  • Restrict all visitation except for certain compassionate care situations, such as end of life residents

  • Restrict all volunteers and non-essential health care personnel (e.g., barbers)

  • Active screening of residents and health care personnel for fever and respiratory symptoms

  • Universal masking for all associates and external caregivers
