COVID-19 TESTING

Effective immediately as per the Governor’s order, Jamaica Hospital Nursing Home will require proof of a negative COVID-19 test for every visitor to the facility.  Rapid antigen tests must be taken within 24 hours of entering the facility and PCR tests must be taken within 48 hours of entering the facility.  Documentation of this test must be provided prior to entry. If a rapid test is used, the visitor must present the actual test with the date written on the test.

While supplies last, visitors who are not able to provide a test result will be given a self-test kit and will be instructed to administer the test outside of the facility and return with the results.  If a test result is positive, the visitor will be denied entry.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of our residents, staff and visitors remains our highest priority.

Thank you for your cooperation !
