March 9, 2020 COVID-19 Update

This COVID-19 update pertains to the following communities:

  • Heritage Pointe (Omaha, NE)
  • Heritage Ridge (Omaha, NE)
  • The Heritage at Fox Run (Council Bluffs, IA)
  • The Heritage at Legacy (Omaha, NE)
  • The Heritage at Shalimar Gardens (Fremont, NE)
  • The Heritage at Sterling Ridge (Omaha, NE)

 

Out of abundance of caution, as it relates to the cases of COVID-19 in Fremont, NE, we are limiting visitors to only those who are essential to our residents’ medical care. Limitations will also be placed on entertainment coming into these buildings, trips on the activity calendars and other previously planned events.

Please note that neither buildings nor residents are under an official quarantine at this time. However, the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the area, and to our residents, is to limit exposure to others. Residents will continue to be taken to their essential doctor appointments, while non-essential appointments may be rescheduled. If there is a medical reason prompting a need to visit, please call ahead and speak to the Executive Director of the community to discuss alternatives to the visit.

We realize the importance of social visits, and understand the role they play in our residents' wellbeing. During this time, we would encourage you to consider phone calls, text messages, FaceTime and Skype as options. We are monitoring COVID-19 closely, and will post additional updates as we know more about the potential risk. Thank you for understanding.
