COVID-19 Updates

3/27/2020 - 2:30 p.m. EDT

While there are no cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) at ANY Concordia location, per recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the PA, OH and FL Departments of Health, we are temporarily changing our visitation policies:

PA facilities: Concordia has implemented a "no visitor policy" at all of its Skilled Nursing and Personal Care Facilities in PA effective immediately, except for patients/residents in end-of-life situations. Anyone entering the building for any reason, including staff, will be screened for temperature, signs and symptoms of respiratory infection, recent travel destinations, contact with someone with a confirmed or potential case of COVID-19, and whether they reside in a community where community-based spread of COVID-19 is occurring. Loved ones are encouraged to contact the Activities Department at the facility to ask about alternate methods of visitation. Concordia Adult Day Service centers are temporarily closed.

FL facilities: Concordia has implemented a "no visitor policy" at the entire Concordia Village of Tampa campus effective immediately, except for patients/residents in end-of-life situations. Anyone entering the building for any reason, including staff, will be screened for temperature, signs and symptoms of respiratory infection, recent travel destinations, contact with someone with a confirmed or potential case of COVID-19, and whether they reside in a community where community-based spread of COVID-19 is occurring. Loved ones are encouraged to contact the Activities Department at the facility to ask about alternate methods of visitation.

OH facilities: Concordia has implemented a "no visitor policy" at the entire Concordia at Sumner campus effective immediately, except for patients/residents in end-of-life situations. Anyone entering the building for any reason, including staff, will be screened for temperature, signs and symptoms of respiratory infection, recent travel destinations, contact with someone with a confirmed or potential case of COVID-19, and whether they reside in a community where community-based spread of COVID-19 is occurring. Loved ones are encouraged to contact the Activities Department at the facility to ask about alternate methods of visitation.

We sincerely appreciate your cooperation during this time. The safety and well-being of our patients and residents remains our top priority. We continue to follow CDC guidelines for minimizing exposure risk to those we care for, and have implemented a number of precautionary measures at all of our locations, such as temping our skilled nursing, personal care and assisted living residents twice per day, eliminating communal dining and group activities in skilled nursing, increasing staff education, placing additional signage throughout our buildings on common sense interventions, screening visitors of end-of-life patients/residents, screening staff, better focusing our environmental services efforts on touchpoints (hand rails, door knobs, tables, etc) and more.

Concordia leadership is in regular communication with local and state public health officials and will update this page as changes occur. To read the current CDC guidelines and updates, please click here to visit the CDC website.
