Dear Family Members and Friends,


The Care Center at Sunset Lake remains committed to protecting residents and staff from COVID-19. We have made it a priority to keep our residents, families and staff informed of our efforts to ensure the safety and health of everyone living and working at The Care Center during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are happy to announce that our last round of testing yielded no additional positive resident results at this time. We will be testing again today 1/24/22.

At this time we have 2 new staff that have tested positive for COVID 19- on 1/23/2022. All staff will return after their required quarantine period. We have a total of 6 staff currently on furlough.

Please note that while we are open for visitation we are now requiring as per CMS and NYSDOH that all visitors are able to present proof of a negative result when visiting the facility. This information and the guidance from DOH are available at the front reception desk if any who would like a copy

PPE is still required in keeping with the core Principles of Infection Control Policies and Procedures, At this time Unit 3 no longer requires full PPE to enter the unit, though any visitor of a resident who remains on precautions must adhere to the PPE requirements. Visitors are reminded that they must wear a mask as well during all visitation, that is not cloth, it must be a paper surgical mask.
