Dear Sommerset residents and family,
The Governor has issued an amended Executive Order allowing Long Term Care facilities to begin opening in stages starting June 15th. It is very important for everyone to understand our doors will not be opening right away. This is a staged opening which requires planning and training. There are a couple of items that need to be addressed before we can move forward with these stages:
- A nursing home infection preventionist certification must be completed
- A risk analysis must be submitted to the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH)
These items take time and we need to continue with caution at this time. We understand that family, staff, and residents are very excited to begin receiving visitors We will begin to allow visitation as soon as safely possible.
I will continue to update everyone as we enter these new stages. For now, we will allow controlled, outdoor visitation. We may be able to accommodate indoor visitation for extreme cases where a resident cannot leave their apartment. These will need to be scheduled and evaluated. We will continue to work with OSDH to ensure the safety of everyone at Sommerset Neighborhood. Please feel free to call me with any questions throughout this reopening process.
