The Oaks of Louisiana has now received the second Moderna vaccine and is experiencing the longest period without a positive COVID-19 test among staff and residents since the pandemic began. With Louisiana Department of Health visitation restrictions further relaxed on Friday, we are excited to be able to bring loved ones back into Health Center at Live Oak to visit with residents who have endured a year of isolation and uncertainty and complete disruption of their lives. Earlier in the week, communal dining and activities were resumed at the Health Center.

It is important to remember, though, that we have gotten to this point by following suggested protocols and infection control procedures. It is still necessary to wear a mask over the nose and mouth, practice social distancing and limiting contact. Outdoor visitations, the safest way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, are preferred and should be conducted whenever possible.

Here’s the latest on Health Center visitation:

• Social distancing of at least 6 feet is required at all times outside resident rooms. Limited physical contact is permitted for FULLY VACCINATED residents.

• Please practice good hand washing and mask wearing to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at the Health Center.

Savannah visitation guidelines remain as follows:

The Oaks of Louisiana will continue to practice all protocols in place prior to and during the pandemic.

Should circumstances warrant, we will resume tighter restrictions as needed.
