Lewis County Residential Health Care Facility re-opens for in-person visitation

LOWVILLE, NY ─ All four floors of the Lewis County Residential Health Care Facility (RHCF) will fully reopen for in-person visitation on Friday, June 25, 2021.

Visitation was suspended on June 23 due to a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19.

“We are happy to be able to open all floors before the weekend so that families can spend time with their loved ones,” stated Debra Wurz, Nursing Home Administrator.

A reminder, no appointments are needed to visit. Visitors must sign in and out when they visit and follow the core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention. This includes maintaining six feet of social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing, and wearing a facility-issued face mask. Visitors will be asked to
leave the facility if they do not follow the core principles.
