Additional safeguards now in effect at the Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) to protect residents and staff from COVID-19 exposure
All residents must remain on campus and eat in their rooms
Anyone leaving the campus will not be permitted to return unless they are attending a medical appointment.
Upper level residents must remain on their unit and independent residents will pick up their meal in the Dining Room and transport it to their room to eat.
Only residents and AFRH staff/key personnel will have access to the campus and facilities that house residents. Not authorized on campus are family, friends and guests of residents and staff.
Exceptions approved on a case-by-case basis by the campus administrator include families of those on hospice care; hospice and palliative care staff; medical supply and delivery services; designated contract staff; and certain others essential to the continued functioning of the Home.
AFRH continues to practice social distancing. In addition, the wearing of face coverings in common areas and the use of hand sanitizer dispensers at all building entrances is now mandatory.
Residents and staff have been directed to follow these precautionary measures:
Wash hands often with soap and water or hand sanitizer.
Prior to entering dining room use the hand sanitizer at the door.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
Avoid touching doorknobs, elevator buttons and other high touch areas.
Maintain six (6) feet from others.
Do not shake hands, hug or touch.
