LOWVILLE, NY (WWTI) – Lewis County Health’s Residential Health Care Facility once again confirms cases among residents.

In a report on February 18, LCH reported on three COVID-19 cases among first-floor residents of the Residential Health Care Facility. At the time of the report, there were five residents currently in isolation.

The COVID-19 cases were confirmed on February 18 and were the first identified in over a week. The facility had previously restored all COVID-positive residents by February 14th. Since 2 January, however, there had been 41 COVID-19 cases in the Facility.

Residents on the first floor remain on transmission-based security measures, which will require all visitors, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a dress, gloves, shield and a mask issued by the facility.

Residents on the second, third and fourth floors are no longer on transmission-based security measures, so visitors are only required to wear a mask issued by the facility.

In addition, all visitors to the Residential Health Care Facility must test negative for COVID-19 before arriving at the facility.

Rapid antigen testing must be completed one day before a visit, and test kits are still available on the switch from 6 p.m. 6 to 6 p.m.

Lewis County Residential Health Care Facility residents will continue to be monitored for COVID-19 symptoms, and residents will be tested every three to five days.
