Residents in Residential Care

As residents of long-term care facilities make plans for the holidays during the COVID-19 pandemic, their health and safety are a priority of the Pennsylvania Departments of Health, Human Services, and Aging. These departments strongly urge facility residents to not attend any holiday celebrations outside the facility in person because of the higher risk for severe COVID-19 infection for older adults, persons with certain medical conditions, and any person in a long-term care facility. We are asking people who still choose to attend an in-person holiday celebration to take this pledge (and follow through with the actions stated) for their own safety and to protect those around them.
