COVID UPDATE June 5, 2020

Dear Family Members,

Although COVID-19 cases in Okeechobee county continue to rise, we are still COVID-19 free in the facility. Thank you for your assistance, support and encouragement as we make every effort to protect your loved ones.

There will be another round of COVID-19 testing for all residents and staff, but due to the limited availability of test kits, this has not yet been scheduled. Since we are still following the State and CDC guidelines for nursing homes, no changes in our current visitation policies are planned in the immediate future.

As you see in the above photo, we do have new Visitation booths that are available for outside visits under the main portico. Please schedule these prior to your arrival by calling our Chief Nursing Officer Donna Stiller. When you arrive for your visit, please refrain from coming around the booth to touch and/or hug your family member. Many families are also continuing to use FaceTime and Zoom Video chats, window visits and phone calls. Video chats may also be scheduled by calling Donna.
