Updated Visitation Guidelines

Dear Resident/Family Members,

Unfortunately there is an additional update to our recent visitation update.  While the 14 day requirement does begin tomorrow, allowing visitation for us as of October 1st, visitors must now present proof of a negative COVID test within the immediate 7 days prior to your visit.  As we read the regulation, this proof of testing would be necessary every time you visit.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Revised DOH Visitation Requirements

Dear Resident/Family Member,

NYS Department of Health has revised their guidance regarding family visitation with residents. Instead of requiring 28 days from the last employee or resident positive test result, we now must wait only 14 days. This change goes into effect on September 17th. So for us, assuming there are no new positive test results between now and then, we can resume visitation on October 1st (rather than 10/7). Closer to that time, you may call to schedule visitation with Judy following the same procedures we had previously set up.

Looking forward to seeing you back visiting your loved ones.
