Visitation during COVID-19

The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 and allow all facilities and programs to resume normal visitation and access is to follow the CDC recommendations. In most cases, at least one family member or support person will be allowed to visit or accompany their loved one being served, though various restrictions may apply depending on the positivity rate and other factors.
