Salemtowne's Response to COVID-19

Salemtowne Retirement Community is committed to the health and safety of our residents and team members during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. Our Management and the COVID-19 Task Force comprised of Board Members, Team Members, and Residents are continually monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as following updates and recommendations from local, state, and national health officials. 

Outlined below are some of the necessary measures that have been implemented on our campus in response to the coronavirus. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this challenges together. We will use this page to keep you updated on our guidelines in response to COVID-19. We encourage all residents and team members to follow the Three Ws being provided by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. 

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • WEAR a cloth face covering when outside of your home or office
  • WAIT 6 feet apart and avoid close contact
  • WASH your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer

Visitor Restriction

At this time, Salemtowne is restricting general visitation to campus. Salemtowne has created a policy for families to safely visit their loved one in the Babcock Health Care Center.

Infection Control

We have elevated our sanitation standards, including frequent cleaning of common areas. We are asking residents and team members to continue to follow infection control guidelines by practicing social distancing and performing frequent handwashing.  We have three Certified Infection Control Preventionists in our health care center providing up-to-date infection control guidance for our community.

Dining operations

Salemtowne has reopened group dining venues for residents with limited seating capacity to follow appropriate social distancing guidelines for diners. Take-out is also available from dining venues for residents.  

Group Activities and Events

Some on-campus group exercise classes have resumed outdoors with appropriate social distancing. The pool is now open for resident use.

Off Campus essential trips

Independent living residents may now leave campus for essential trips, such as picking up groceries and prescriptions through drive-through services. Residents must wear masks and practice social distancing.

Our leadership team is monitoring conditions daily and will continue to respond in a timely manner to the challenges of this ever-changing health threat as they develop.

This situation is ever-changing, and we are in continual communication with the local Health Department, Wake Forest Baptist Health, and Novant. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and communicate any changes as they develop.
