COVID-19 Update

Dear Amber Court friends, family and community,

Together with you, we have been focused on maintaining the health and safety of our community during this time. Now, as we approach the home stretch, we are working to ensure that the transition is as safe and smooth as possible while conforming to all CDC and NYS Health guidelines.

To that end, we have established protocols for residents, staff, and visitors. We appreciate your cooperation in abiding by these protocols!

For our residents, the daily monitoring for signs of illness and the use of COVID-testing as needed continues. Social distancing practices are still being carried out, including in-room dining, keeping social and recreational activities to groups of 10 or under including staff and instructors, and wearing PPE such as masks in public spaces, elevators and, common areas. Though modified, we have also continued our schedule of varied entertainment and enriching activities, to make this time as pleasant as possible.

For our staff, daily temperature checks and health status questionnaires are conducted upon entry into our community on every shift. In addition, weekly COVID-testing is performed on all team members. We are also providing all staff with adequate PPE and hand sanitizer to supplement frequent hand washing. High-touch areas are cleaned frequently, and we are staying on top of all guidelines and suggestions put out by the CDC and Health Department.

For our community, although we are still under visitation restrictions, we strongly encourage video calls and the like with residents. Feel free to reach out at any time to schedule a video chat with a loved one! We know it is hard to be away from family for so long, so we will keep you updated as soon as we are safely able to have visitors.

As always, you can reach out to the Amber Court staff with any questions you may have. We’re here for you in every way we can be! The staff liaison can be reached at  718.649.0700 or email gberger@ambercourtal.com..

Thank you for your continued cooperation!

The Amber Court Family of Care
