Cedar Valley Hospice is taking the quickly changing COVID-19 virus pandemic situation very seriously. As an organization we are following CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines to protect all involved and are taking an active commonsense approach to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by following prudent infection prevention strategies.

What we know so far is that COVID-19 is spread much like the regular flu—through coughs and sneezes that put droplets in the air and on surfaces. It may be 2–14 days after exposure before a person has symptoms. That means people can spread the virus without knowing it and many have symptoms that seem much like a cold, so they don’t think to alter their behavior.

Please review the following fact sheets provided by the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) for additional important information.

As a precaution, Cedar Valley Hospice will be screening visitors at all entrances of our Hospice Home and monitoring the health of our staff and volunteers. As a reminder, we request all visitors to think about how they are feeling before visiting any of our locations. We have no suspected cases of COVID-19 at this time and we are taking steps to protect those we care for in our communities. 

If you have questions, please contact your family member’s care team or me at 319-272-2002 or 800-626-2360.

Sincerely,
Michaela Vandersee, CPA
Executive Director
