Dear Family Member,

I hope you all had a nice Easter weekend. As we continue with our weekly employee COVID testing, I am happy to report that we have had no new positive cases. I want to let you know how happy we are to be welcoming you back to visit in-person. I really enjoy being able to speak to you in face to face instead through an email or letter.

In the past few weeks, NY State was distributing vaccine though local health departments. We were able to obtain vaccine from Madison County and vaccinate residents and employees who did not receive their vaccine earlier in the year when Walgreen’s was distributing to nursing homes. Last week we were able to administer more vaccinations for our residents and employees. Currently, 90% of our residents have been vaccinated.

I’d like to remind you that in-person visits require a pre-scheduled visit. We will continue to require a health screening, face mask, and use of hand sanitizer. Although many visitors have been vaccinated as well as our residents, we are still required to maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet.

Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to seeing you.

Sincerely,

Fortunato Scerbo III
