COVID-19 Precautions at Ingleside Communities

The Ingleside Family is being proactive by taking measures in an effort to keep residents, clients and staff healthy.   

 The well-being, health and safety of our residents, clients, and staff is always our top priority and Ingleside has proactively implemented additional precautions to minimize the risk of introducing coronavirus (COVID-19) into our communities through education and assessment. 

We are continuing to provide information to our residents, clients, staff, and visitors including Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization fact sheets and prevention guidelines. We will continue to monitor guidance directly from the CDC and local health departments and adjust policies and procedures as necessary.

Ingleside is committed to keeping residents, clients, staff and visitors healthy. We thank you for joining our efforts in keeping our communities infection-free.

We kindly request that you please postpone your visit, connect via telephone or video with loved ones if you have recently traveled to an area known to be affected by COVID-19, or if you are experiencing symptoms. If visiting our communities, we will ask if you have experienced a fever or respiratory symptoms in the last 24 hours. We also will ask if you have traveled recently.

We ask that you please follow our prevention guidelines:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
