During the COVID-19 pandemic, it was crucial to adhere to vaccination, masking, and social distancing policies. At Jewish Senior Life, we have taken a deliberate and gradual approach in removing these measures. We have consistently aligned our actions with the latest state and federal guidelines, prioritizing the health and safety of our residents, patients, visitors, and staff.
We would like to express our gratitude for your cooperation with JSL’s COVID-19 safety policies over the past three years. Your support has been invaluable in ensuring the well-being of our community.
We have received guidance issued by the NYS DOH regarding staff booster shots and visitor testing. The latest guidance was issued in May 2023. The following are some highlights of the guidance:
We continue to provide the opportunity for families to join their loved ones at any of our off-home activity programs. You are more than welcome to join your loved one at a program in the Cottage Community room, outdoors on our campus or at programs within the main building in the Sands Center or Art Room. Families are encouraged to check out the OMA Art Exhibit in our Sokol Porch or stop in for a quick gift at the Gift Shop.
Programs that are being held in individual homes within the cottages or on the households within the Tower are not opened up for families to attend at this time. These areas are for residents only as they are shared common areas within our campus.
