On behalf of our management team, we appreciate your continued patience and understanding in these unprecedented times.

Fox Run Health Center Skilled Nursing

Fox Run is grateful to have zero confirmed Resident cases of COVID-19 in Skilled Nursing.  All Skilled Nursing Residents were tested for COVID-19 and the flu on Sunday, 2.28.2021 and all results are negative.  Skilled Nursing Residents will be tested again for COVID-19 on 3.7.2021.

Due to a Fox Run staff member testing positive for COVID-19 from our weekly mandated staff testing, visitation for Skilled Nursing is suspended for 14 days.  This staff member was immediately taken off the schedule and cannot return until they receive a negative COVID-19 test result.  Visitation is tentatively scheduled to resume on Sunday, 3.14.2021.   

Skilled Nursing staff are tested twice per week, until further notice.

If you choose to take a Resident who resides in Skilled Nursing off-campus, they are required to have a COVID-19 test and a negative result with-in 24-hours to be able to return back to the Fox Run campus.  That Resident will have to quarantine at Fox Run for 14 days and is required to have three additional COVID-19 tests during that 14 day quarantine.  Please note, this does NOT apply to necessary medical appointments.

Vaccine Information

Fox Run contracted with Walgreens Pharmacy as our vaccine partner pharmacy and is in the process of delivering and administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.  Availability and distribution are determined by the NYSDOH and CDC. Walgreens Pharmacy will be completing the consent forms, administering the vaccination, monitoring for side effects, providing education, and reporting the vaccine information to the NYSDOH, ECDOH and CDC.  

Fox Run is happy to report the vaccination process is running smoothly.  We are thankful to report that there were no significant reactions to the vaccine thus far and we continue to monitor all Residents for any changes in their health daily.  

The three vaccinations dates for Skilled Nursing are as follows: 

Day one 1.15.2021: Adminstersted 120 doses to Skilled Nursing Residents and staff

Day two 2.5.2021: Administered 128 doses to Skilled Nursing Residents and staff that received the vaccine on day one, and the first dose to the remaining Skilled Nursing Residents and staff

Day three 2.26.2021: Administered 16 doses to remaining second doses from the Skilled Nursing Residents and staff on day two

The three vaccinations dates for Assisted Living, Memory Care and Independent Living are as follows: 

Day one 1.26.2021: 290 doses were successfully given to Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Independent Living Residents and staff 

Day two 2.16.2021: 308 doses were administered to all Assisted Living, Memory Care and Independent Living Residents and staff that received the vaccine on day one, as well as distributed first dose to any remaining Assisted Living, Memory Care and Independent Living Residents and staff

Important information we would like to emphasize:
There will be approximately 21 days in between each clinic day.  The vaccine is not mandatory.  If your loved one has capacity, it is their decision. Autonomy is very important but if your loved one is not able to make medical decisions, someone will reach out to the responsible party to gain consent.  Any employee who receives the vaccine will still be required to be tested and wear all required PPE when at Fox Run.  Previously infected or current COVID-19 positive cases may still receive the vaccine, they just cannot be in their initial 14 day isolation period.  All individuals who receive the vaccine will be given a vaccination card.

Travel Advisory

All visitors to the Fox Run campus coming from another state must comply with Governor Cuomo’s travel advisory.  The guidelines for travelers visiting from non-contiguous states (states that DO NOT share a common border with NYS) still require a 10-day quarantine.  These non-contiguous, out-of-state visitors may opt to ‘test out’ of the mandatory 10-day quarantine. Scroll down to see guidelines. Visitors traveling from states that are contiguous with NYS will continue to be exempt from the travel advisory.   The contiguous states include Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Vermont.

For any visitors traveling to NYS from out of state (except the contiguous states), guidelines to ‘test-out’ of the mandatory 10-day quarantine include:

  • For travelers who were in a non-contiguous state for more than 24-hours:
    • Traveler must obtain a COVID-19 test within three days of departure from that state
    • Traveler must, upon arrival in NYS, quarantine for three days
    • On the fourth day of quarantine, traveler must receive another COVID-19 test
    • If both tests are negative, the traveler may exit quarantine upon receipt of the second negative COVID-19 test
  • For travelers who were in a non-contiguous state for less than 24-hours: 
  • The traveler does NOT need a test prior to departure from the other state, and does NOT need to quarantine upon arrival in NYS
  • The traveler must fill out the traveler information form upon entry into NYS, and take a COVID-19 test four days after arrival back into NYS

For further clarification and questions regarding the NYS travel advisory please visit the official NYS Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 website: COVID-19 Travel Advisory, https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory.
