Scotia Village expects to begin relaxing some restrictions regarding visitation and is working to resume some of our pre-COVID operations. As we begin to relax these restrictions, we will continue to maintain stringent employee and visitor screenings. These precautions are in line with guidance from the NC Department of Health and Human Services, our local health department, other state and federal agencies. Our approach will be cautious and coordinated to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff
Because these changes will be made gradually and in multiple stages, please reach out to us for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The past six weeks have been unprecedented. Few of us could have predicted the circumstances in which we currently find ourselves. For me, the most daunting of circumstances is that there is not a concrete end date to the crisis. At Scotia Village residents and team are making the best of it. Our approach has been to monitor the facts and increase resident and team restrictions in a way that tries to balance safety and quality of life. The Leadership Team meets each morning to discuss how things are going and to deliberate on any procedural changes that may need to take place.
It has not been easy developing and implementing restrictions on what residents can do and where they can go. Through the process we have relied on guidance from the CDC, CMS, NCDHHS, NC Executive Orders, and Scotland County. We have also been in contact with the PHI team and our sister communities to discuss issues and hear about best practices.

I am incredibly proud of the Scotia Village Team and the residents. This situation is incredibly difficult, but everyone has pulled together to protect each other.
