Working to Keep Residents and Staff Members Safe

Any staff member with symptoms of COVID, being tested for COVID, or having a diagnosis of COVID, are kept out of work until they have been symptom-free for several days, and cleared to return to work by the Monroe County Health Department. 

We have adapted the latest evidence-based local and federal health guidelines to protect residents and staff from the risk of COVID. These include:

  • Requiring all staff to undergo health screening prior to reporting to work
  • Screening all staff for symptoms and fever every time they enter our facilities 
  • Universal masking for all staff while they are in our facilities
  • Elimination of large resident group activities and communal dining
  • Using virtual medical appointments whenever possible so that residents do not need to leave our buildings
  • Screening all new residents on admission for possibility of recent COVID exposure or infection
  • Regular disinfection of all units, nursing stations and treatment areas
