In-Person Visitation Opened Up to All Areas of Otterbein

Otterbein resident has an in-person visitation.

The re-opening of in-person visitation may be the best “yes” at Otterbein Cridersville yet! At last, residents are catching up face-to-face with their friends and loved ones they haven’t seen in months. There have certainly been some heartwarming reunions taking place in recent weeks.

How to Visit a Resident

All visitors are welcome and will be screened upon entry. If you have chosen not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at this time, we will perform a rapid COVID-19 test upon entry to ensure the utmost safety of our residents.

We ask all visitors to enter at our Falling Waters Lounge (AL-2) in the main campus building. We are excited to welcome everyone back!
