COVID-19 Campus Update 1-12-2022
Cornwall Manor’s leadership team, comprised of campus and clinical leaders, continues to monitor COVID-19 and coordinate responses to it. Our main focus remains on the health and safety of all Cornwall Manor residents and employees.
As you may be aware, COVID-19 greatly affects anyone age 60+ and those with compromised health. Cornwall Manor has implemented these necessary precautions to protect all of our residents and team members to reduce the risk of the Coronavirus and Delta variant from spreading. For visitors including resident’s family members, Cornwall Manor is making the following adjustments regardless of vaccination status effective August 18, 2021:
- Visitors are required to wear masks indoors on campus except when visiting residents in their own home.
- Visitors are excluded from the dining rooms due to the length of time they must be without masks while dining.
- Visitors are excluded from campus events or programs to allow for more distancing.
- Based on current guidance, we strongly recommend that residents wear masks out in the community when around other people whether they are vaccinated or not. Fully vaccinated persons can get a breakthrough COVID infection or they can spread the virus without displaying any signs of illness.
- Corson Personal Care: Unrestricted in-person visitation as outlined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Masks and face shields are now required during visitation.
- Health Center Visitation: Unrestricted in-person visitation as outlined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Masks and face shields are now required during visitation.
Positivity rates are increasing; please continue to be cautious.
- Wear your mask when you are in public, around other people or in common/indoor spaces at Cornwall Manor.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid contact with people that are sick.
- Avoid touching your face (eyes, nose and mouth).
- Stay home if you are sick or don’t feel well.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or cough/sneeze into your elbow.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects.
- Do not use handkerchiefs or reuse paper tissues. Once you use a tissue, dispose of it and wash your hands.
We appreciate your understanding as we, along with many other organizations, are navigating this ever-changing situation. Please remain calm, take reasonable precautions and be well.
