Hello Family and Friends of the Pines of Olean,
Please be advised that the Pines of Olean received results this morning on our large scale employee COVID testing. Thankfully, we had multiple negative results. Unfortunately, we had 1 contracted staff test positive.
Due to the positive test result we have changed our Window Visit procedure. Upon arrival, please be seated under the awning at the front of the building. Please do not arrive before your scheduled time to ensure proper social distancing is maintained.
In an overabundance of caution, The Pines of Olean would like to offer all residents the option to be tested for COVID 19. Please contact the nursing department if you would like your loved one tested. Thank you for your time and understanding as we move forward in our effort to keep our residents and staff safe during these challenging times.
On the morning of June 10, 2020, the Pines of Olean received more results from our State-directed large scale employee COVID-19 testing. We had multiple negative results, and 1 positive result for a contracted staff member. As required we have provided notification to all families and staff members of the positive results. We have also offered testing to all residents as a precautionary measure.
The facility will continue to follow all Executive Orders issued by Governor Cuomo. Additional positive test results may arise as reports continue to come in. Plans are in place to accommodate for staffing needs and challenges that may occur as a result of employees being taken out of work due to this testing mandate. Plans are also in place to isolate residents who may receive a positive test result to avoid the spread of infection.
