Frequently Asked Questions

A Message from Campus CEO, Allen Geckle (March 17, 2020)

The Campus recognizes the anxiety and uncertainty associated with COVID-19.  Our management team and COVID-19 Taskforce is committed to keeping residents and staff safe.  While it is impossible to predict what will happen going forward with such a dynamic situation, we continue to monitor all available resources to implement safe practices and precautions.  

Our team receives regular updates from numerous state and federal health agencies, along with our trade association and even vendors.  Our staff has received instruction on how to protect themselves and residents.  Our ancillary departments have increased cleaning and other precautionary procedure and protocols to minimize the risks. 

While one of our initial precautions to restrict visitations was difficult, we now know that state and federal agencies and officials have subsequently mandated this action for the protection of residents and staff. 

The Campus is committed to providing the safest possible conditions for all concerned, and we appreciate the patience of families as we continue to adapt policies as new information becomes available.   Below are some of the frequently asked questions we have received to date.

Note from Campus CEO (March 13, 2020)

The Campus has been working to put preventative measures in place pertaining to COVID-19 in accordance with recommendations of state and federal health and emergency management agencies. Though there have been no presumptive cases in our buildings, The Campus has taken the precautionary step to restrict visitations to both buildings until further notice. This is for the protection of our residents and the staff who provide care and essential services. In lieu of in person visitations, our Activities staff will assist residents and families to connect via SKYPE or Facetime. The Campus has been commended by health professionals for the extensive precautionary practices that have been put in place already. Because older adults are more susceptible to this virus, we thank you in advance for your understanding and adherence to our current practices. Below is a link to an article that shows many facilities are taking the same approach.
