Coronavirus updates

Bethany Life is committed to protecting the health of our residents, tenants, members and staff. We will use this page along with Facebook to keep you informed. We appreciate your continued support and prayers.

This document will be updated as needed. 



 At The Households of Bethany we have zero staff members and zero residents that have tested positive for COVID-19. 

Family Visit Information

We have held true to our mission of hope and compassion to see this long journey finally shift back to life pre-pandemic.

We are pleased to inform you that Covid-19 guidelines have been updated and our policies have been changed to reflect these:
1. Visiting should be deferred if you have been exposed, have symptoms* or have tested positive for Covid-19. If you must visit, we ask that you wear a mask at all times and notify the LifeBridge
nurse (515-815-1406) upon arrival.
2. Masks will no longer be required for visitors who are symptom-free when the Story County transmission rate is SUBSTANTIAL or below. If the rate is HIGH, masks will be required. This will be monitored weekly and there will be a sign on the front door letting you know.
3. Screening before entering the building is no longer required.

Frequently Asked Questions

An outbreak is when we have one confirmed resident case of COVID-19. 

If you would like to set-up a Zoom call with your loved one please contact our Life Enrichment department at 515-203-1160 or 



Masks will no longer be required for staff who are symptom-free when the Story County transmission rate is SUBSTANTIAL or below. If the rate is HIGH, masks will be required. If there is a COVID positive staff or resident masks will be required for all staff.  This will be monitored weekly and there will be a sign on the front door letting you know. If a staff member is not fully vaccinated they are required to wear a mask at all times. 

Residents who had direct contact with the staff member are individually notified as well as their primary contacts.

An email or text will be sent out to family members. We understand a recorded call is not as personal but having the nurses/staff on the floor taking care of the residents was our first priority. If a resident was in direct contact or having symptoms a personal call is made.  

Bethany Life is providing communications on both our website and social media pages to inform the public of changes to visiting guidelines and operations. Visit us on Facebook for the most recent COVID-19 communications. 

We are having in-person tours at The Households of Bethany. We are taking admissions so please call Morgan at 515.509.6269 for additional information regarding our communities.
