COVID-19 FAQ’s and General Precautions

Will contact tracing be completed or conducted if a resident or employee tests positive for COVID at Beacon Hill?

Beacon Hill will follow contact tracing recommendations from the Kent County Health Department. This means that Kent County Health Department will do all external tracing. Beacon Hill will complete internal contact tracing and have a high level of surveillance over the full continuum.

Will Beacon Hill disclose the name(s) of any individuals that have a positive test result?

No, to disclose the name of this individual would violate HIPPA restrictions protecting an individual’s privacy.

What do I do if I feel unwell?

Please stay in your apartment, and avoid contact with other residents until you feel better. Fees for meal delivery will be waived during this time. If you must go out, please exercise caution in common areas. If you start to feel worse, contact our front desk. Our staff will arrange for you to speak with a physician.
