In light of the outbreak of novel coronavirus in Los Angeles County and elsewhere, and in consideration of the susceptibility of Ararat Home’s residents to severe complications of COVID-19, the Board and Administration have taken the proactive and precautionary step of limiting all visitations to Ararat Home facilities and campus until further notice.
In accordance to recommendations made by local and national health agencies, Ararat Home is strongly discouraging all routine, social, nonessential visits by residents’ family members and friends and is restricting all visits to campus by our volunteers and supporters. This policy of limiting/restricting visitor access to our facilities and our campus has been implemented out of an abundance of caution in an effort to protect our residents from possible exposure to the virus and from the possible spread of COVID-19 among our resident population.
As part of this measure to limit/restrict visitations, The Ararat-Eskijian Museum board has decided to cancel all upcoming events, until further notice.
We will notify our supporters when visitations and events are deemed safe to be resumed as normal on campus.
In the meantime, we appreciate our supporters’ understanding, patience and cooperation with Ararat Home’s concerted efforts to protect our residents, employees and community.
