Dear Residents, Staff and Families
At the direction of the New Jersey Department of Health, we have continued to conduct weekly testing of all staff. We continuously monitor residents for signs and symptoms, and will contact you if your loved one is diagnosed with COVID-19. In addition to these precautions put into place, we are providing on-going training to all employees on infectious disease control measures, we have a supply of PPE, we are screening and taking temperatures of EVERY person coming in and out of the facility, and are strictly adhering to guidance from local, state, and federal agencies.
We have been informed that an employee has tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. The employee has been removed from the schedule and is currently the only employee positive with the virus. None of our residents are currently positive. We are in contact with the Health Department, and we are following their direction.
We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important to our residents. Family members are encouraged to connect with their loved ones through video chat, calling, texting, or other social media formats. If you would like to schedule a video chat with a resident, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the facility at 732-905-0700 and ask to speak with the Activities Director. Alternatively, you can now schedule an outdoor visitation in accordance with Department of Health Guidelines.
We encourage you to call our facility at 732-905-0700 for updates on the status of your loved one. If you have any questions, you can email our Director of Social Services, Sarah Hauer at email@example.com.
I appreciate your understanding and continued support. We know this is a difficult time for everyone. We remain hyper vigilant and will do our best to keep communication flowing as the situation evolves.
Yeshaya Seeve, LNHA
