On April 6, 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 988, which guarantees Florida families the fundamental right to visit their loved ones receiving care in hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and intermediate care facilities for the developmentally disabled. The Manor and Villa at Carpenters does not prohibit families from visiting their loved one.
The Manor and Villa Facial Coverings
The Manor and Villa at Carpenters does not require the universal use of facial coverings by persons to gain access to, entry upon, service from, or admission to the facility or otherwise discriminate against persons based on their refusal to wear a facial covering.
No Vaccine Mandate
No health care facility in Florida may require a vaccine as a condition to visitation and must allow for consensual physical contact between patients and their loved ones.
