Under newly released guidelines, in-person visiting can resume at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center in Gillette next week.
According to a news release from Karen Clarke, director of community relations, visits can resume next Wednesday providing they meet the following criteria: All visits must be scheduled no sooner than one week in advance, visits must be scheduled between 9 and 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and each visitor is limited to no more than two visits per week.
Other visiting options include virtual, window and theater visits, and those must also be scheduled.
All persons visiting at The Legacy will be screened for symptoms upon arrival, and no visiting will be allowed by anyone who is sick or symptomatic. In addition, visitors must wear the required personal protective equipment upon arrival, visits will be allowed in the resident’s room only, and visits are limited to one visitor at a time.
Clarke said visitation will be discontinued immediately if there are confirmed COVID-19 cases in The Legacy and/or if the positive rate of COVID-19 in Campbell County increases to 10 percent or higher.
Campbell County Health continues to require all employees, patients, visitors, support persons and volunteers to be screened upon entrance and wear a mask when in any Campbell County Health facilities. That includes Campbell County Memorial Hospital, including the main and walk-in clinics, emergency medical services, the Fourth Street Building, Home Health, Home Medical Resources, Kid Clinic, Pioneer Building, Stocktrail Building, The Legacy and the Wright Clinic and Occupational Health.
