Catholic Charities St. Anne Residence restricts visitors due to COVID-19

Posted on March 18, 2020

BEARDSTOWN – The St. Anne Residence in Beardstown is placing restrictions on visitors to the facility effective immediately for the health and safety of its residents. Residents living in the facility are 62-years and older, and therefore are at a higher susceptibility of contracting COVID-19. The following restrictions are effective immediately:

• No one, other than a current tenant, may enter the building without first being screened by management or other person designated by management with the exception of first responders.

• Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 and until further notice, all visitors, including family members, can be screened Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

• No visitors under the age of 18 will be allowed in the building until further notice.

• If an individual fails the screening they will not be allowed in the building for a minimum of 14 days. They would be able to be re-screened after that time.

• Deliveries will need to be picked up in the vestibule by each tenant.

"We will continue our mission to treat everyone with dignity and respect and to serve those in need during these difficult circumstances. We pray your families are staying healthy and safe. Thank you for your patience during this uncertain time. We will get through this, together," said Steven Roach, Executive Director for Catholic Charities, Diocese of Springfield in Illinois.
