COVID-19 Precautions

Senior Care of Marion is dedicated to preserving the health and safety of its residents and staff members. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have been taking precautionary measures to minimize the spread of this virus in our facility and the surrounding area. Management and staff have been closely monitoring the status of the outbreak in the area and across the country. As things progress, we will be making changes to visitation and workflow of our facility.

On this page, you will find the measures we are taking as well as some helpful tips you can use to keep yourself safe from exposure. Please call our facility at (855) 573-8466 for more information about changes in visitation.

Visitation Changes

Due to the Governor's Executive Order, we are not allowing visitors, except in end of life situations only. If it is not absolutely necessary for you to visit, we ask that you refrain from doing so until the situation is under control.

All visitors and staff are to use the main entrance so that we may administer a COVID-19 screening upon entering. This is being done to limit the risk of exposure to the residents and other staff members of our facility.

If you have any questions about our procedures during this time, please call our front desk at (855) 573-8466.

Protect Yourself

The CDC has published specific ways you can reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you've been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and others if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Stay home if you're sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick. If you are not sick, you do not need to wear a mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • Fever, cough, and shortness of breath may appear 2-14 days after exposure
  • Emergency warning signs include: difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face.
  • This list is not all inclusive, so please consult a medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.

We are monitoring the situation closely and how it affects our community. We will update our safety precautions as needed and note significant updates on this site.
