Visitor registration
Cumberland Crossings, Carlisle, Pennsylvania 

Updated Aug. 31: Today, two of our residents tested positive. This brings our positive case totals up to two staff and two residents. We will continue isolation in our skilled nursing unit and weekly testing until at least September 15.

There will be no regular visitation in our skilled nursing care center. End-of-life and compassionate care visits for skilled nursing residents will continue. 

At this time, with the information we have, we are going to continue to allow personal care visitation as it is currently established. We will also continue to allow the Davis Dining Room to remain open and the independent living community rooms as well. However, we ask that ALL independent living visitors in the lower level of the nursing care center be vigilant with their mask-wearing as this is considered a part of our Skilled Nursing Center and is subject to CMS and PA DOH oversight. 
Please use the information at the bottom of this page to reserve visitation appointments

Family members should use this page to ...

1) Schedule a time to visit with a loved one in the nursing care center at Cumberland Crossings

3) Acknowledge your agreement with the policies and procedures governing the visit 


Whenever visits are allowed, please review the following important information before you schedule your visit. You will be required to acknowledge your agreement with our visitation policy on a form provided below. 

Please note as well that visitation availability or schedules are subject to change at any time, based on changes in COVID-19 guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Our state-required policies are found immediately below; please note that these policies were completed last year as a requirement from the government to schedule the first visits during the pandemic. The information relates to overall visitation policies and processes, with actual visitations available only as current conditions allow and in alignment with CDC and state protocol. The policies below were updated as of March 2021, reflecting new CDC guidance.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which has caused a worldwide pandemic. People infected with the virus, which is spread via droplet through the air by coughing or sneezing, through close personal contact or by touching an object or surface with the virus on it, can be asymptomatic or have mild to severe illness. Older people and those with underlying health conditions such as heart or lung disease or diabetes appear to be a higher risk of developing serious complications; some die as a result.  

Here are important guidelines for family members or other visitors. If you refuse to adhere to these guidelines, your visit may be shortened or canceled. 

  • Do not visit if you are sick or exhibiting symptoms of an illness.
  • Follow the guidelines set forth including seating arrangements and screening process.
  • Sanitize/wash your hands at the beginning and end of your visit as well as during the visit if they become soiled or contaminated.
  • Wear a mask during the entire visit; your mask must cover your nose and mouth. Please bring mask(s) to your visit.
  • Residents must also wear masks. 
  • We encourage you to maintain at least six feet physical-distancing.
  • Cover any coughs and sneezes. Use tissues and discard in the trash, then wash hands immediately after use.
  • Do not walk through any part of the health care center; visitors must remain in designated visitation areas.
  • Do not bring pets to the visit unless they are designated as a therapy pet and appropriate documentation is provided.
  • Directly supervise any youth visitor (see linked reopening plan for information on ages).
  • Please allow staff members time to properly disinfect contact surfaces to avoid cross-contamination.
