Friday, January 14th COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Families,

I would like to update you on our COVID-19 status. This week we had one new COVID-19 case among our residents bringing our current total of resident COVID-19 cases to two. We also had one new employee positive result.

Additionally, the Department of Health has provided some clarification regarding home testing for visitation purposes. We will now accept a photo of your home test cartridge or test strip showing a negative result, ALONG with a signed attestation by the visitor ensuring the validity of the test, to allow visitation in the building. We will ask you to sign this attestation when you come to visit.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding.

Tuesday, January 11th COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Families,

The Governor has implemented new requirements for visiting loved ones in nursing facilities effective Wednesday, January 12th. According to these rules, visitors must show proof of a negative COVID test dated within 24 hours of their visit in order to be admitted into the building.

If you wish to be tested at the facility for the purpose of visiting a resident, you must come to the front entrance on either Tuesdays or Thursdays between the hours of 6:30am and 9:00am or 2:00pm -3:30pm. No appointment is necessary.

COVID-19 Update:

I am pleased to report that all our previous six positive residents have recovered and are testing negative for COVID-19.

Unfortunately, we do have one new COVID positive resident and one new employee positive.

We continue to encourage social distancing, N95 mask wearing and enforcing strict infection control procedures to mitigate any possible spread.

Wishing all well.

Wednesday, January 5th COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Families,

COVID-19 testing performed today revealed an additional two positive cases among our residents.

In an effort to ensure the continued safety of our residents, due to the extremely high COVID positivity rates island wide, we are temporarily suspending out-on-pass privileges. In addition, we would also strongly encourage visitors to utilize Facetime and window visits rather than in person visitation. You may contact the Activities Department to schedule a window or Facetime visit at extension 423.

We thank you for your continued cooperation.

Tuesday, January 4th COVID-19 Update

I write to inform you of two new positive COVID-19 cases among our residents discovered during testing this week, in addition to two staff positives as well. As a result of the positive cases, we have increased the frequency of resident testing to every three days for the next fourteen days and employee testing continues weekly and as necessary. Visitors must wear N95 masks while visiting on resident units. Other visitation rules remain unchanged.

Please be reminded if you do not feel well or are exhibiting any type of cold symptoms, please refrain from visiting the facility. The risk of transmissibility is just too high to be worth the risk.

Thanks for your continued cooperation.

Monday, December 27th COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Families,

With the rapid spread of the Omicron variant and the very high COVID positivity rate we are experiencing specifically in Suffolk County, we had three employees routine COVID testing return back positive. As a result, we have implemented some enhanced infection control measures to ensure the continued safety of our residents. Specifically, we are requiring everyone who enters our building to wear an N95 facemask, as well as enforcing strict social distancing and limiting larger gatherings regardless of vaccination status.

We are proud to report that currently no residents are testing positive or experiencing any symptoms of COVID exposure.

Wishing you continued good health throughout this season.
