LCS Residents FAQs

In our response to COVID-19, we continue to focus on the health and safety of our residents. Many of the enhanced internal processes and protocols implemented at the onset of this health crisis remain in better protect our communities. These include temporary visitor and delivery restrictions, screening for all employees and vendors, and wearing facemasks. To help protect their own health, LCS encourages all residents to receive the vaccine.

We continue to collaborate with, and receive guidance from, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, LCS Risk Management and Health Services Clinical teams.

As the vaccine is being administered around the globe, it is still important to practice safety precautions to prevent the spread of illness. Our communities continue to adhere to the CDC’s guidance and follow their recommendations:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that has a content of 60% alcohol
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick until you have been fever-free without the use of fever reducing medication for at least 72 hours
  • Cover your coughs or sneezes with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash; if tissues aren’t available, cough or sneeze into the inside of your elbow
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Practice social distancing
