COVID-19 Notification 7.3.20

I would like to take a moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to all individuals who helped the Eventide Campus with grass roots efforts by contacting the Governor’s office regarding PPE and visitation. Your voice played a vital role in recent changes for long term care facilities in Iowa. The PPE guidelines have been revised to what we feel is more manageable than the original guidelines. Plus, in all three Phases of Easing Restrictions, Eventide Nursing Facility and Silveridge Assisted Living are now able to start scheduling outdoor visits for residents with a few regulations:

  • Facility must not be in outbreak status
  • Only residents that are asymptomatic and not confirmed COVID-19 positive can partake in an outdoor visit
  • Visits must be pre-scheduled and supervised by the facility (See pre-scheduling information below)
  • All visitors must be screened, practice social distancing, use proper hand hygiene, and wear a cloth face covering/facemask during the entire visit
  • *We highly encourage visitors to bring their own face covering/facemask and their own chair if possible.

Pre-scheduling: Requests for outdoor visits can be made starting July 6th and thereafter weekdays from 9:00 – 4:00pm. 

Eventide Nursing Facility Visitors: call the Eventide Business Office (Tina or Christine) at 712.263.3114 or email ckragel@eventidehome.com.

Silveridge Assisted Living Visitors: call Silveridge at 712.263.2639 and ask for Sara, Kara, or Kim or email ckragel@eventidehome.com.

When calling to pre-schedule an outdoor visit, staff will gather information and you will receive a return call/email of the scheduled time within two full business days. Per State regulations ALL visits must be by appointment only. In addition, a limited number of visitors at the facility are allowed at a time. And, the number of visitors to a resident at a time shall be no more than two.

As the team works to make the visits manageable for all those involved, your patience is appreciated.
