Dear Family Member,

I wanted to update you following the letter I sent you yesterday indicating the discovery of a positive employee.  As a result of yesterday’s facility wide COVID testing, all resident results were negative.  One additional positive employee was identified.  The employee was a non-direct care employee and was sent home.

We have determined that visitation for the building can resume with the exception being our fourth floor.  Our fourth floor residents will need to be placed on isolation precautions for 14 days.  Congregate dining and congregate activity programs for the fourth floor have been suspended.  I hope that you understand, we are trying our best to work within the guidelines set forth by NY State Department of Health and the CDC to accommodate as many visitors as possible.

It is not this facility’s wish to limit visitation in anyway, but keep our residents safe while abiding by the regulations and guidelines we are being held to.  I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.

Sincerely,

Fortunato Scerbo III

Administrator
