The Brant Senior Living’s COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Response Action Plan
Our priority is to keep everyone safe and healthy at all times. We continue to adhere to current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as state and local health officials to protect our residents and team members from COVID-19, and are taking every action possible to prevent it from spreading in our senior community.
The following is a summary of our COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Response Action Plan.
We are committed to offering visitation that supports each resident’s and tenant’s physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, and quality of life. Individuals are asked to postpone visiting our community if, during the previous 10 days, they have had a positive viral test for COVID-19, have shown symptoms of respiratory illness, or have been exposed to COVID-19. If a visit is postponed, please know our team is available to support residents and their loved ones stay connected in alternative ways, like by coordinating a virtual visit.
While visits are permitted for all residents at all times— even in the event of an outbreak—visitors should know there are risks of transmission that are associated with entering our community if we have any active COVID-19 cases. While federal officials do not recommend it, residents who are on transmission-based precautions (TBP) or quarantine due to active COVID-19 may still receive visitors. In these cases, visits should occur in the residents’ rooms, tenants’ apartments and the participants should adhere to the core principles of infection prevention and control, including wearing well-fitting masks, practicing proper hand hygiene, and keeping physical distance as appropriate.
We maintain close communications with our medical director, other health care providers, and state and local health officials. Our team also closely monitors all information from the CDC, CMS, and state and local health departments to ensure we adhere to any applicable revision in guidance related to COVID-19 and infection prevention and control.
Please know our team is readily available to help coordinate and accommodate visits with The Brant residents in a way that is appropriate for our physical setting, meets personal needs, and maintains the comfort and safety of all. Thank you.
