THEREFORE, WE ARE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTING THAT ALL VISITORS TEST FOR COVID BEFORE VISITING.

Continue to physically distance from facility personnel and other patients/residents/visitors that are not directly associated with the specific resident(s) being visited by that individual.
Also, please think about getting your booster. Boosters are available for our residents so if your family member has not yet received their booster, please speak with the unit nurse or the nursing supervisor. For yourselves, the booster is being offered at almost every pharmacy on Staten Island as well as vaccine sites.
Please contact your health professional with any questions.
If you find out after you visited that you are COVID+ or have been in close contact with someone who is COVID+ please notify the facility nursing supervisor immediately.
Please help us keep COVID out of our facility. We are trying to do everything we can to keep your family member safe.
I want to thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
Again, your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.
Stay safe, and remember to consider to be vaccinated and boostered for COVID-19 and Influenza.
