Independent Living Visitor Policy

Sept. 10, 2021 UPDATED POLICY – COVID-19 Protections – Immediately Effective 
Gary Blair, Superintendent, Texas Masonic Retirement Community

For now, visitation is discouraged at to the TMRC campus.

We are proud of our 100% vaccination rate among residents at TMRC.

However, the vaccine is NOT 100% effective. No vaccine can protect completely.

As of today, we have nine fully-vaccinated residents of our independent living areas with positive COVID-19 tests.  

We have zero COVID-19 cases  in the Nursing Care Area.

It’s time to fight!  We’ve done it before, and we can do it again if we all work together!


  • Visitors are discouraged from coming to the TMRC campus. 
  • Masks are required at all times for all residents and visitors.  Masks must be worn properly over the nose and mouth.
  • Visitors who fail to adhere to our policy will be barred from the campus until the pandemic is resolved.  
  • Activities are limited to those that can be performed while all participants are properly masked.
  • Residents and visitors should not gather in groups where masks are not or cannot be properly worn.
  • Meal service will be take-out only until further notice.  Masks must be correctly worn at all times while in the meal lines.


  • Be mindful of those around you — stay back at least 6 feet!
  • Insist that those around you wear their masks (properly), not just for your protection, but for theirs as well. 
  • Wash your hands often. 
  • Keep your distance.
  • Limit the number of people you interact with.
  • Protect yourselves if you are off campus! Not just at TMRC–but, everywhere you go!
