Due to having no positive cases of COVID-19 among the Riverview Healthcare Campus staff for over 14 days, as well as the Ottawa County “positivity rating” coming down, Administrator Kendra German opened indoor visitation for residents’ guests last week.
Families are currently being notified and information is being sent to residents and their representatives.
Riverview Healthcare will also allow open dining again in the Ottawa Dining Room. Large group activities will also be held in its Multipurpose Room.
Guests must continue precautions put in place as the facility does have some residents who have chosen not to be vaccinated, or were unable due to the timing of their admission.
More information is available on the newly-designed webpage at www.riverviewhealthcare.com.
Ottawa County Health Department (OCHD) officials report they know that those over the age of 65 are now eligible for the vaccine, according to Ohio’s Phase 1B plan. The OCHD, however, is still concentrating its efforts on the older population.
This week officials were planning on vaccinating those that are approximately 79 years and above. This is due to the limited doses that the OCHD has received in the county, as well as the large response of those that have registered.
As of last Friday, Feb. 5, the OCHD had received and distributed 2,050 doses of vaccine. Officials are asking county residents to be patient as they work through their registration list as quickly as the doses allow.
If anyone questions whether they are registered, email email@example.com.
