COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Family Members,

As you are aware, COVID cases are rampant in the community and unfortunately we have to report our first cases of the virus among our resident population. During routine testing, six residents (three sets of roommates) on one unit tested positive. All of the affected residents and family members have been informed. Employee testing has reveals several additional positives as well.

We have been testing residents every three days (more frequently as necessary) which enabled us to catch these new cases quickly. We will continue frequent testing going forward. Additionally, employee testing is now twice weekly. All units are undergoing additional sanitation and cycle cleaning. Staff have been in-serviced to ensure full understanding of new COVID-19 infection control protocols.

We have been fortunate to have been COVID free for the past ten months (to the day!). The medical world has come a long way in that time to provide best practices in dealing with COVID-19 and we can benefit from that knowledge to ensure we contain the virus as best as possible and provide the proper care to the residents who are affected.

Rest assured we are aggressively addressing this new phase of the pandemic for the staff and residents at San Simeon. I have full confidence in our team as we meet this challenge head on.

Visitation and Vaccination Updates

Dear Residents and Family Members,

I am very pleased to report that ongoing resident testing per NYS Department of Health requirements has turned up no positive cases of COVID-19. Our employee weekly testing did however result in one additional positive result requiring us to continue the ban on outside visitation for an additional two weeks.

COVID vaccination administration was performed on Monday, January 4th and I am very proud to report that 97% of our resident population received the first dose of the vaccine! Additionally, thirty six percent of our employees elected to receive the vaccine during this first vaccine clinic visit, as well. No residents suffered any adverse reactions to the vaccine and no employees reported any issues or called out sick subsequent to being vaccinated.

There will be a second vaccine clinic day on January 25th to administer second doses to all who received their first dose this past Monday, and also administer first doses to any new admissions and any additional staff that would like to be vaccinated. We expect employee vaccination rates to increase significantly during this second clinic date.

Visitation Suspension Update

Dear Residents and Families,

I am pleased to report that resident testing has turned up no positive cases among the resident population. We will continue to test residents every three days per requirements until the 14 day period has expired. This is due to the three positive COVID test results we received among our employees last week.

Unfortunately, weekly employee testing this week revealed another employee positive, so the earliest date for reopening to visitation has to be pushed back until no earlier than January 14th. Resident testing every three days also must be continued through the new 14 day period per requirement.

We will continue to keep you informed as we go forward.

COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Residents and Family Members,

We apologize for any confusion but we were just informed by CVS Pharmacy, the entity who will be administering the COVID-19 vaccine to our residents and staff, have rescheduled the vaccination date at San Simeon. Unfortunately they have moved our vaccination dates to January 4th and 25th (from previously scheduled December 30 and January 20).

As this is a two shot vaccine, residents and some staff will be vaccinated on January 4th and receive their second dose on January 25th. Also on the 25th, anyone who did not receive their first dose on the 4th may have their first dose administered on the 25th. There will be a third clinic date (to be determined but likely on or around February 15th) to provide second doses to those who received their first dose on January 25th.

The consent you provided earlier is sufficient and there is no need for any additional action on your part. We merely are informing you of the date change. We expect there will be no further rescheduling of the vaccination process however this is not in our control.
