In light of the World Health Organization declaring the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic, Immanuel Lutheran Communities is establishing precautionary measures as of 7p.m. Friday, March 13, 2020. At this time, access to the community is restricted to essential visitors only. The new visitor restrictions follow guidance from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid as well as the Center for Disease Control, which recommends limiting the number of people who enter.
“The health and wellness of the residents and staff of Immanuel Lutheran Communities is our number one priority,” says Jason Cronk, Immanuel Lutheran Communities CEO. “As we navigate this challenge, we remain focused on providing exceptional care and service for our residents.”
Keeping in touch with family and friends is important during this time and staff will assist residents with communication alternatives such as video chats.
Immanuel Lutheran Communities will continue to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and local and state health departments.
