As always, we at The Esquiline put the health and safety of our residents and staff first. During this evolving health situation, we continue to adapt and respond with measures to ensure the welfare of those on our campus.
Visitor Policy Updates Effective July 7, 2020
The Dammert Care Center is now open for outdoor visits with residents and must be scheduled ahead of time by appointment only. Appointments to visit a resident outdoors are available Monday through Friday and can be made by calling 618-394-6262. Those who wish to visit Dammert on Saturday or Sunday can still enjoy “window visits” with a resident on these days.
**Please note that social distancing is still required with outdoor visits, including all parties wearing masks and staying 6 feet away from each other.
July 7, 2020 COVID-19 Esquiline Update
The Esquiline is currently implementing ongoing testing of residents and staff in our Dammert Skilled Care Center in order to complete a 28 day cycle of testing in accordance with guidelines given by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control.
We are happy to report that The Dammert Care Center has completed its second round of mass testing, and it has been confirmed by St. Clair County that all tests results have been negative results for
COVID-19. Additionally, specimens from the next round of testing were delivered to St. Clair County this week. Assuming all tests are returned with a negative result, an additional round of tests will be administered to complete the testing cycle. We will continue to post any updates related to this ongoing testing.
