SOUTHMINSTER IS IN PHASE 2.5
Residents, Families & Friends,
Southminster continues to follow the state guidelines for COVID-19 restrictions and has now moved to Phase 2.5. We ask that everyone use their appropriate judgment and follow the rules and guidelines we have put in place, to continue to ensure the health and safety of all residents and staff.
Independent Living residents are now allowed to have visitors on our exterior grounds. Southminster’s Embrace Health Center is also allowing limited family visitors by reservation only. Independent Living residents may welcome their loved ones to visit in the seating areas available throughout the campus. Please note: no visitors are allowed inside the buildings or on resident patios. Limit 6 people in a group and visitors are asked to keep the appropriate 6 ft. space between themselves and Southminster residents. Masks are required on our campus during visits, and bringing hand sanitizer is suggested. Visitors who forget their mask may pick one up at the Front Desk.
Southminster continues to request that residents remain on campus except for essential appointments outside the community. Screening continues at the main entrance for all staff and residents who come into the main building. Testing continues regularly for Embrace Health staff, and for those who have traveled or been in contact with anyone who may have been exposed to the virus.
Southminster continues with testing, quarantine and contact tracing for any residents or staff who show symptoms of COVID-19. Medical professionals advise that prevention is the best form of protection. We encourage everyone to wash hands thoroughly and often, use hand sanitizer, refrain from touching your face, and practice Social Distancing.
