09.24.21 Letter To Families and Friends
Dear Sinai Residents, Employees, Families, Friends, and Doctors;
I hope this letter finds you Healthy & Safe!
To ensure the safety of our residents and employees we are continuing Covid-19 testing of unvaccinated Employees and unvaccinated Residents if they are out in the community & potentially exposed as well as all those that are symptomatic. We ask that everyone remains vigilant with PPE & mask usage, and we continuously encourage safe social distancing.
** We currently have one employee that tested positive for Covid-19 on 9/16/21. The employee had tested negative earlier this week but worked on the 6th floor unit since then- the 6th floor unit will be placed on quarantine while outbreak testing takes place. All potentially exposed residents will be tested twice and all employees in the building will be tested as well regardless of their vaccination status. We will ensure to advise if anyone else is found to test positive.
- Please note we have one positive covid resident admitted to us from the hospital with positive test result, resident was immediately isolated on the covid unit.
Covid-19 Vaccine Clinics at Sinai Post Acute have been taking place continuously since 12/30/2020.
Our pharmacy provider is now providing vaccination clinics that will be made available for new admissions and residents / staff that have not yet received the vaccine every few weeks – Next Scheduled Date is 10/12/21- Booster Vaccinations will be available to eligible residents at this time as well. We continue to encourage all Residents, Employees and Families to get vaccinated at this time!

Please note all visitation must be scheduled in advance and limited to 20 minutes for outdoor visitation and up to 2 hours for any type of indoor visitation.
