Visitors will also be asked to physically distance from others. Some seats in our lobby area will be marked off to allow for appropriate spacing between visitors. Due to the limited seating, we are asking visitors to minimize the number of people they bring with them; however, we understand that some visitors require a caretaker to assist them.
