Tawes Nursing Home, Chesapeake Cove reopen to visitors

Posted

CRISFIELD — After more than a year of visitation closure to protect its residents, TidalHealth on March 17 reopened visitation at the Alice B. Tawes Nursing Home and Rehab, and Chesapeake Assisted Living in Crisfield.

Residents at the nursing home and assisted living were among the very first in the state of Maryland to be offered vaccination against COVID-19 in December 2020 and TidalHealth is happy to be able to reunite families with their loved ones.

Two visitors per resident, per visit, are allowed. If a resident has a shared room, a designated visiting area will be provided. All visitors, including children, must wear a provided surgical mask over mouth and nose at all times. Those who cannot wear a mask may continue virtual visits. Visitors can only visit one resident at a time, and must wear a badge during their visit.

“We encourage all visitors to show proof of negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of visit,” a facility spokesperson noted. “Visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.”

Visits to the residents in Isolation Units will be limited to compassionate care or hospice care visits. Families visiting the isolation unit must wear appropriate PPE as directed by facility staff. Call 410-968-1022 for more details.
