Granville Health System to Re-Open Harold Sherman Adult Day Center in October

September 29, 2020

Granville Health System (GHS) announced that the Harold Sherman Adult Day Center (HSADC) will reopen October 5, 2020. HSADC had temporarily closed its doors in March due to safety concerns associated with COVID-19. 

“The health and safety of the participants and staff remain our first priority,” said CEO John F. Snow. “Since opening in 1998, this program has played a vital role in the lives of participants in Granville County and surrounding communities. The Program Director and our Executive Leadership team have been working diligently to develop a plan that will allow HSADC to safely re-open.”  

All revisions to the program policies are in accordance with guidelines provided by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). To adhere to those guidelines, the program will resume operations with reduced capacity, conduct mandatory health screenings for all participants and staff before entering the facility, restrict visitation, follow enhanced guidelines for the use of personal protective equipment and infection prevention protocols, and other program changes implemented to protect participants and staff.

“HSADC will continue to work closely with the local public health officials, NCDHHS, and continue to monitor local developments.” said HSADC Program Director Gail Barnes-Hall. “Every decision we make is in the best interest of our participants and staff.  With the appropriate safety measures in place, we look forward to seeing our participants.”
