As we begin to plan for fall and winter celebrations, Capital Manor has established precautionary measures to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and help keep residents and employees safe. We realize the upcoming weeks are traditionally a time of family gatherings and special events, yet the health and safety of our employees and residents remain our top priority.
Our community continues to follow the guidance from the CDC, the state of Oregon, and local health authorities. We also encourage our employees, residents, and their families to follow the additional protocols provided for winter celebrations:
- When possible, host events outdoors instead of indoors.
- Limit the number of guests to a maximum of 6 (per the state of Oregon guidelines).
- Follow social distance practices.
- Wear face masks.
- Sanitize or wash hands frequently.
Capital Manor is following the state of Oregon’s orders for Polk County issued by Governor Brown. This order means meal service will continue to resident homes as dining rooms will not be open for in house dining. The exercise rooms, classes and pool will close. The beauty salon, nail shop, and therapy services will remain open.
While not encouraged, visitors are allowed with the following procedures. A maximum of two visitors to Independent Living resident homes with a pre-visit screening. Both visitors must be from the same household and not traveled out of the state within 14 days. Visitors inside of Manor Care or Memory Care will be limited to compassionate care visits. Limited outdoor visitation will be allowed using a plexiglass barrier. Both visitors and residents being visited must sign a waiver and the visitor will be screened.
Marketing is offering virtual visits and modified in-person appointments. Please call 503-589-3754 to learn more and schedule.
We realize these are challenging times and appreciate your consideration of these protocols to help keep residents and their families safe and healthy. If you have specific questions on the procedures in place at Capital Manor please call 503-362-4101.
