COVID-19 Restrictions at Communities Offering Healthcare Services

COVID Resources  |  Presbyterian Senior Living | Corporate

Presbyterian Senior Living recognizes and appreciates that some governmental agencies and portions of the general public are anxious to re-open businesses and begin more social activities.  Our main focus continues to be on the individuals we serve, who are among the most vulnerable citizens to experiencing devastating effects from this virus. 

Keeping this in mind and attempting to provide a balance between caution and the desires of the people we serve to engage in more social activities, we have developed the following approach based on community location. 

This guidance is for independent living residents only. Residents in health center, personal care or assisted living should refer to our visitation guidance blog

The Following Communities Are Currently Designated To Follow This Guidance:

Cathedral Village| Glen Meadows Retirement Community| Green Ridge Village| Kirkland Village| The Long Community at Highland| Presbyterian Village at Hollidaysburg| Quincy Village| St. Andrew's Village| Ware Presbyterian Village| Westminster Village at Allentown| Westminster Village at Dover| Westminster Woods at Huntingdon| Windy Hill Village

Please bear in mind that should circumstances change, if there is a change in the COVID-19 status of the community, or there is a failure to follow the guidelines set forth, the permitted activities listed below may be modified or discontinued.

    • Leaving Campus
      • Must wear masks, maintain social distancing and follow state guidance for indoor and outdoor gatherings
