In order to maintain transparency with our resident and patient families in regard to COVID-19, we will be sending census updates as they occur on our current COVID-19 wing. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email us.
COVID-19 Update: 2/22/2021
Please read and review the following:
We have received notification that we have five (5) additional COVID-19 positive employees; which now brings the total number of employee positive cases to 63 since the start of the pandemic. These employees have been COVID-19 testing weekly as per the Executive Order from the Governor and tested negative prior to this positive test. These employees have followed guidelines by wearing proper PPE during work hours, will be out of work for a minimum of 14 days and will be required to test negative for COVID-19 prior to returning to work.
At this point in time, we have no new COVID-19 positive residents. Our current total number of in-house COVID+ residents is three (3), all of which are residing on our COVID unit.
I know many of you have questions about the information that the Governor released last Friday during his press conference in regard to visitation and that facilities will be rapid testing family members. At this point in time, we have NO guidance from the Department of Health on this information and what the facility’s obligation will be in regard to this. In addition, please remember that our 14-day clock has just reset again with these current positive cases; therefore, we have to meet the requirement of 14-days COVID free before visitation can occur. I would highly encourage all of you to call the Department of Health directly for more information on nursing home visitation at (518) 474-7354.
We will keep you informed as we have further updates. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at .
As always, thank you for your support and patience. Stay safe!
VP of Long Term Care Services
