To Our Residents and Family Members of Scenic Manor:

We know many of you are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) and its potential impact on all of us. Ensuring residents are living in a safe and healthy environment is our first priority.  We are closely following all guidance provided from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to reduce the potential for the virus to enter our building.  It is important to note that as of March 11th, there were no reported cases in Hardin county.  We are asking all residents help in battling COVID-19. Below are some examples of how you can help protect yourself, other residents, and staff as well as prevent the spread throughout the community.

At this time, we request that family and friends do not visit. We are posting signs on our entryway doors to notify visitors of this policy.  We understand that connecting with your loved ones is important, but safety must come first.  Residents please help prevent the spread of infection by exercising proper hand washing hygiene as well as coughing and sneezing etiquette . Please also avoid shaking hands and hugs with any individual.

If you are experiencing a cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose, and/or shortness of breath, please call your physician’s office immediately.

Please make sure we have your most current, emergency contact information. We want to make sure we efficiently communicate with you should there be any new developments.

SLC is following the recommendations of the CDC on prevention steps, including following strict handwashing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing gowns and gloves when interacting with residents who present symptoms. We also are staying up to date with the CDC recommendations as they may continue to change. In addition, we are in close contact with the local and state health department, and we are following their guidance.

We will notify you if any residents or staff are diagnosed with COVID-19. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lisa Hoodjer at 641-648-8008.
