10/8/2021

  • Residents testing positive with COVID-19 - None

  • Staff testing positive with COVID-19 - None

Memory Support Unit is out of the Yellow Zone so scheduled visitations and outdoor visitations can resume.


Due to an increase in the COVID Positivity rate in Kearney County and the counties surrounding Kearney County our facility has assessed the options to continue or discontinue visitations. Effective 9/2/2021 our facility has determined that we can continue the indoor scheduled visits 3 days a week as well as the scheduled outdoor visits 7 days a week, but will need to discontinue the community outing due to the increased positivity rate in Kearney County and surrounding area.


Kearney County and surrounding counties positivity rate is still high so Bethany Home will continue the with the above visitation schedule. The facility will evaluate weekly the positivity rate and add back community outing when the positivity rate decreased.


Thank you for your patience in this matter.​​
