Below are current visiting guidelines, per the Department of Health (DOH):

  • Visitors are required to stay 6 feet away from staff, other residents and other visitors.
  • Clean your hands frequently while onsite.
  • Stay home when you’re ill.

Before you visit, you must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result:

  • no more than 2 days prior to visiting for PCR tests. Example: a test for a Sunday visit should be conducted no earlier than Friday.

Accepted Proof of COVID-19 testing:

1. For rapid antigen test taken at home—You may show a photo of your negative test result on your electronic device.

2. For COVID-19 test taken at an outside facility—You may show your dated negative test result on an electronic device or bring a paper copy.

3. After you have provided your first negative COVID-19 test result, you may request a Rapid COVID-19 home test kit at the Weinberg Campus reception desk to use prior to future visits. A limited supply is available.

4. Our staff will verify acceptable proof of your negative COVID-19 test before you will be allowed to visit.

  • Visitors who fail to provide acceptable proof of a negative COVID-19 test will not be allowed to visit until proof of an acceptable negative COVID-19 test is provided.
  • If you have had COVID-19 within the past 90 days, and have completed your 5 day isolation period, you must still present a negative COVID-19 test result to enter the facility.

5. After providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, you will need to complete the screening process, and attest that you provided your negative COVID-19 test result to the facility.

We will continue to follow DOH and CMS guidance for any exemptions to requirements for COVID-19 testing prior to visitation.

Additional Visitor Guidelines

  • Face masks (covering nose and mouth) are required to be worn whenever entering the facility and during indoor and outdoor visits with residents. Regardless of resident and visitor vaccination status, a mask must be worn by both resident and visitor(s) if the county COVID-19 level of transmission is substantial to high.
  • Residents, regardless of their vaccination status, can choose to have close close physical contact (such as a hug) with visitor(s), despite the visitor’s vaccination status. The resident and visitor(s) must be alone in the resident room or designated visitation room, or outside on the facility grounds and must be socially distanced from others. The visitor(s) must wear a well-fitting face mask. The resident is encouraged to wear a well-fitting face mask but the resident, regardless of vaccination status, can choose not to wear a mask when other residents are not present. Hand-hygiene should be performed before and after physical contact.
  • Please note residents and visitors who are not up to date on all COVID vaccinations that engage in physical contact increase the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
  • All visitors must wear face coverings and physically distance when around other residents and healthcare personnel, regardless of their vaccination status.
  • Visits must be conducted in the resident’s room or designated visitation room, or outside on the facility grounds.
  • Individuals must maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet from others during indoor and outdoor visits and when traveling to and from a resident’s room.

    Safety Measures

    • We continue to follow DOH guidelines for resident testing of COVID-19. All residents are screened for fevers every 8 hours and monitored for signs and symptoms for COVID-19 on every shift.
    • Staff continue to follow strong infection control practices. To ensure everyone’s safety, we continue to follow the DOH requirements in utilizing personal protective equipment such as face masks, eye protection, gowns, and gloves as required. Staff training on best practices is ongoing.
    • We continue to follow DOH guidelines for employee COVID testing. The DOH determines testing frequency based on the transmission rates of COVID-19 within Erie County. All employees are screened daily. This includes taking their temperature and asking screening questions. If employees are ill they are required to stay home.
    • Science-based, comprehensive disinfection practices include a pulsed UV disinfection system proven to eliminate pathogens such as coronavirus from surfaces in seconds. This cutting-edge technology is used in many hospitals.
    • We also practice a 7-step disinfection process that follows CDC infection control guidance using hospital-grade disinfectants.
    • In addition to these practices, we use a Storm 2 Pro Dual Pressure sprayer to sanitize and disinfect. The pressure sprayer can penetrate difficult areas beyond surface cleaning.
    • The DOH has conducted infection control surveys reviewing our COVID-19 protocols and procedures and we received ZERO deficiencies.
    • Rosa Coplon Living Center is taking every step recommended by the DOH to protect residents and employees. We monitor updated guidance and immediately implement new protocols to meet the DOH requirements.
