Testing continues state-wide for all employees working in assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. Based on this week's testing at Ingersoll Place, there are no new cases of COVID-19 to report. Also, there are no residents or employees currently in quarantine.
With regard to visitation, the NYS Department of Health has been responding to questions from facilities across the state that have requested additional information and/or clarification of the regulations. These questions and answers will be helpful in ensuring compliance with state regulations and consistency once the visitation process begins rolling out. We hope to have a policy that's been reviewed and approved and a start-date announcement to share with you next week.
In the meantime, residents are enjoying outdoor time, one-on-one visits with Activities staff and birthday celebrations with lots of fanfare, TLC from the staff and, of course, cake.
We wish everyone a safe and pleasant weekend.
Please continue to direct non-urgent questions and concerns to Ceil Mack, 518-370-4419, ext. 303.
