Eventide Lutheran Home (nursing facility): We continue to monitor the county positivity rate at least weekly using the CMS site found here. This website differs from the State of Iowa site located here. CMS allows for general indoor visits in the nursing facility if:
- The county Positivity Rate is below 10% and
- No positive case in the last 14 days.
Eventide has a number of options available for scheduled visits; the offering will vary depending on each situation on that given day. If you would like to schedule a visit with a nursing facility resident, please call Morgan or Lynette in Social Services, Robin in Activities, or Amy Schultz Monday – Friday at 712-263-3114, 24 hours prior is strongly encouraged.
As reported below, we do have one positive team member as of today. We have reports that CMS is working with CDC on revisions to nursing facility regulations as it relates to easing visitation restrictions. They have been encouraged by resident vaccination rates, plummeting case numbers, and additional data being collected by the CDC. We anxiously await these changes to come forth ‘soon’.
Silveridge Assisted Living (assisted living): Silveridge no longer uses the county’s positivity rate as sole factor in determining what types of visitations may occur. Silveridge has a number of options available for scheduled visits. If you would like to schedule a visit with any assisted living tenant, please call Kim or Kara Monday – Friday at 712-263-2639, 24 hours prior is strongly encouraged.
Heritage Heights and Realife (apartments): Visitors are able to make arrangements directly with their friends and family living in each building.
All visitors shall wear face coverings in each building.
In closing, thank you for showing positive support to all those on the Eventide Campus.
