We are extremely excited to be able to begin having Visitation here at River’s Edge. We know that the past 12 months have been difficult to say the least. Visitation is so important for the wellbeing of our Residents, their Loved Ones, and Our Staff and it has been difficult to go back and forth between lockdown and limited visitation. Our hope and prayer is that we will not have to revert back into a lockdown situation. The biggest deterrent to avoiding that is to strictly adhere to our visitation parameters. Please, Please, Please if Everyone Does Their Part and follows the parameters, we will have our best shot at Staying Open to Visitation! As long as Gem County continues to be in either the Yellow or Green category and we do not get any new Positive Cases with Residents or Staff we will be able to remain open to visitation.

As the COVID-19 Positivity Rate in Gem County continues to be above 10%, we are categorized as being a Red County and as a result we are not allowed to have Visitation until we are no longer a Red County. Thank you for your patience with this continually changing environment.
Protected together! With the recent introduction of the COVID-19 Vaccines, resident and staff covid cases have dropped by over 50%. Our team is honored to do our part in helping to end this year long pandemic. #VaccinesWork #IVax2Protect

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation in skilled nursing facilities. Until further notice, we will be following this direction.
