As you may be aware, there are several confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Southold. While the risk of spread is very high, San Simeon staff have taken significant steps to ensure the safety of our residents. To date, we have no confirmed or suspected cases of Coronavirus among our resident population or our staff. Of course, this can change at any time, especially with a virus as contagious as this one appears to be.
San Simeon has acted aggressively to attempt to keep the virus out of our building including: restricting visitation (one of the first in the State to do so), reducing staff to only necessary clinical and support staff, suspension of outside activities and outings and restricting incoming entertainers; eliminating all but critical outside medical appointments; all staff and visitors are screened prior to entry to the building; resident activities and resident meals will be served on their respective units to limit potential cross contamination between units and staff assignments will also be as consistent as possible.
Because this virus seems to be especially dangerous to our particular population, we felt it appropriate to take these aggressive steps to mitigate any potential impact. Please be assured the safety and wellbeing of your loved one is our utmost concern at all times.
Please call the facility directly to answer any concerns you may have and/or to obtain the most up to date information on our status.
Thank you for your understanding and support during this very trying time.
