In-person Visit Restrictions Ease for Senior Communities
In June, the Governor announced in-person visitations to long-term care facilities will resume. Kentuckians are now able to visit loved ones at some assisted living and personal care homes, with guidelines. State guidelines mandate that all visitors are required to wear masks in the facilities, get their temperature checked upon arrival, wash their hands before and after the visit, and practice social distancing. Facilities are asked to create designated visitation areas, schedule visits ahead of time and limit visitors to two per resident, as well as sanitize frequently and screen residents who had contact with the visitor for the level of exposure.
