Latest COVID-19 Update

Friday, July 23, 2021

As repetitive as this may sound, I hope it’s still good news to hear that there are no COVID-19 cases at RCH. All tests this week came back negative, and our streak continues. Unfortunately, the CALI score in our region is still on the rise. As always, please keep up with safety measures when you visit to ensure our continued success.

Here to report again that we have had no new cases this week and continue to love the streak we have been on.  A lot of you have asked about when we would relax the restrictions on visitation, at this time we have not received any new directions from the state regarding that. We look forward to sending you those updates once we get them. Again, we urge you to stay safe and healthy out there as the CALI score in our region continues to rise.

Visitation Notes:

  • Visitors and residents must wear a tight-fitting mask for the duration of the visit and adhere to the guidelines.
  • Visitors and residents are not able to eat or drink during their visits.
  • Each resident is limited to no more than two visitors per visit. Please coordinate with your families accordingly.
  • When signing up for visits, please be mindful of the frequency of your visits to help ensure that other residents and their families have the opportunity to see each other as well.

Happy 4th of July in Advance!!! Summer certainly came in with a bang as several states endured the heat wave this week. We hope you and your family have been able to stay cool. Once again, I’m happy to report that we have no new COVID-19 cases despite the positive case numbers going up in our region. Our goal is to keep this momentum going and, in an effort, to do that, we ask that visitors continue keep their mask on during their visits and adhere to the guidelines.

Our streak continues with no new COVID-19 cases this week. It feels great to know that we are heading in the right direction not only as a facility but also as a state with the case rate continuing to drop in NJ. Please note that at this time, can only accommodate two guests at a time for visitations. We appreciate your understanding as things continue to unfold. Enjoy the weekend ahead!

We’ve now gone TWO MONTHS without any positive COVID-19 cases at RCH (insert confetti here)!!! This is truly humbling considering how far we’ve come, definitely a great way to end the week. On another exciting note, the beauty salon is re-opening on Monday 6/21/21.
