This alert is to inform all Visitors, Employees, Volunteers, and Residents that we have received notification of 2 residents testing positive for COVID-19 on 1/15/2021. 

Contact tracing and COVID-19 testing is being conducted on any residents or employees that may have been exposed.

Recent updates to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) guidelines now allow for open visitation inside the facility, which may occur in the resident rooms. In-room visitation will be limited to two persons at a time, in order to adhere to core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention. Please be aware that new LISVH visitation guidelines have been established to reflect current CMS & NYS DOH visitation regulations. These guidelines can be reviewed here, prior to your visit. While not required, we continue to strongly encourage visitation to be pre-scheduled, as this will allow us to provide a private, designated visiting space for your convenience, and to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. If you prefer to have a private designated space available for visiting with your loved ones, we will have individual rooms available on a first come, first serve basis.> You may request one of these private rooms via our signup genius link on our website. If you need assistance with booking a private visitation room, please contact our staff at 631-371-8000, Monday through Friday, 9am-2pm. We wish to thank you in advance for following our visitation guidelines in an effort to keep you and your loved one safe.
