Bethany Home Association has received approval to implement a Phased Reopening Plan
. The plan was created to adhere to guidelines published by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) and under guidance of the McPherson County Health Department (MCHD). Our progress through this plan will be contingent on the public health in McPherson County and subject to continuing guidance provided by MCHD. To help us progress toward reopening, I ask that you advocate for and participate in these basic precautions which have proven to reduce disease transmission: regularly practice hand hygiene, wear a cloth face mask when in public settings, avoid large group gatherings, and practice 6’ social distancing from others. While we wish we could provide specific dates on this plan, our progress and ability to reopen is entirely dependent on the health status of our surrounding community!
The initial phases of reopening contain very gradual loosening of the existing restrictions required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and KDADS. Please bear with us as we make plans and adjust to these new requirements. We are rapidly working to create and construct a safe visitation area that will meet KDHE and KDADS standards and provide an enjoyable experience for residents and families.
