10.1.20 Letter to Family 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 both Resident and Employees at this time. In transparency the facility currently has no residents or employees that are positive for COVID-19. We are proud to report that the Newark Department of Health & community Wellness has concluded this facilities outbreak as of 9/4/2020. As such we will moved to limited testing for residents based on need (those going out for medical appointments, with symptoms etc.) and will continue with weekly testing for all employees. Unfortunately, we suffered with the total loss of 20 Residents to the Covid-19 virus. Please bear with us as we adjust to the new policies in place to slowly open to more limited activities within the facility. We are happy to announce that we have had over 100 residents successfully recover from COVID-19. We ask that everyone remains vigilant with PPE & mask usage and we continuously encourage safe social distancing.
Sinai continues to arrange scheduled & supervised outdoor visitation by appointment only. Please note these visits are scheduled Monday-Friday during the time period of 11:30am- 1:30pm. Visits will be limited to 15 minutes per visit at this time in order to accommodate as many scheduled visits as possible. ** Please Note – visits may be cancelled / rescheduled due to extreme weather conditions such as Rain or Temperatures above 90 degreesPlease see the website for visitation rules and regulations for visiting at this time.
Any family that would like to arrange for a facetime phone call, outdoor visitation, essential caregiver visit or end of life visit can either contact the social services department of leave a voice mail at 973-483-6800×117.
