COVID 19 Update 3/13/2020
To All Chautauqua Guest Home and Riverside Senior Living Residents,
Families and other Visitors;
On Friday afternoon, March 13, 2020, the head of the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services announced that the agency will be
releasing new guidance aimed at protecting seniors in facilities from
the novel coronavirus. The release states that “the vast majority of
visitors will be banned.” It goes on to describe a temporary restriction
“to all visitors and non-essential personnel, with few exceptions, such
as end-of-life situations.”
Our management team anticipates that we will be directed to lock
facility doors and not allow the majority of visitors into the facilities.
As soon as the guidance is released, Chautauqua Guest Homes will
immediately implement all aspects of the guidance to protect our
residents and our staff. We expect that this will occur quickly.
Please continue to monitor our web page,
chautauquaguesthomes.com, our Facebook pages, and your
email for further changes. We suggest that you call prior to visiting.
While this could be upsetting, please understand that the health and
safety of our residents and staff is really what is most important.
The Chautauqua Guest Home Management Team
