The CDC, Federal and State government officials have defined current procedures for Senior Housing as referenced at Whitehouse.gov, cdc.gov and Arkansas.gov. We are currently in Phase 2 of “Opening America Again.”
Some of these Guidelines are listed below:
ALL VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS should continue to shelter in place. Members of households with vulnerable residents should be aware that by returning to work or other environments where distancing is not practical, they could carry the virus back home.Precautions should be taken to isolate from vulnerable residents.
All individuals, WHEN IN PUBLIC (e.g., parks, outdoor recreation areas, shopping areas), should maximize physical distance from others. Social settings of more than 50 people, where appropriate distancing may not be practical, should be avoided unless precautionary measures are observed.
Strongly consider SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS for personnel who are members of a VULNERABLE POPULATION.
VISITS TO SENIOR CARE FACILITIES AND HOSPITALS should be prohibited. Those who do interact with residents and patients must adhere to strict protocols regarding hygiene.
LARGE VENUES (e.g., sit down dining, movie theaters, sporting venues, places of worship) can operate under moderate physical distancing protocols.
Under these guidelines, Harding Place Administration continues to consider the current state of the Harding Place Community as well as White County and the surrounding area. We will also continue to be considerate of the social and emotional health of our residents and staff. We hope the following information will clarify how Harding Place will adhere to these guidelines.
