o  If an Elder is fully vaccinated and a visitor is fully vaccinated, the visitor can choose to not wear a mask while visiting in a private area (i.e. the Elder’s Room).

o  If an Elder is fully vaccinated and a visitor is fully vaccinated, they can share a meal together in a private space (i.e. Elder’s room or a private dining space can be reserved in advance).

o  Personal Visitors must socially distance from the Elder if both the Elder and visitor are not fully vaccinated.

o  It is not required that a visitor show proof of vaccination or documentation of a negative COVID-19 test result. The visitor will be considered as unvaccinated if there is refusal to provide information about vaccination status.
