Starting Sunday, March 20th, off campus visitation and overnight visitation options will resume. Any visits impacting medications will require 3 days advance notice. This is subject to change on short notice pending the community and campus COVID-19 positivity rates.

02/11/2022

Starting Sunday, 2/13/22, We will be resuming visitations. Also we are asking families to contact Reception at (757) 424-8240 to schedule visits to avoid overcrowding in the homes.  More than one family may visit at the same time in one home but the visitation must take place in separate spaces, i.e. one family at the Gazebo and one family on the screened porch in the home. 

We will be providing an updated visitation reminder to the families which include wearing a surgical mask at all times, completing hand hygiene before engaging with the Individual, to keep their visits only with their loved one and make attempts to social distance with everyone in the home.

Due to the increased community and facility COVID positivity rates, we will be restricting visitations effective immediately until further notice. We will provide updates once we are able to reopen the campus to visitors. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please stay safe.--

Starting Wednesday 11/24/2021 at 12:00 PM, SEVTC will resume on-campus visitation. 

All visitors must report to Building 1 at the Reception area for screening PRIOR to visiting in the House.  A mask is required to be worn, before entering the Reception area.  The screening will include a temperature check, completion of a screening form, and ensuring a surgical mask is available for use in the Houses.  All visitors must wash their hands or utilize hand sanitizer before the visit, and practice social distancing.

All visits must be scheduled in advance, scheduling can be done by calling the main number at 757-424-8240 and will be limited to a 1 hour timeframe to allow visitation time for everyone.  The visit may be extended by 1 additional hour, if there is no other visitor scheduled for that House.

There will be only two (2) visitors per Individual allowed in the House at one time; therefore, requiring advance scheduling.  This will allow the House to ensure Infection Prevention and Control measures are adhered to before and after visitation.

Visiting hours will be 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. and limited to 1 hour.

Due to the number of  COVID-19 cases on campus, we feel the safest thing to do is  continue with the suspension of visitation at this time.  We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and happy to coordinate a tele-visit until we can resume in person visits.     Our current quarantine is slated to end on May 17th assuming no additional cases arise.

This decision is not taken lightly and I want to continue ensuring the safety of everyone on campus.   The community prevalence remains around 7.5% and we continue campus wide weekly testing of all employees. 


4-22-2021...

We have temporarily restricted visitation for 14 days due to recent positive cases for employees (3). We currently have 2 homes on quarantine as a precaution.  We are working closely with the Health Department and will continue to provide updates related to visitation. Community prevalence is still high in our area so please remain diligent with your infection control practices.
