Dear Family Members and Friends,

The Care Center at Sunset Lake remains committed to protecting residents and staff from COVID-19. We have made it a priority to keep our residents, families and staff informed of our efforts to ensure the safety and health of everyone living and working at The Care Center during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this time, we have three (3) staff members who tested positive for COVID-19 as of this date. The facility is conducting outbreak testing as required based on the positive results. The staff member who tested positive has not worked at the facility in the last 48 hours.

At this time we have two (2) positive residents at the facility. All precautions are being taken and all CDC and DOC guidance is being followed in order to avoid the spread of COVID-19 to additional staff or residents.

Please note that while we are open for visitation we are now requiring, as per CMS and NYSDOH, that all visitors are able to present proof of a negative result when visiting the facility. This can be done by rapid testing at the door prior to visitation.

In addition, please note that if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or if you have had any exposure to someone who is positive in the last 14 days, you will not be permitted to enter the facility. PPE is still required in keeping with the core Principles of Infection Control Policies and Procedures. Visitors are reminded that they must wear a mask as well during all visitation. Masks cannot be cloth; they must be a paper surgical mask.

There has been a recent uptick in cases in all counties. Please make sure that when you are coming to visit your loved one that you are well. If you do not feel well, please do not visit. Also ensure that you are adhering to the core principles of infection control practices. This will ensure that we more easily can keep the residents, staff and families of the facility happy and healthy. Thank you all, as always, for your cooperation and for your continued support.

We will keep you updated on any further developments.
