Due to recent guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Traverse Care Center in Wheaton has restricted all visitors to the facility except for compassionate care, such as end-of-life situations. All visitors should call the site in advance to alert staff of their arrival. Those visiting the community to provide medically necessary care to residents are considered approved visitors. Those delivering supplies or equipment should work directly with the staff to arrange a designated location for delivery.
Even those with essential business who have been traveling, display cold or flu-like symptoms or have been diagnosed or in contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 should not visit the facility. Non-essential vendors should conduct business via phone or web conferencing until further notice.
