In an effort to address questions and concerns about the Coronavirus and its potential impact at A.G. Rhodes, this webpage will be updated to provide information to family members, volunteers, visitors and others. This is an evolving situation that we will closely monitor while we make every effort to ensure the safety of those we serve.
Friday, June 5, 2020:
As more sectors begin to reopen throughout our state, we know there are many questions about the re-opening of long-term care facilities like A.G. Rhodes. On May 28, Governor Kemp extended the Public Health State of Emergency in Georgia to July 12, and this extension applies to the provisions currently in place to protect the medically fragile and senior population. In accordance with the Governor’s order, we will continue to restrict all non-essential visitors, including family members, until at least July 12. We will closely follow further guidance, recommendations and requirements issued by the Governor and/or other officials as we near that date.
In the interest of transparency and public safety we will provide updates as appropriate while following HIPAA regulations and protecting our residents’ and staff’s right to privacy.

Provisions in the current Public Health State of Emergency in Georgia include restriction of all non-essential visitors, including family members, to long-term care facilities such as A.G. Rhodes. Uncertainties remain about when we can reopen to allow visitors, and we will closely follow guidance, recommendations and requirements issued by the Governor and/or other officials. We will continue to communicate with our families and others as we know more.
