Dear Family Member and/or Responsible Party:
Based on the potential devastating effects of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) on the elderly and medically infirm segments of our population, we have taken all of the steps suggested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to deter the disease’s progress into Riverside Rest Home. 

To date: We have had no flu or Covid-19 cases in the facility; no staff members infected with the Covid-19 virus; and no community transmission. However, over the last several days, Strafford County’s Riverside Rest Home Team has been working diligently to determine the best future course of action to continue to protect our residents and staff from the likely spread of the Corona virus (Covid-19).

We considered screening visitors and quickly dismissed this option as someone could be contagious with the virus for three to five (3 to 5) days before symptoms become obvious as this is the disease’s incubation period. Screening would only prohibit visitors who are already several days into the disease process. This screening could also provide a false sense of not having the virus to those who are contagious during this incubation phase.

Therefore, effective at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, March 16, 2020,
we are prohibiting ALL visitors into the facility, with the exception of visits to residents who are facing end of life. In addition, no residents will be allowed to leave the facility for other than necessary medical appointments. 

At this time, we will have in place the ability for Facetime visits as we have acquired thirty (30) Tablets which can be used for that purpose. This type of video visit can be set up by reaching out to your family member’s Social Worker.
Please be supportive and patient as we work together to fight this pandemic and keep our staff and residents safe. I want to thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
Very truly yours,
Raymond F. Bower
