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 Hawkins County: 11.5%; Sullivan County: 13.7%.
Screening & Masking
In line with the CDC and in light of the climbing COVID-19 positive case rates in Sullivan and Hawkins counties, masks are required in community indoor common areas for all residents and guests at Asbury Place Kingsport. This applies to all residents and guests, even those who are vaccinated. Associates will continue to be required to wear masks.
Family members or visitors will not need to screen in unless going into a public area at the community or to visit a resident in Assisted Living, Personal Care, Health Center or Skilled Nursing. Please note: Masks are required while traversing the community until arriving at the resident’s home.
All vendors planning to visit a community will continue to be required to screen in (including a temperature check) and wear a mask throughout the duration of their visit.
For those planning to visit when/where screening is required, please go here, https://bit.ly/AsburyEntryPass, to fill out the online screening form and then do the temperature check at the appropriate community entrance.
