The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation continues to change rapidly. 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. For the latest information, please read the biweekly communication updates (posted above).
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 to reduce the risk of the Coronavirus spreading.
Pennsylvania utilized a three-phase color-coded matrix to determine when counties and/or regions could ease restrictions. Lebanon County moved to the “green phase” on Friday, July 3, 2020. Cornwall Manor has developed our own set of criteria to phase reopening of amenities and services that are in the best interest of our residents.
- Scheduled visitation for Health Center and Personal Care residents is shared directly with family members.
- Residential Living (campus residents) may have two immediate family members visit inside their apartment/home or outside. Please do not use indoor common areas at Cornwall Manor when hosting family. Visitors must adhere to Cornwall Manor’s mask and social distancing guidelines.
- Currently, our visitation policy for campus residents only allows for authorized visitors at this time. Cornwall Manor has not opened our campus to all visitors. An authorized visitor(s) is someone who is allowed or approved to be on campus. Examples of an authorized visitor for campus residents include two immediate family members, a caregiver or Power of Attorney. Staff may also have authorized visitors such as marketing prospects, administrative visitors, contractors, etc.
