Nazareth Home is taking precautionary measures and restricting visitors from visiting both campuses due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). This decision follows guidance from the Kentucky Public Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While our immediate risk of exposure is low, our number one priority is the health and safety of our elders, patients, and staff. We are taking a proactive response, and our main focus is prevention.
There is now a confirmed case in Jefferson County, causing the health department to act. The visitor restriction is strictly a precaution aimed at proactively limiting the risk of exposure. We have no reported exposures or cases at Nazareth Home.
We are following all guidance from both the CDC and the health department on prevention steps, screenings and all other practices identified. For the latest information and prevention updates, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
If you are a family member of an elder living at Nazareth Home, a social worker will be reaching out to answer any questions or concerns you may have. At this time, it is unknown as to how long the Kentucky Public Health Department will advise us to restrict visitors.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. For questions, please contact our administrator at 502-479-2526.
