Dear St. Jane de Chantal residents, family members, and caregivers,

By now you have heard about the current outbreak of COVID-19, commonly known as Coronavirus. In consultation with other health care providers in the Lincoln and Omaha areas as well as local and federal government agencies, we have been monitoring the situation and making adjustments to our normal operations to minimize the spread of disease. We appreciate your patience as these adjustments been implemented and want to reiterate that the care and safety of our residents is, and will always be, our top priority.

There have been no confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 at St. Jane de Chantal. In an abundance of caution, we will be implementing changes to our visitation policy to protect our vulnerable resident population.

Beginning March 13, 2020, we will be restricting all visitor access to St. Jane de Chantal. All non-essential visitors to St. Jane de Chantal will be asked to refrain from visiting.

Additional precautions will also be in place, including:

--Residents will only leave our facility for essential medical appointments.
--Group activities and gatherings will not be held until further notice.
--Signage will be posted on doors leading to St. Jane de Chantal to communicate new policies.

As an organization with the core value of hospitality, we pride ourselves on being a welcoming place for all who come through our doors. It will be uncomfortable to limit access to our facility, but it’s the right thing to do at this time. Rest assured that resident care will not be interrupted, including all scheduled therapies.

We have been in contact with our families and will continue to make ourselves available for any questions or concerns you may have. You are welcome to reach out to Melody Gagner, Administrator Long Term Care Services during regular business hours at (402) 413-3606 or after business hours at (402) 980-6998.
