Thursday, December 8th Update

Dear Residents and Family Members,

Ongoing resident testing was completed last evening, and this morning did reveal 7 new cases of COVID among our resident population. That brings the total COVID positive in-house to 22 and Influenza to 2. We have no staff positive currently. I truly cannot stress enough how important proper infection control practices while in the facility are to the safety of all residents, employees, and visitors. A slight change to the visitation policy is being put into place as of today, a negative test will be required daily even if timing is less than 24 hours. Test kits will be available 7 days a week during this outbreak. Please refrain from visiting if you are not feeling well or have been exposed on the outside. Please try to limit visitation and out on pass visits as much as possible to help us control this outbreak.  This variant seems to spread rapidly. All positive residents are stable and doing well. Facetime calls can be set up with the recreation department Ext 423 to limit the amount of traffic and possible exposure to our residents.

Tuesday, December 6th Important Update

Dear Residents and Families,

I am sure many of you have heard on the news about the rapid spread of several viruses currently in Suffolk County, including Influenza, COVID 19, and RSV. We had one resident test positive for influenza, and 11 residents test positive for COVID. All the COVID-positive residents are on East Wing, and our COVID protocol is in effect. Symptoms are consisting of some low-grade fevers and cold symptoms. 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 cannot stop visitation, but please do not visit if you are not feeling well in any way.

Testing for visitors has not changed, a negative COVID test must be presented every 24 hours. We supply tests to visitors Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. I cannot stress the importance of mask wearing in the facility. I understand many of us are vaccinated and tested but remember, we can still test positive tomorrow and have exposed the most vulnerable population. I know it’s frustrating, and the rules at San Simeon are very strict, but it is for the safety of our residents, staff, and families. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. I will update you as changes come. No staff positives currently to report.

Thursday, October 20th COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Families,

Our last two COVID positive residents are now testing negative, therefore all residents have recovered and there are no current cases of COVID-19 in the building.  Again, we cannot stress enough how important mask wearing and social distancing are, especially while visiting loved ones at the facility. Likewise, if you are not feeling well or think you may have been exposed to someone with COVID, please refrain from visiting. It’s better to be safe than sorry. We continue with regular testing and stringent infection control practices to try to keep the virus out of our building.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Thursday, October 13th COVID-19 Update

Dear Residents and Families,

We had two additional residents test positive for COVID between yesterday and today, but three previous cases are now testing negative, so our current total of COVID positive residents in house is eight. Sadly, I must report that we had one of the residents with COVID pass away yesterday. Our sincere condolences to their loved ones. No new staff positives at this time to report. No new updates to our visitation policy at this time.

As always, we appreciate your cooperation. We will keep you informed of any changes.
