Oklahoma Expands Nursing Home Visitor Guidelines
An exception to the state’s newly expanded visits is if the county incident rates — and the resident vaccination rates — do not meet a specific threshold. Face masks and similar personal protective equipment (PPE) precautions must still be observed.
Outdoor Visits & Outings
Outings, such as church attendance and non-essential medical appointments, are now allowable for non-quarantined residents. Furthermore, the prior requirement to quarantine upon return has been lifted — unless the resident had a known exposure to COVID-19 while on the outing.
Your patience is appreciated as we work to implement these new protocols as well as share this information with all our families. Moreover, we look forward to you and your loved ones’ ability to visit more freely and frequently.
