ECMC Prepares Updated Visitation Guidance for Terrace View
Update follows recent New York State DOH visitation recommendations and guidance for general nursing homes
BUFFALO, NY – Based on New York State DOH’s recently updated guidance regarding general nursing home visitation, Terrace View Long-Term Care (located on ECMC’s Grider Street Health Campus) is updating its visitation policies for its residents’ families, friends and loved ones. Due to a Terrace View staff member’s positive COVID-19 test on February 20th, and adhering to the updated state guidance that requires a 14-day waiting period between a positive COVID-19 test in any general nursing home facility and the resumption of visitation, planning is underway for re-opening resident visitation at Terrace View on March 6, 2021. More details regarding Terrace View visitation policies and procedures will be distributed soon.
