Visitation Policy

If a site is not on outbreak or under investigation, then there are no restrictions on in-person visitation. However, given the high levels of community spread, we are asking visitors to consider refraining from in-person visitation at this time.

Visits must still be pre-scheduled (see below), visitors must show proof of full vaccination or a recent negative COVID test, and visitors must screen and wear appropriate PPE while visiting. If a site is on outbreak, only one of the four Designated Support Persons (DSPs) may visit.

Visitors are strongly encourage to supply and bring a KN95 or N95 mask when visiting (unfortunately, we are unable to supply them). If you are not able to bring one, we will provide you with a Level 3 surgical mask. Face shields are also required at all sites which are on otbreak or under investigation.

Visits must be pre-scheduled through Cubigo (see https://www.shepherdscare.org/family-portal/) and visitors must provide proof of full immunization, must not have had close contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case in the last 14 days, and must not have returned from our of country in the last 14 days.

Under the current guidelines from AHS, a COVID positive individual is deemed “Recovered” when all symptoms resolved and the individual has gone 48 hours without a fever. Individuals are not permitted to be PCR tested for 90 days.
