Coronavirus/COVID-19

The Allendale Community for Senior Living is closely monitoring and safeguarding against, the new respiratory disease - coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We are rigorously following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), The World Health Organization and Local Health authorities to keep the residents, families and staff in our community safe and healthy.

Until further notice, we are currently restricting access to our facility by ALL VISITORS, including family members. Staff and essential personnel are screened about and for recent travel activity, respiratory symptoms and temperature tested for fever. Positive results bar entry to the facility and require 14 day self-quarantine.

In compliance with protocols issued by the CDC and Federal government, we are continuing to limit facility access by our staff and other essential personnel to one door, security entrance (door #23) located at the circular drive adjacent to the Rehab Center.
All other doors, including the main Nursing Home (Door #2) Atrium Lobby entrance (Door #15) and executive office door (Door #9) will remain restricted from entry until otherwise advised.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation.

During flu season in general, and particularly in the current, national emergency, we strongly encourage everyone, everywhere, to do their part by being informed and vigilant in the application of common sense recommendations advised by the Center For Disease Control (CDC).

CORONAVIRUS

Prevention:

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website

For information specific to healthcare, see CDC’s Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. Please note the CDC does have specific guidance for travelers.

Thank you for helping us protect you and our community.
