Important Covid-19 Information
Countryside Adult Home administration learned early Thursday morning that an individual who had been in the home earlier this week had tested positive for COVID-19 during a routine screening. This person was asymptomatic. Countryside administration have worked with Warren County Public Health staff to investigate the situation, and the risk to others in the home is believed to be minimal because of the precautions that have been in place at Countryside since the pandemic began. This situation is being closely monitored, and updates will be posted if needed.
As an Adult Home licensed by New York State Department of Health, Countryside Home is following DOH guidance on how to address the global epidemic of COVID-19.
It's through this guidance that the residents and staff have been having temperature monitoring and screening questions done each day.
The facility is closed to all non-essential visitors; we do still continue to have weekly provider visits as well as telehealth services.
Our staff is dedicated to both the physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents so we continue to involve the residents in daily activities while adhering to social distancing.
We are committed to sharing information for the good of all public health but we must adhere to the privacy of our residents and staff.
At this time we are happy to report no cases at CSAH of COVID-19. Updates will be given as situations may evolve in the coming future.
