As of this past weekend, we have a second positive COVID case. The individual has been transferred to a local hospital. Both individuals were in single rooms and they were not in proximity to our long-term care residents. While we had hoped that we could tentatively resume visitation sometime around February the 22nd, due to this recent positive, we are now required to wait another 14 days before identifying a date to resume visits.

At this time Menorah Park has no other confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our campus which includes the Jewish Home, the Inn, and the Oaks.

We understand many of you have questions regarding how vaccinations will impact our visitation procedure. At this time there has been no change to the NYSDOH’s requirement that visitors provide proof of a negative test 7 days prior to visits (not applicable to assisted living), complete screening for temp, symptoms, and travel, wear a mask, and practice social distancing.

We are in regular contact with local and state health officials and when we receive clarification, we will update our families. We appreciate your patience.
