Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have employed a number of measures recommended by the NYS Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to best protect the health and safety of our staff and residents:

  • Pandemic Emergency Plan (PEP)
  • Visitation Policy: As of 4/26/2021 Harlem Center is now open for visitation. Please click here to view our visitation policy and/or schedule an appointment.
  • Wearing a face mask: All healthcare personnel and other facility staff shall wear a face mask and gloves while within six feet of residents and one another.
  • Limitation of non-emergency offsite appointments: Non-emergency offsite appointments shall be canceled in order to prevent unnecessary potential for exposure.
  • Health check/screening: All individuals are screened upon entrance to the facility by answering designated questions on the Accushield kiosk and a physical temperature check. Any adverse response or temperature reading will be addressed accordingly.
