We received notification today that an employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual had been vaccinated and is displaying mild symptoms at this time. The employee has been removed from the schedule for the required quarantine period.
We are staying in very close communication with local and state health officials to ensure we are taking all the appropriate steps. We are implementing our outbreak procedures and all appropriate safety measures. Resident safety is our top priority and we are doing everything we can to prevent any spread. Operations of the facility continue unimpacted.
We are required by state regulation to limit visitation to our facility. We encourage you to call us at (315) 497-0440 and ask for our nursing department for updates on the status of your loved one or to schedule an outdoor visit. Please understand that due to the nature of this virus and the numerous steps involved in preventing its spread, much time is spent on resident care and appropriate infection control practices. However, we will do our very best to answer your calls as they come in and/or to return your calls promptly.
More than 90% our residents are vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus and all are doing well.
We will continue to provide you with updates as they become available.
