Each Visiting Angels location is committed to providing quality home care services in a safe environment. Visiting Angels continues to remain informed regarding the changing state of the COVID-19 virus, the spread of the virus in our communities, and continues to implement infection control and protective measures in accordance with guidance from state and local health officials.
Visiting Angels has implemented a COVID-19 Prevention Program that addresses and responds to specific risks to clients, staff, and transmission levels in its communities.
