WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

The emergence of new COVID-19 variants teamed with the lapse of time from your initial receipt of the vaccine mean that booster doses are required to continue providing a proper level of protection against infection with COVID-19. It is recommended that you now receive not only a full series, but booster doses. Per Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) travel guidelines, you must isolate at home if you travel to their list of places of concern or if you have participated in certain activities. This will apply if you are either (1) unvaccinated or (2) if you’re vaccinated but haven’t received a booster injection in the appropriate window of time.

Moundridge Manor publishes the latest release of Travel & Exposure-Related Isolation / Quarantine guidelines information below.

In a January 5 article, the New York Times details this move by the CDC and what it means for you. In this writing, CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund explains: “The technical definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ — two doses of an mRNA vaccine or one dose of the J & J vaccine — has not changed,” Nordlund said in a statement. “Individuals are considered fully vaccinated once they have received their primary series.”

  • She added that the agency recommends that people “stay ‘up to date’ by receiving any additional doses they are eligible for, according to C.D.C.’s recommendations, to ensure they have optimal protection.”

Did you know you can now let yourself in for a visit?

We’re excited to announce the expansion of our RapidPass program. All visitors will now be able to pre-screen for their visit to Moundridge Manor online before their visit. This will be valid for 8 hours from completion. If you don’t pre-screen, you’ll still be able to screen on arrival– this is just a way for you to save time and hassle and avoid creating bottlenecks at the entrance.
