Campus Visits With Residents

Updated October 6, 2021  

Visitors to residents in any level of living do not need to schedule visits in advance. As you plan your visit, we thank you in advance for following our protocols. They are designed to keep residents and staff safe. Please arrive via the main entrance and follow our check-in procedure. Enjoy your visit with us!

The following protocols apply to on-campus visits with residents of all levels of living, unless otherwise noted. Please click on the tabs below for specific protocols that apply to each of our individual campuses.

  • Guests must wear surgical masks during the visit. They may acquire one from the Reception Desk.
  • Guests may move throughout the community without restriction. Guests must wear masks, maintain social distance and frequently practice good hand hygiene.
  • Guests are unable to visit for 15 days after a positive COVID test.
  • Guests traveling domestically or internationally do not need to quarantine prior to their visit.
  • Guests are strongly encouraged (though not required) to have a COVID test within three days of their visit. We especially encourage testing if the guest has traveled internationally. If international travelers are unable to secure a test elsewhere, we can provide a rapid test when they arrive for their visit.
