Dear Families and Guests,

 

Last week, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced the loosening of restrictions to allow visitors at

long-term care facilities in Michigan.
 

This is great news and a giant leap forward to bring Marquette House back to a pre-pandemic level of normalcy. However, the relaxing of visitation restrictions can only resume with the safety measures we posted on our homepage.

We know how hard this has been for everyone. It’s been hard for our residents, hard for families, and hard for our management and staff. But with a decrease in Covid-19 positivity rates, the effectiveness of the vaccine, and our commitment to safety protocols, we hope to relax restrictions even more and reconnect families on a more frequent basis.

Ultimately, we are equally excited and share the feelings of happiness with our residents and guests. We also must stay the course and remain cautious until this Covid-19 pandemic is behind us. Please review the visitor guidelines posted and reserve your day and time. We hope to see you soon!

Sincerely yours,
Marquette House

Dear Marquette House Families,

 

We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to take precautionary measures to protect our residents and staff during these uncertain times.

The situation regarding COVID-19 has our full attention. While state and local organizations are taking the necessary steps and precautions, the health and safety of our residents and our employees who care for them remain our top priority.

 

At Marquette House, we screen our employees for signs and symptoms of any illness before each shift and perform daily deep cleanings with chemical disinfectants throughout the facility — which remains fully operational.

 

In order to stay completely focused on the care of our residents we have discontinued all non-essential supplier meetings and respectfully ask family members to reduce their number of visits to ensure the safety and well-being of our senior community.

 

Rest assured, we are complying with all Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommendations and are staying on top of all communications and daily reports.
