Proactive measures taken regarding COVID-19

(UPDATED 3.31.2021)

We’re here for you and your loved one! Our staff is working remotely. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, our offices are closed to the public.

Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care is taking proactive measures to reduce exposure of COVID-19 and has developed an organization-wide response and mitigation plan to reduce exposure of COVID-19.

Based on the recommendations of the Muskegon County Public Health Department, MDHHS and CDC, Harbor Hospice and Palliative care has developed a “social distancing plan” geared towards reducing person-to-person contact.

Like other Hospice organizations across the country, Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care will implement these measures while continuing to provide visits and core services to our at-risk population in our five county service area.

The practice will be implemented from March 16, 2020 until further notice.

Please review the following:

  • Exterior doors will be locked at all times
  • To protect our patients we are unfortunately limiting visitors in the building to 2 visitors in a 24 hour period.
  • All visitors must pass a temperature and symptom screening upon entry and wear a mask at all times. Masks are provided upon entry.
  • If able, efforts to provide phone calls and other electronic forms of communication will be provided.
