Visitation Guidelines


Hello Friends and Family,  

We, at Rushville Nursing and Rehab, continue to be committed to keeping our residents and staff safe during this pandemic. As a county, our positive COVID19 rate has decreased and we will begin indoor visitation. Appointments need to be made at least 24 hours in advance. We do ask for all visitors to follow our visitation rules with the guidance of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Please contact the social worker to set up visitation time.  

Rules are listed below: 

  • Visitations will be in designated indoor visitation area or in the resident’s room. 
  • Appointments will be made 24 hours in advance prior to visitation. Please ask for Keesha or Shelby to make your appointment. The facility’s schedule will be Tuesday through Friday, 9 am to 330pm. If you are needing to set up a visit outside of this schedule, please call for approval. 
  • Enter through the South Side door across from the cemetery. 
  • Please ensure you have a mask on when entering even if you are vaccinated. Once you get to the resident’s room, if the resident is vaccinated, then both the (vaccinated) visitor and resident can visit without masking. 
  • Upon arrival, please fill out the visitation log and screening form. 
  • Visitations will be limited to two visitors from the same household at a time per resident. 
  • Visitations can last up to 30 minutes. 
  • Screening of all who enter the facility for signs and symptoms of COVID19 including temperature checks and questions/observations of signs and symptoms or those who have had close contact with someone with COVID19 infection in the prior 14 days (regardless of visitor’s vaccination status). 
  • Hand Hygiene (use of alcohol-based hand rub is preferred) prior to visitation and at end of the visit.  
  • Residents and visitors must wear a face-covering during the duration of the visit.  Residents with active COVID-19 infection, either laboratory-confirmed or symptomatic, are not allowed to participate in outdoor visits.  
  • Social distancing at least 6 feet between persons. 
  • Notify all visitors upon arrival that if they develop symptoms of COVID19 within three days after visiting, they must immediately notify the facility.  
  • Visitors should be escorted to the designated indoor visitation area and stay in designated visiting locations. Visitors are not allowed to wander throughout the facility. 
  • Children are permitted to visit. Visitors with children must be able to manage them, and children must be able to wear a face mask during the entire visitation. Children under the age of 2 are not required to wear a mask per CDC guidelines.  
  • All visitors must sign in and provide contact information including name and phone number.  
  • Visitors are not required to be vaccinated or tested as a condition of visitation. But vaccinations are encouraged.  
  • If the facility is in outbreak status, the facility may cancel visitation.  

If fully vaccinated, residents can choose to have close contact (including touch) with their visitor while wearing a well-fitting cloth face mask or face covering and performing hand- hygiene before and after. Regardless, visitors should physically distance themselves from other residents and staff in the facility 

Thank you,
