COVID and Reopening in Community Living

L.I.F.E. is currently working on a comprehensive plan to reopen all lines of services; that will be consistent with local, state, and federal guidelines. This is a summary of how we have phased in visitations to the homes of the individuals we serve.

  1. All visits are set-up outdoors, which allows for social distancing, wearing of facemasks, but reconnect individuals to family and friends
  2. Staff are encouraged to respect privacy of visits, while observing safety precautions
  3. Outdoor visitation spaces have been identified and are accessible without having to walk through the homes
  4. Emergency bathroom uses have been identified in each home in the event someone needs to use it. A cleaning by staff will be required after each usage
  5. Visitors must wear masks or appropriate coverings during the entire visits
  6. Alcohol based hand rubs will be given to all visitors for use
  7. Visitors are not allowed to walk through the home to get to outdoor locations
  8. No pets allowed
  9. Visitors must maintain 6 feet social distancing guidelines
  10. Visitors must remain in designated visitation locations

We will continue to provide updates as we reopen each line of service.
