Everyone – guests, presenters, staff, volunteers, residents – must wear a face covering at all times in common areas, unless they are eating or showering.

Overnight guests will complete and sign a brief questionnaire, and their temperature will be taken and documented by the screener before being admitted. Day visitors will have their temperature taken and documented before entering the building.
- In order to keep our guests, staff and residents safe, all entrances will remain locked until further notice. Those wishing to visit should call our front office for an appointment.
