Dear Residents and Families,

This is a very important communication regarding visiting the community. Please take the time to read it carefully, and please be sure to forward this letter to other family members and friends who may not receive this information and want to visit.

I am pleased to share that Monday March 14th, visitors who have been fully vaccinated will be allowed to visit inside our Seacrest campus. Those who are unvaccinated or not completely vaccinated will still need to check in, and visits will occur outside.  We will need your full cooperation to ensure the visits go smoothly, especially since our protocols have changed.

Below are the specific visiting protocols for each of our buildings. Please read carefully.

Please read this important information carefully and don’t hesitate to contact your building director with any questions.

Again, we ask for your patience and cooperation as we check people in. We understand how hard this has been to be separated from your loved ones and hope you enjoy your visits. With everyone doing their part, I am confident everything will go well.

Best regards,
