The Legacy implements no visitors

The Legacy implements no visitors

GILLETTE, WY – Campbell County Health has increased visiting restrictions and implemented no visitors, including family at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center due to current respiratory risks. Alternate communication methods are being used and can be arranged by calling 307-688-7000.

“We know that people are social creatures, and keeping our residents from the people they love and enjoy can be very stressful. Not permitting visitors is a choice we prefer to not have to make; however, keeping respiratory illnesses out of The Legacy is our care goal. We have increased our in-house activity schedule to encourage socialization and have multiple telecommunication tools we can use for family and friends,” says Jonni Belden, Vice President of Continuing Healthcare Services.

Visiting and screening remains the same for CCH Hospice and the Dialysis Unit at Campbell County Memorial Hospital.

To help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, please follow the following guidelines:

  • Avoid contact with sick people
  • Stay home when sick
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Cover nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Wash hands often and carefully. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
