The Garlands COVID-19 task force continues to meet regularly to discuss new federal, state, and local guidelines, our current safety precautions, and lessons to be learned from outbreak areas throughout the U.S. and world. The following are highlights of the current policies put in place at The Garlands as they relate to the pandemic (additional guidelines are updated and posted internally for Garlands members and families).
All Garlands members, staff, and visitors must check-in at The Garlands monitoring center for any COVID-19 symptoms before gaining entry/re-entry to the community.
Guests of Independent Living Members are limited to two people per indoor visit. There are no limits to outdoor visits. Indoor visits with Prairieview Members are by appointment only and can be scheduled by contacting Terri Forti, Activities Director at (847) 852-3590 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Face Coverings and Social Distancing
All Garlands members, team members, and staff are required to wear a face-covering and maintain proper social distancing in common areas and are encouraged to do so throughout the campus.
Additional detailed information about procedures and policies as they relate to guests at The Garlands, quarantine protocols, and off-campus travel changes regularly and is communicated weekly to Garlands members and their family members. For more information, please call The Garlands of Barrington at 847-304-1996.
Thank you for your ongoing efforts to help prevent the spread of this disease and its impact on Garlands members and team members.
