Press Release For Immediate Release

Nye Health Services initiated a restriction beginning last Saturday for visitors, vendors and the public on all of their campuses out of precaution due to the community exposure to COVID-19.

Mr. Russ Peterson, CEO of Nye Health Services, said, “This decision was made proactively to attempt to limit potential exposure to the older adults who live on our campuses. While there are no known diagnosed or suspected cases of the virus on our campuses at the present time, we have been notified by the CDC that the elderly population, especially those with at-risk medical complications are the most vulnerable to the virus. The protection of the elderly we serve, and our team members is our utmost concern. We are working with our Medical Directors on our campuses, local health departments and local hospitals to evaluate and determine the best process going forward to minimize the exposure of the virus.”

No decision has been made on how long the visitor restrictions will stay in affect. We are reviewing this decision on a day-by-day basis but anticipate it will last at least 14 days. We realize that this limitation creates challenges for loved ones wanting to visit family members and we will work diligently to respond to our resident’s needs. If family members have questions or concerns, we ask them to reach out to the campus Executive Director.
