COVID-19 Response

Autumn Trace's Comprehensive Response to COVID-19

In March of 2020, under recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and local and state health authorities, Autumn Trace implemented a comprehensive plan for the safety of our residents, their families, and our staff.

All staff members are required to wear a mask at all times and our cleaning procedures have been increased to properly disinfect all surfaces. Employees are required to be screened each time they enter the building, and their temperatures are taken and recorded. Our staff members have also completed additional training to ensure they are well-versed on the symptoms of COVID-19, the procedures for if a resident or staff member is to test positive, and how to handle any quarantining which may need to take place.

Residents are encouraged to stay inside the building as much as possible to reduce any possible risk, but are allowed to leave the building. If a resident does choose to leave the building for an outing, they are required to wear a mask while out, and once again will wear a mask for two weeks upon return.

As the COVID-19 pandemic is continuously evolving, our safety guidelines and restrictions are as well, in order to maintain the highest level of safety for our communities. We continue to monitor and communicate with local health officials in each area of Indiana, and tailor our safety plans for each specific community.

Visitors are currently allowed, once they are properly screened at the door, at our locations with lower levels of community spread of COVID-19. At each of our locations, every visitor is screened before entering the building and documented, in order to allow for contact tracing if necessary. Masks are required and social distancing is encouraged, and all surfaces are disinfected once the visitor has left the building. Certain Autumn Trace locations may have to restrict visitors to strictly outside of the building and by appointment only. Furthermore, on the rare occasion a resident or staff members tests positive for COVID-19, visitation will be suspended for 14 days to allow for necessary isolation measures and enhanced cleaning procedures to take place.

If you have any questions regarding our COVID-19 response and specific measures at a certain location, please contact the Executive Director at your preferred location. Their contact information can be found under the Contact tab and under the Locations tab within our website.

At Autumn Trace, we have educated our residents, their families, and their physicians that we are more than willing to assist them to request a test for this virus in any way possible. Whether that is by scheduling an appointment for them or transporting them to a test site, we are proud to help residents largely remaining inside our communities, and having avoided any significant outbreaks amount our residents and staff, we have not experienced a need for mass testing to be performed.

We do encourage a test to be conducted for residents who seem to show symptoms of COVID-19 or for them to quarantine in their private suite for fourteen days or until symptoms cease. We strongly encourage new residents to submit to a test shortly before moving in but also offer the alternative of quarantining in their suite for fourteen days.
