All visitors are screened for symptoms or potential exposure to COVID-19, even if vaccinated. Those who screen positive for any symptoms will not be able to visit.

And after careful evaluation of the evolving risks of transmission, we feel it is the most sensible thing to do,” Precious Mayes., president and CEO of PHV.
We are encouraging the use of devices such as smartphones to communicate with patients and residents remotely, and the use of iPads for virtual visits. PHV is providing devices to patients and residents for virtual visitation to those who don’t have them.
