This page is intended to keep Residents, Family and Friends informed of COVID-19 updates here at Hanceville Nursing & Rehab Center. This page will be updated as needed. 

February 25, 2021

We test Employees and Residents based off of Cullman County’s positivity rate, per CDC  and CMS guidelines.If a Resident receives a positive result, the Resident representative will be notified.  

We are requiring all Sponsors/Family who take Residents to any appointments, to be COVID tested on-site before departure with Resident. In addition, Sponsors who do take Residents out of the facility ,will be required to fill out a Sponsor consent form before departure. 


We are still allowing scheduled indoor visits that will be conducted in our chapel. Families & Sponsors should have received a letter and map from HNRC with instructions. Please keep visitation time around 20 minutes and please no small children. Please remember, patients on Moody Short Term Rehab are in quarantine because they have been out of facility within the last 14 days. Due to this, their visits will have to remain window visits. Please make sure that you arrive on time for your scheduled visits. 

You will still need to plan your visits through our Social Service dept. 256-352-6481 ext. 138

Please be advised by the following:

Visitors must do the following to ensure resident and facility safety:

  • Participate and pass COVID-19 screening and temperature check-
  • failure to pass temperature check or COVID-19 screening will result in denial of entry into the facility

  • Bring appropriate PPE, i.e., face covering. The facility may supply you with a face covering if they deem your face covering is not sufficient.
