Important Health Warning (Updated 07/03/20)

Fox Run is grateful to report that we continue to have zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our entire Campus.    

The New York State Department of Health (DOH) tested all of our assisted living and memory care residents for COVID-19 on Tuesday, June 16th.  All results are negative.

Under executive order, The Fox Run Health Center is still on “lock down’’.  Fox Run continues to prohibit visitors from entering our Health Center. Our residents are also restricted from leaving the Health Center to meet with family and friends.  We anxiously await direction from the Governor as to when we can re-open. We share in your frustrations, but rest assured, as soon as we receive information it will be communicated. 

In accordance with Governor Cuomo’s executive order that was extended for the second time until July 9th, Fox Run continues with weekly COVID-19 testing of all staff that work in our Health Center.  All staff continue to be screened before all shifts and monitored during their shift.

Over the course of the pandemic, the Fox Run Health Center has had a total of eight residents who have come off quarantine. Sadly, we continue to mourn the loss of our two community members whose deaths were COVID-19 related.  

Fox Run, along with our Medical Director Dr. Eileen Reilly, continue to be in daily contact with New York State DOH and our local representative from the Erie County DOH to ensure all processes and protocols are strictly followed. We continue to go above and beyond all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.  Please continue to visit our website for updates as well as our Facebook page.

Should you have questions regarding your loved one in the Health Center, please contact Fox Run’s CEO, Health Center Administrator, or Director of Nursing; their information is below.

If you would like to FaceTime with your loved one in the Health Center, schedule a balcony visit for a skilled nursing resident, or a window visit with an assisted living or memory care resident, please contact Jennifer Pellicane Activities Supervisor.  Please note for window visits the window MUST remain closed.  You can reach Jennifer at JPellicane@foxrunorchardpark.com or 716.508.2157.
