We still have NO cases of COVID 19 at Cayuga Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
We have begun testing residents. The residents being tested are those who, we have had to isolate due to leaving the building, as well as, those who may exhibit any symptoms. We are screening our residents at least twice daily for symptoms. Thus far we have not had any residents exhibiting any symptoms. If a resident leaves the facility they must be isolated until two negative test results.
In recent weeks we have developed a data base containing the email addresses of our resident's primary contacts. This data base will be used to convey important information. We believe that email will be the quickest and most efficient way to communicate information. If you are the primary contact for one of our residents and did not receive an email explaining how stimulus checks will be distributed, please contact us at 607.273.8072.
If a resident and/or employee is diagnosed with COVID 19 we will contact resident's family members/ resident representatives within 24 hours of the facility receiving confirmation of the diagnosis. This notification will come via email or phone message.
We do NOT have any employees diagnosed with COVID19. We continue to screen all of our employees as they arrive at the facility. If an employee works more than eight hours they must be re-screened.
We currently are NOT facing any shortages, including PPE.
