Asbury’s COVID-19 Prevention Measures

Our highest priority and concern is ensuring the safety and well-being of those who live and work at our communities. We continue to aggressively work to minimize the risks of infections including the COVID-19 virus.

We continuously monitor and abide by the recommendations put forth by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Please see our Safety Measures below:


  • Please do not enter the community when ill, this best protects others who are at risk from getting sick.
  • Those entering the community will be responsible for self-screening according to the guide below. It is the individual’s responsibility to determine if they meet the criteria to enter, and to notify the proper individual if they do not.
    • Please do not enter the community if:
      • Have had a positive viral test for COVID-19 in the last 10 days.
      • Have had any signs or symptoms of illness in the past 48 hours, to include: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
      • Have had a close contact exposure to someone with COVID-19 in the last 10 days. A close contact exposure is defined to mean that you were within 6 feet for 15+ minutes with someone during a 24-hour period that has COVID-19.
    • If you do not meet the criteria to enter, please do not enter and consider rescheduling your visit to another time. If your visit is urgent, please contact us, as we may be able to assist you in connecting with your loved one safely.

Hand Hygiene

Hand Hygiene is the #1 method to prevent the spread of infections. Frequent hand hygiene is important particularly before and after contact with people, objects, or surfaces. Please wash your hands on entry and often throughout your stay.


Masks help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, such as the COVID-19 virus and the flu.

  • Associates will continue to be required to wear masks.
  • Within Skilled Nursing/Healthcare center, Assisted Living and Personal Care:
      • Visitors must don a well-fitting face mask covering the nose and mouth worn within the community. They may choose to remove masks during the visit with a resident when not in presence of other residents, associates or in public areas.
      • Residents are strongly recommended to don a well-fitting face mask covering the nose and mouth in public spaces or in presence of others. Masking may be required if there is an identified exposure or increased risk of illness.
  • Residential living:
    • Wearing a well-fitting face mask covering the nose and mouth  is strongly recommended in public spaces and must be worn when determined there is transmission risk for COVID-19 or any respiratory illness (i.e. flu). This determination will be based on symptom onset and positive cases within the campus and appropriate communication will be posted.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

Associates may use additional types of PPE, such as eye protection, gowns and gloves to further protect from the spread of infection. Visitors may note requirement of this additional PPE through posted signs. Please check with an associate to determine if you may need additional PPE and you will be instructed on proper use.

Additional Measures may be necessary:

Due to active illnesses or high community transmission levels, additional measures may be in place. Please note posted signage or additional communication from the community. Such additional measures may include:

  • Visitation may be encouraged within a residents home or room, outside or virtually.
