GUIDELINES FOR VISITING OUR COMMUNITIES:
3/12/2020 and Until Further Notice

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, and per guidance from regulatory agencies, we are restricting visitation with our residents. Social visits are not allowed, the only visitation allowed is if it is medically necessary. We realize that this may be an inconvenience, however we are committed to taking a proactive approach to maintain the safety and wellness of our residents. If you have any questions, please feel free to discuss with community leadership. Our communities will be happy to assist our residents in maintaining communication with all loved ones telephonically, or via video through Facetime, Skype or other method.

All who enter our communities will be screened for the following:

  • Travel history to certain at risk locations and those that have had contact with individuals who have traveled to at risk locations
  • Any physical symptoms of COVID-19, including temperature check
  • Attendance at the BIOGEN conference in Boston in February and those in contact with anyone who attended the conference

We appreciate your commitment to providing the safest environment possible for each of our residents and we are grateful for the trust you have in Wingate.
