Residential Living Visitation Policy

Updated: June 29, 2020

On June 26th, as we entered the Green Phase in Montgomery County,Peter Becker Community announced that we will be adjusting our visitation policy for residential living to allow more freedom and flexibility to our residents and visitors. Unfortunately, state mandate still requires use to continue restricting Health Care Center and Personal Care residents to outdoor visitation only. The following visiting guidelines will be in place beginning June 26th for residential living:

  1. Visitors will be allowed indoors in resident apartments/cottages for residential living only.
  2. Masks and social distancing of 6 ft. or greater is required for all visitors at all times on campus.
  3. All visitors are asked to enter at the main lobby at either campus building to get screened. Screening will be done by receptionist at desk during business hours and the resident should use a self-screening checklist if no one is at screening table during after-hours. Anyone with signs/symptoms will not be allowed to enter campus.
  4. Visitors in Ridgeview may not walk through any part of Personal Care or the Health Care Center. We ask you please use other routes to travel throughout of the building.
  5. Doors will continue to be locked after-hours.
  6. Visitors must be escorted by resident while on-campus at all times including when visitor initially enters campus.
  7. Use of common area rooms (i.e. card rooms) is allowed as long as users sanitize before and after use.
  8. No using elevator with other resident’s visitors. Please kindly wait until the elevator returns.
  9. No overnight visitors or use of guest rooms at this time.
  10. No visitors in dining rooms as we allow residents to take.advantage of the limited seating with dining reopening. Visitors can get take-out from the café and eat with a resident in their apartment or cottage.
  11. Visitors are allowed in the gift shop accompanied by a resident escort.

We are excited to welcome visitors back to campus and thank you for your continued cooperation in keeping our campus safe!
