  • As of 8/1/2022 we currently have 0 residents and 0 staff members with active COVID-19 positive cases.  
Per the Governor and the NYS DOH you are required to be COVID-19 swabbed within 24 hours of your visit. 
You may choose on of the following options:  
1. Bring proof (see below for acceptable proof) of your negative test results that were collected within 24 hours (rapid test) or within 48 hours (PCR test).
     - Acceptable proof would be: 
       a. Display a photo of test cartridge of strip to nursing home (rapid test)
       b. Documentation from testing site (PCR test)
2. If able to swab yourself you will be provided with a swab kit (rapid test) and will be asked to go to your car to swab yourself and bring in the test once completed (usually within 15 minutes). If test results are positive you can NOT enter the building and should return home. 
3. The nursing home will send several rapid test kits home with regular visitors for use prior to visiting. We urge visitors to come to the facility prior to visiting to pick up a kit to be used at home immediately prior to their visit. 
**Positive results and infection within prior 90 days:
If a visitor tests positive, they will be excluded until they have met the CDC criteria for discontinuing isolation for the general public AND present a negative test. 
If a visitor has had COVID in the past 90 days they must still be tested. If they test positive, they will be excluded from visiting. 
**Exempt from proof of negative test:
Compassionate care visits (end of life) and EMS personnel do NOT require a negative COVID test to enter the building. 
If you do not abide by the facility policy and the mandatory swabbing you will NOT be allowed into the facility. 
Thank you for your cooperation!
