COVID-19 News Schedule A Family Visit/Call Staff Vaccination Requirement

Published by

To All Visitors

UPDATE: DPH has issued its guidance on family visits.  We look forward to updating this information and welcoming fully vaccinated (14 days after the second dose) family members at some point next week.  Details to come.

We understand that on March 10, 2021 the CDC issued new federal guidelines regarding visits to residents in nursing centers. Unfortunately, we are guided by the more stringent rules that were last updated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) on February 3, 2021.

We have been told that DPH is currently reviewing the CMS/CDC guidance and we expect to hear from them shortly. In the meantime, we have been reminded that JGS Lifecare must continue to adhere to the current practices until further guidance is provided by DPH.

If you have any questions, please direct them to the Nurse Managers, Social Workers, Department Managers or the Receptionists.

Thank you for your understanding.

The JGS Leadership Team
