LIMESTONE, Tenn. (March 12, 2020) – In the interest of ensuring its residents are being cared for in a safe and healthy environment, The Crumley House Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center today announced policy adjustments amid COVID-19 Virus concerns.
“Here at The Crumley House, the health and well-being of our residents and employees is our top priority. Therefore, we are taking extra precautions over the coming weeks to guard against the spread of viral infections, primarily COVID-19,” stated Guynn Edwards, Crumley House Executive Director.
The facility will be closed to all visitors through Sunday, April 5. The Crumley House Adult Day Program also will be suspended through the same time period. Following this time period, Crumley House officials will evaluate the current status and make proper adjustments with regards to policy and schedule.
“We are following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in being proactive with these adjustments,” added Edwards. “Of course, we will make exceptions for emergency situations, and we ask that individuals understand we simply have the goal to limit traffic flow in our facility, as well as any potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
“The Crumley House has no COVID-19 cases in our facility, and we desire to take the necessary precautions to keep it that way,” Edwards continued. “Please know we understand communicating with loved ones is vastly important and we will assist our members in any manner to make sure that happens.”
The Crumley House also postponed its annual Joggin’ for the Noggin! 5K Run/Walk, which was slated for March 28. The new date will be shared via the venue’s web site and Facebook page once it is determined by event officials.
