Memo to: All staff, visitors, and essential personnel 3-14-2020

The Governor of the State of Ohio and Director of the Ohio State Department of Health at 10:25 pm on March 13, 2020 issued an Amended Director’s Order to limit access to Ohio’s nursing homes and similar facilities.

“No visitors of residents shall be admitted to any Home, except for end-of-life situations.”

During this time, we will work with you to develop a reasonable plan for you to communicate with your loved one. We are beginning to setup video chat options. Please visit https://www.stllc.org/video-chat/page.html for details and to schedule sessions.

All access to our campuses will be restricted to the Main Entrance for anyone entering the building.

All individuals, staff, visitors and essential personnel will be screened for COVID-19 signs and symptoms each time you enter at the facility. As part of this process, you must provide a legal Federal or State issued identification along with address and phone number.

Please cooperate with us as we protect the health and safety of our residents, families, and staff. For more information contact Kathleen Langer Champlin, Executive Director at 330-966-5604, Heather Coontz, Director of Community Relations at 330-966-5626.
