Visitation Policy

SERV has restricted visitation at all facilities until further notice. For the time being, consumers are encouraged to communicate with loved ones via telephone and video services. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate our visitation restriction daily. While this may be upsetting for both families and those we care for, it is absolutely essential that we operate with extreme caution in an effort to contain the virus and prevent its spread.

The well-being of our staff and consumers is our highest priority. If you are feeling sick, or are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath), or have been in contact with someone known to have the disease, please notify your supervisor immediately. For information regarding the use of leave for situations related to COVID-19, please refer to the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development guidelines. You should also check your email regularly for updates from leadership.

Managing Anxiety & Stress

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have released guidelines and recommendations for managing anxiety and stress during the novel COVID-19 outbreak. You can view these guidelines by clicking the links above.

You can also text message HOME or SHARE to 741741 to reach a Crisis Counselor. These are difficult times—no doubt about that. But help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’re in this together. And coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.
