As per the recommendation from the City of Newark Department of Health and Community Wellness, visitation for New Community Extended Care will be placed on pause for the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff due to the high rate of positivity for the COVID-19 Omicron variant.
If visitation is necessary, only one visitor will be allowed at a time and the visitor must be fully vaccinated and boosted and will be required to wear a mask at all times. Screenings will also be conducted (taking temperature and completing a questionnaire).
The city will continue to monitor cases in our most vulnerable population including seniors and residents at long-term care facilities as they continue to modify recommendations based on science and data.
Thank you for your understanding.
Extended Care Administrator
