Update from Administrator – September 22, 2021

September 22, 2021

Dear Friends and Families of Valerie Manor,

This is an update on our facility Covid Status. Great News!!! We have no new positives to report. All Covid positive residents in the facility have been classified as fully Covid Recovered. Our last round of testing on 9/20-22 resulted in 0 (zero) positive Staff and 0 (zero) new positive Residents. This Means that Friday 9/24, we will have exceeded our 14 day DPH requirement of no new positive residents and Staff and will be able to reopen to Full Visitation!!

  1. The ongoing Outbreak testing protocols for residents and staff was completed 9/22. Regular Indoor visitation and activities will resume this Friday 9/24.
  2. Until then…Outdoor Visitation, Virtual Visitation, Compassionate Care visitation, and Window Visitation is still available. Please call our Therapeutic Recreation staff for assistance.

We are happy to say that our staff is now at 99% vaccinated. We are awaiting the final few Staff and Vender communications to be at 100% compliant to the 13F executive order. Vaccines are available to any resident unvaccinated who wish to get the shot.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. With most of our residents being vaccinated, the State mandated staff vaccinations in process, and increased recruitment efforts in place, our goal is always to maintain the safety of our residents and staff. Thank you for your support and we look forward to being #TogetherAgain starting this Friday!
