July 23, 2020


As you all know, COVID-19 cases are increasing in surrounding counties and nursing homes.  To help protect the Cortland residents, we are making several changes to our Phase Yellow visitation policy effective Monday, July 27th.

  • New visitation days will be Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.

  • The new times will be at 9 am, 10 am, 2 pm, 3 pm, 4 pm, and 5 pm

  • Visitation is still only on the hour and for 45 minutes to give time to clean between visits.

  • Appointments may be made up until the day before the scheduled visit. Appointments can no longer be made the same day of the requested visit.

  • Any appointments scheduled by you or your family before this phone call today will be honored for the remainder of this week.

  • We ask and encourage you NOT to bring in food or items for your loved one, but if you feel you need to, the items must be in a container that can be disinfected.  The items will be given to the screener when you check-in.  The screener will disinfect them and give them to your loved one after your visit.

  • At this time, you still cannot bring or send live flowers or plants.  Please let others know who may be visiting your loved one about our restrictions.


  • When visiting your loved one, you MUST wear your mask correctly, practice social distancing, and refrain from touching or hugging your resident.

  • Masks MUST be worn, even when visiting outside. 

  • Please remember, if positive cases in our county increase or Cortland were to have a positive case, visitation would be restricted immediately.

  • Please do not schedule immediately following your travel to a “hot spot” area.

We realize that the restrictions are burdensome when you want to express your love and concern for your family member, but please remember the restrictions help minimize their risk.  You are in a position to help keep your loved ones healthy and safe, and we need your help and support to continue to do this.

Continued visitation is contingent upon compliance with these guidelines.

In conjunction with the Tucker County Health Department, Preston Taylor Community Health Center continues to offer free COVID testing on our Campus every Monday from 8 am to 11 am if you would like to test before your visit.  It is held on the Cortland Campus in the former EMS building.  There are signs to direct you to that location. There is no need to get out of your car; this is a drive-through testing site.  Please remember to bring your insurance card and driver’s license. 

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to our Resident Care Coordinators by calling 304-463-4181.  They welcome your calls and questions.  Families with residents on Daybreak (B Wing) and D Wing should contact Dana Quattro at extension 216. Melissa Harr is the family contact for residents on Wings A, C, and Blackwater at extension 288.


We appreciate your patience and support!
