Protecting our residents from COVID-19 and flu

We know that many people are concerned about COVID-19, and so are we. We are taking necessary steps to be prepared should cases surface in our area. We also know that influenza activity in our area has been high. We need to protect long-term care and assisted living residents from both of these illnesses, and we need your help.

If you are planning to visit a resident of Eastridge Skilled Nursing Facility, St. Marys Manor, or Redbud Plaza Assisted Living, we ask that you change your plans and choose another time to visit if you have a fever, a cough, or other symptoms of a respiratory illness.

“Our residents can be more susceptible to viruses because of their age or other underlying health conditions, and we are hoping to protect their health. We know it’s difficult for family members to change plans, but we hope everyone will help us by staying home if they are sick,” said Lura Flentie, director of long-term care services at Community HealthCare System.

Visitors who have had influenza should not visit for at least 5 days after their fever has subsided. Anyone who is experiencing a fever and severe cough or shortness of breath should seek medical attention. Those who have recently traveled from any country with a CDC Alert Level 2 or Warning Level 3 in the last 14 days should not visit at this time.

Thank you for helping us protect our residents!
