During weekly surveillance testing for Skilled Nursing team members, we had 1 team member test positive for COVID-19. Later during surveillance testing and immediate outbreak testing of residents, it was learned that 1 additional team member and 2 residents have also tested positive. The two residents were immediately relocated to our Covid-19 red zone unit and the team members have been sent home to quarantine. We are continuing to conduct outbreak testing for team members and residents.

Per CMS and DOH guidelines, indoor and outdoor visitation throughout the skilled nursing facility must be put on hold pending further outbreak testing. Window visits will be permitted and can be scheduled through Bonnie Balentine, Activities Director (716) 786-5715.

Please continue to look for further information about the ability to resume visitation in both Skilled Nursing and Personal Care.
