Family Visits
Jewish Home: Monday, August 10
As you know we recently had a staff member test positive for COVID.  Per NYSDOH’s July 10th executive order, we are required to have a 28-day period without a positive staff or resident COVID test. This delayed our ability to open to family visits. Provided that we continue to remain COVID free, we will begin accepting appointments for families to visit. Visits will begin on Monday, August 10. Families will be able to schedule appointments either online. Details on how to schedule as well as visit protocol will be forthcoming later this week.

In the meantime, we recommend that families continue to work with their SJFS contact to schedule “drive up” or virtual visits.

The Inn
The Inn families can continue to schedule in-person or virtual visits. Please contact Matt LeFever at (315) 446-9111, ext.180, or via email to schedule a day and time.

 Restricted States (Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 205)
Just a reminder that if family members are traveling from these states (https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory) ) to New York, they are required to self-quarantined for 14 days BEFORE coming to Menorah Park. Otherwise, they are not permitted to enter or visit with residents.
