SNF News & Updates

Please check back regularly as we'll update this page to include topics such as the latest visitation restrictions at our SNF facility.

COVID-19 continues to impact Skilled Nursing Facility visitation guidelines. Door County’s transmission rate remains high. Community spread puts our residents at risk.

Our most recent outbreak concluded 09/20/2021 with all residents and staff testing negative.

Visitors are welcomed, however restrictions remain. The doors are kept locked so ring the doorbell for admittance. Once inside you’ll find a kiosk on the front desk. You’ll be asked a series of questions regarding signs and symptoms of COVID and exposure to someone with COVID. You will also have your temperature checked. Once the process is completed, a sticker will print, which we ask that you apply in a visible area so staff is aware you’ve been checked in.

While you are visiting, you will need to abide by the following;

  • Perform hand hygiene when entering the facility
  • Masks are required and MUST remain on, no cloth masks (we will supply if needed) Nose and mouth must be covered.
  • Go directly to resident room or preferred visiting area
  • If both resident and visitor are fully vaccinated (14 days after last vaccine) and in a private area, masks may be removed for visitation or eating together
  • Maintain a six foot distance from others

We ask that you abide by these guidelines out of respect for the safety of the residents and staff.
