Villagio of Kerrville is COVID-19 Free, Outdoor Visits to Be Allowed August 10th
Effective August 10th, outdoor family visitation at Villagio of Kerrville will be allowed. As we are now COVID-19 free, we are allowing for limited, open-air visits. The safety of our residents, families, and staff members is of the utmost importance. We are all looking forward to welcoming our families back to visit their loved ones, as well as having the chance to see everyone that is a part of our Villagio of Kerrville Community.
In accordance with all state, federal, and CDC guidelines, certain measures will be taken to ensure safety and sanitation. Visits will be 20 minutes in length and by appointment only, which you can schedule by calling the Executive Director or Health and Wellness Director at 830-896-6555. Guests will have their temperature taken, wear masks, and use an alcohol rub before and after each visit. Guests must sign our visitor agreement in accordance with the CDC guidelines for visitation in long-term care facilities, and the risks associated with such visits.
Guests and visitors must remain at least 6 feet apart from each other at all times. You may bring items of personal significance, such as food or gifts, and items are subject to being sanitized. In the event of inclement weather, visits will be rescheduled. At this time, we may not invite visitors under the age of 10.
Our community continues to operate under the CDC restricted status but a newly formed Health and Happiness committee is evaluating how we can better balance crucial required health protocols with the mental well-being and happiness of residents. We will have more updates soon.
Team Member Tests Positive for COVID-19
In our continued commitment to transparent communication with our Villagio of Kerrville family, we are announcing that another team member has tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. This employee has been out of the community since June 22nd and it is believed this individual contracted the virus outside of the community and no residents are at risk. We have also become aware that two other employees are reporting feeling ill and have been removed from the schedule pending testing.
Currently, no residents are displaying symptoms. As a reminder all team members are wearing surgical masks and gloves when providing resident care. We continue to take the temperatures of residents and team members and are closely monitoring everyone for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
All federal, state, county, and community standards and protocols are in place for the identification, isolation and eradication of COVID-19 virus in our community. Resident and team member safety is our top priority. The entire community continues to operate under the CDC restricted status of no communal dining, no group life enrichment and only essential care visitors.
We will contact you if your loved one is suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19.
A family hotline number has been set up, just for families, please call 830.266.7993 if you have COVID specific questions.
Please know we are working very hard to ensure the well-being of everyone who lives and works at our community. Together, we will get through this.
