Walker Methodist


MVV Default 111x108


We want you to be assured that Walker Methodist will continue to be transparent about all confirmed cases of COVID-19 that appear in any of our communities by sharing with the community’s residents, responsible party family members, and team members. We will be as transparent as possible and will work diligently to stop the spread of the virus throughout the community. 

Walker Methodist is currently in the process of reopening various parts of each community, and we are working to make outdoor visits happen as soon as possible. At this time, friends, family, and all other visitors may not enter a community, and exceptions are made for end-of-life visitation and for designated, essential care givers. Only essential vendors, providers, and contractors are allowed to enter, but they must be screened before entering. All employees are screened for symptoms and must have their temperature checked before entering the community. Employees must wear protective masks. There are no group activities and the dental clinic is closed.

This is not a full list of restrictions, and you can find more information in our FAQs.
