Dear Family & Friends of Brother James Court,
We are writing to update you on our current status in regards to COVID-19. We are still practicing all of the CDC & IDPH guidelines to ensure the safety of the men. We are happy to say that these practices have helped keep us almost completely COVID-19 free. We are still voluntarily testing every week to ensure that we are all healthy and well.
It has come to our attention that another facility has made a public announcement that 3 intermediate care facilities in our area are closing. Brother James Court was one of the facilities named. We want to clarify and make corrections that Brother James Court is not closing its doors and has no intention of closing its doors. The miscommunication has been addressed and taken down off the site. With the heavy burden of Covid-19 and lack of Funding we see this happening lately with other facilities. We at Brother James Court will pray for the residents and staff at these facilities, that they find a new place to call their home and that their health care workers can find a new place of employment. We are all in this fight together and together we can keep Brother James Court as our men’s home for many years to come. We just wanted to inform our friends and families that Brother James Court is and will be open for our men.
As for Visitations, you can see our new guidelines on this link HERE . You will still need to make an appointment, at the very least, 24 hours ahead of time due to limited space for social distancing. This allows Brother James Court staff to properly prepare for your visitation. For overnight visits the resident will still have to quarantine for 14 days prior to going back to their rooms. As we want everyone to have a great Holiday season with their loved ones, we are advising no overnights, due to limited space for quarantine. Brother James Court knows how important it is to spend this valuable time with your loved one. We also need to keep our men safe from COVID as well. We pray everyone understand and has a wonderful Holiday season.
Thank you and have a blessed day,
The Staff of Brother James Court
