Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
What we’re doing to keep everyone safe.
The situation regarding COVID-19 is changing by the hour. Keeping the Ashley community informed for its health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. We will update this page as new information becomes available.
Updated March 30, 2020
We are constantly monitoring updates issued by the CDC, local health systems, and the county health department.
For the safety of staff, patients, and their families, all visitation is suspended until further notice. This includes:
- Patient visitation
- Participation in the Family Wellness Program
- Participation in the Children and Youth Program
- External 12-Step speakers
- External Sunday chapel attendance
In addition, we’ve canceled any in-person alumni and family activities for the duration of March. For events occurring on- or off-campus in April and beyond, we will update our community when we have more information.
COVID-19 symptoms are comparable to those of the flu. We are constantly monitoring patients and staff for cold or flu-like symptoms. If anyone in our care is diagnosed with the disease, we will rigorously follow all recommended guidelines.
Our Intake Department is screening potential patients for possible exposure and symptoms. Based on that heightened screening, we have delayed or denied admission to those who have screened positive so as not to jeopardize their well-being or the well-being of our other patients.
Finally, we are taking every step to reduce the environmental risk of the virus. Our staff is well-trained in infection-control and prevention practices as well as disinfection routines.
