Per DOH and County guidelines, visiting at Sarah Reed is restricted as indicated below.
July 22, 2021 Update:
As we continue to enjoy the summer weather and the easing of restrictions in many businesses in the community, please be reminded that the guidance for our residents and our facility is unchanged. Masks for all staff and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required within the building.
Additionally, guidance from our federal and state regulators regarding visits has not changed. We continue to manage occupancy of visitors in our building. As a reminder, all visits need to be scheduled in advance by calling the Main Office 814-878-2600. Visits remain limited to two visitors per resident for a limit of 30 minutes. Visits may be scheduled seven days a week from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. We request that visits not be scheduled during mealtimes as all visits will take place in resident rooms. Regretfully, visitors who show up without an appointment will be turned away. Thank you for your cooperation!
Finally, we wanted to remind you that residents in our facility fall under the category of “highly vulnerable.” Therefore, any visitor who has been exposed to COVID are asked to not visit for 14 days past exposure, regardless of vaccination status of the visitor and the resident.
