Dear Bridgewell family members and guardians,
As the positivity rate and the number of COVID-19 cases continues to decline in the state of Massachusetts, Bridgewell has decided to update its residential visitation guidelines to include indoor on-site, off-site and overnight visits. In addition, there will no longer be any restrictions regarding cities or towns being in a red zone.
We make this decision knowing that all of you will still adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) with regards to visitation and safety precautions.
Indoor On-Site Visitation
Bridgewell’s policy remains the same:
Off-Site Visits and Overnights
We agree that visitation is vital to the well-being of all the people we serve. We must rely on you to continue to practice social distancing, wear masks and practice good hand hygiene.
We look forward to scheduling your visits and seeing you at the residential programs.
Thank you for your patience and support over the past year as we navigate through this pandemic.
Elaine M. White
Chief Operating Officer
