Marycrest Manor is doing everything possible to ensure our beloved residents stay safe. Leadership is meeting daily to discuss the updated recommendations from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). We will continue to provide updates and stay in contact with resident families on a regular basis.
In accordance with recommendations from the CMS, Marycrest Manor is currently restricting visitation of all visitors and non-essential health care personnel until further notice.
Some basic precautions can help to keep you and your loved ones healthy:
• CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine.
• Avoid contact with people who are sick.
• If you are sick: stay home and self-isolate if you have flu symptoms or a fever.
• Please do not come to visit anyone in Marycrest Manor if you are sneezing, coughing or have an elevated temperature.
• Wash your hands well and often. Wash for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Teach your kids to do the same.
• Try not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth if you haven’t washed your hands.
• Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are high touch areas.
• Wash or sanitize your hands often!
