I am very happy to report that it has been over 3 months without any new COVID positive residents however we have been notified that one of our consultants has tested positive. Please rest assured that we are taking all appropriate precautions in ensuring the continued safety of our residents and the rest of our staff. In following with NYSDOH guidelines we are also suspending visitation pending the results of resident testing. We will update you when visitation reopens. In the mean while we encouraged you connect with your loved ones through video chat, calling, texting, or other social media formats. Please contact the activity department to arrange such services. You may also contact your Social Worker at 718-461-5000 for any emotional support you may require or to answer questions you have about your loved one.
I would also like to remind you that our COVID-19 hotline phone number (718-321-1984) is still active and available to call should you wish. In compliance with the current guidance from the New York State Department of Health, this hotline will be updated within 24 hours regarding any new developments, positive or negative (resolved cases, new cases or virus related deaths ), that take place in the facility. The hotline will also be updated if visitation is paused due to an increase in positive cases.
Again, I thank you for your support of our Resident’s and staff during this time. I also thank you for your patience while we all navigate the fluid COVID-19 Pandemic.
