UPDATED TO ADD:

The Legacy implements no visitors

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.
