University Village is open for visitation 24/7. 

  • All visitors must enter through the front entrance or through the skilled nursing entrance on the west side of the building. All visitors will be required to wear a well-fitting mask, have their temperature checked and fill out a screening form. Visitors can only go into their loved one’s unit, nowhere else in the building (no common areas including the dining room, theater, activity rooms, lounges).
  • Visitors are encouraged to perform hand-hygiene before and after the visit (alcohol-based hand rub).
  • Residents must consent to all visitors. If a resident lives in a shared room (two people per room), visits will have to take place outside of the room. Space will be provided for those visits.
  • Any visitors with symptoms (temperature, productive cough, sore throat, etc.) or anyone exposed to someone with COVID-19 will not be allowed to visit.
  • If the county positivity rate goes above 10%, then visitation will be limited (we can define that further when and if this scenario occurs).
  • If one resident or one staff member in the nursing home/skilled nursing test positive, then we must stop the visitation, test everyone and isolate the one positive resident (send the employee home) before resuming the visitation. We must have at least one round of all negative tests before we can resume the visits.
  • The OSDH recommends outdoor visitation when possible as the CDC states it is the safest way to visit.
  • Visitors not adhering to the OSDH protocols will be asked to leave.
  • We are currently testing our unvaccinated staff weekly and I we will inform you if we have any positive results.
  • The OSDH expects all visitors to adhere to the 6-foot social distancing rule. While you are walking to your loved one’s unit, please make every attempt to stay 6 feet from other residents you might pass in the halls.
  • You will see instructional signs throughout the building, but please don’t hesitate to ask someone if you have a question about these procedures.
  • Visitors do NOT have to show proof of being vaccinated or a negative COVID test. OSDH recommends that all visitors be vaccinated or get tested prior to visiting.
