St. Clairsville, Ohio - The waiting and anticipating have finally ended! Do you want to visit a loved one at Park Health? Now is the time.

There are a few rules we must abide by as set forth by the state of Ohio.

2. Outdoor visitation requests are scheduled by Vicki Williamson, our Activities director, at 740-695-4925. They will be Monday thru Friday 8:30 to 4:30. These will be with a 1-hour limit.
3. No more than three visitors per visit. Considerations and limitations will be made on a case by case bases, dependent on safe social distancing.
4. All visiting individuals are required to be screened for COVID- 19 using criteria established from current local, state, and federal guidelines.
A. Those not passing the screening will be denied outdoor visiting permission.
B. Those permitted outdoor visitation will be required to show a government issued ID with photo, name, and address entered in a log that we must maintain for at least six months.
5. Screened and approved outdoor visitors are required to wear a mask during the visit. Residents, where possible, will also be required to wear a mask.
6. Hand hygiene will be made available to visitors and residents for use before, during, and after the outdoor visit.

(i.e. children under 2, and individuals medically unable to wear a face mask, etc.) For these individuals, the facility may provide alternatives such as, virtual communications (i.e., phone, Skype, FaceTime, etc.)
8. Residents are reminded about the risks of COVID- 19 spread and the appropriate measures to take to protect themselves and their visitors.
