In addition to continuously monitoring and abiding by the recommendations put forth by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), each Asbury community’s visitation availability will be determined by the local counties infection rate percentage. Current infection rate for Montgomery County: 4.75%.
We have updated our screening process.

Click here for Asbury’s Travel Guide. This document is available for you to review to help you accurately answer any screening questions related to your travel.
If you pass the screening, please continue onto the campus. At our screening area please follow the signage to take your temperature at our temperature kiosk. All residents, associates, and visitors are required to wear a mask on campus and to practice physical distancing.
Residents may continue to welcome guests to their home with no time limitations, including overnight visits. (Please see protocol for receiving out of state visitors below). Visitors must be screened if you are entering a building on our campus. If a visitor is going straight to a Villa or Courtyard Home, they do not require screening. Well-fitting face masks which cover the mouth and nose are required in common areas of our community, and we ask that you avoid touching surfaces and practice 6-feet physical distancing, including one person to an elevator. Residents who leave the community for errands or day trips are required to follow our screening process upon return.
Day-to-day visitors must continue to go through our screening process, completing the online screening form and performing a temperature check upon arrival. As you will note on the screening form, if a visitor fails the screening, then they should leave the community immediately and inform the resident they were planning to see.

Testing is an important component of our COVID-19 prevention strategy. We are pleased to share some outstanding results for Asbury Methodist Village and the Asbury system. To date, Asbury has conducted just over 94,800 COVID-19 tests at our communities with a positivity rate of just 0.8 percent. This compares to a national positivity rate of 8.2 percent. At Asbury Methodist Village, we have conducted 31,238 tests with a positivity rate of just 0.6 percent.
Associates at Wilson Health Care Center and Kindley Assisted Living undergo weekly testing. Residents of Wilson Health Care Center and Kindley Assisted Living undergo testing as ordered by a physician and/or as instructed by the Maryland Department of Health.
Residential Living: A resident who believes they may have been exposed to COVID or is showing symptoms recognized by the CDC as being possible markers of COVID-19, should contact their physician for testing or visit a local testing center. Please also notify Stephanie Sabine at 301-216-4337 or email@example.com, so that we may begin immediate contact tracing.
Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing: Residents are monitored daily for any signs identified as potentially symptomatic of COVID-19 per CDC guidelines. Additional measures are implemented in line with Asbury’s system-wide infection-control algorithm, including quarantine in a specially designed area of the building.
Please visit our Vaccine Information page for more details.
Sanitation and COVID-19 Risk Reduction
Asbury Methodist Village associates are cleaning and sanitizing common and activity areas routinely and have been provided with the appropriate cleaning and disinfecting supplies that provide the shortest kill time for viruses such as COVID-19. These professional-grade products are being used as much as possible by our trained teams, and we store them away appropriately when not in use. If you see additional cleaning supplies around the community in common areas, rest assured they are safe to use and we encourage you to do your part in assisting us in keeping common areas clean.
Cleanliness has always been a priority at Asbury communities, with dedicated maintenance and housekeeping departments ensuring that common areas are kept in good repair and regularly sanitized. With the advent of COVID-19, we quickly enhanced cleaning protocols and time-frames, and continue to monitor the effectiveness of our cleaning products for infection-control. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout campus common areas, as well as signage addressing infection-control, physical distancing, and mask requirements. Learn more about our prevention and infection-control measures.
Reopening Plans and Strategy
The Asbury Communities Operations Team is working with community leadership teams to develop safe, phased reopening plans in line with public health and state guidelines. At all times, we follow science-based guidelines with resident safety as our highest priority. Residents and family members can expect regular email updates as we slowly reopen community services and areas.
Please see the CDC Guidelines on Large Events and Gatherings, which is informing our reopening strategy.
Asbury President & CEO Doug Leidig notes that “reopening is not like turning on a light switch. Think of it as slowly turning up a dimmer switch.” Senior communities such as ours lag for good reason behind these phased-in reopenings; we are guided by many different plans and requirements placed upon us by numerous federal, state and local agencies. We appreciate your continued understanding and patience as we work through this process safely together.
