An Update About Coronavirus (COVID-19) from Cumberland Heights

Please see important message from our President & CEO

To Cumberland Heights’ Alumni, Board Members and Friends:

We want to share with you that Cumberland Heights is taking preventative measures to ensure the health and safety of our patients, staff, alumni and community. Your well-being is our top priority. At this time, Cumberland Heights is unaffected by COVID-19. We are taking precautions to minimize exposure risk and are adhering to guidelines provided by the CDC including:

  • Heightened screening process for all potential admissions according to CDC guidelines.
  • Additional screening for visitors and limiting the number of guests.
  • Increasing cleaning and disinfecting of equipment and frequently-touched surfaces such as door handles, railings and counter tops.
  • Sharing COVID-19 prevention information to all employees and instructing staff to stay home if they are ill.

Out of an abundance of caution, we will begin temporarily suspending large group gatherings at our River Road campus including Aftercare meetings, Crossover meetings, the Monday Al-Anon meeting, Sunday chapel services and Sunday visitor lunch effective as of today, March 12. We regret this step is necessary, but public health considerations must put patient safety ahead of all other factors. We will continue to assess this situation and will provide updates accordingly.

Thank you,

Jay Crosson
