities in our facility may occur without physical distancing if all residents are vaccinated.
In order to properly facilitate the visit, visitors that have been vaccinated need to have proof of vaccination, either with the CDC card or photo of card as shown to staff upon entry. Otherwise, you will need to follow unvaccinated visitor guidance.
In addition, visitors that have been vaccinated do not have to be antigen tested here. However, unvaccinated visitors are encouraged to be tested.
