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.
***August 9, 2022***
A resident has tested positive for Covid-19 within the facility. The positive residents are quarantined on a separate unit. We will be communicating directly with those families with updates. Indoor visitation can continue but visitors must wear their mask and socially distance at all times.
The omicron variant is new and easily transmissible. Even if your loved one has had both of their shots, without the booster the two shots only provide 30% protection against the Omicron variant. With the booster, their protection level raises to 75%. We highly encourage all of our residents and staff to receive the booster to help fight this virus.
Again, indoor and outdoor visitation is available to all of our residents. While appointments are not required for visitation, they are appreciated.
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.
Sponsors who do take Residents out of the facility ,will be required to fill out a Sponsor consent form before departure.
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
- Comply with facility-provided COVID-19 visitor testing policy.
- 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.
