COVID-19 News & Advice

Visitors Welcome!

By appointment
and at designated time frames only
  • Visiting hours will be from 11am-6pm daily and a sign-up sheet will be maintained by the IL Concierge.
  • Appointments will ensure we do not have large numbers of concurrent visits and will enable quick contact tracing should we learn of an exposure.
  • At this time, we will be scheduling four appointments each hour. This allows up to 28 residents to receive visitors on a given day.
  • To be fair, we ask that each resident sign up for only one slot on a given day and only twice per week.
  • Visitors must remain only in resident apartments. They cannot be in the
    commons, dining areas, courtyard, chapel, dining room, or any other public area inside our campus.

Visitor Responsibilities

  • Each apartment can have up to two guests at a time in their apartment.
  • Residents and guests must maintain social distancing, even in the apartment.
  • Residents and guests must wear masks and wash their hands frequently.
  • Visitors are not allowed in the common areas, including the Chapel.
  • Visitors cannot have meals in the Dining Room.
  • Visitors can only visit the one apartment on each visit.
  • All visitors must enter through the 825 door and once screened (including temperature) go directly to the apartment.
  • All visitors must sign out at the concierge desk and exit the 825 door.
  • No one under the age of 18 can visit at this time.
  • No college students that have been on a campus with widespread COVID cases are allowed to enter campus.
  • Visitors must report to The Oaks at Bartlett if they become ill, develop symptoms or test positive for COVID within 14 days of their visit.

The Assisi Healthcare Center is following the guidelines from Illinois Department of Public Health with regards to allowing visits, expanded activities and salon services. The ability to reopen these activities depends on the results of our COVID testing.

Weekly Update

April 14, 2021

We are pleased to let you all know that there have been no new confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 on our campus this week. We will, however, resume weekly staff testing for all employees beginning April 19 due to the county positivity rate exceeding the 5% threshold. At this time, there are no changes to our visitation policies in the nursing facility or assisted living facility and we will continue to monitor IDPH guidance.

We continue to expand our Independent Living visitation policy further this month in the following manner:

  • Visiting hours will be extended to 8am-8pm daily and a sign-up sheet will be maintained by the IL Concierge.
  • Appointments will ensure we do not have large numbers of concurrent visits and will enable quick contact tracing should we learn of an exposure.
  • We will no longer limit the number of visits a resident can have in a day or week. For the time being, however, we do ask that no more than two visitors come at a single time.
  • Visitors must remain only in resident apartments. They cannot be in the commons, dining areas, courtyard, chapel, dining room, or any other public area inside our campus.

Please keep in mind that we will continue to monitor the system and IDPH data to make changes as needed. Our number one priority is the safety of the residents and the staff.

As a reminder, there are still important guidelines to follow as we remain vigilant against COVID-19. Please be sure to observe the responsibilities listed below for residents & visitors:
