Coronavirus Information and Precautions
June 24, 2021
Dear Residents and Families,
We are pleased to inform you that Sierra Valley Rehab Center continues to remain COVID-19 free. We will continue to test our residents and staff as clinically indicated.
Our facility has adequate staffing and an adequate supply of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Our healthcare team has been doing heroic work and will continue to perform their duties. All of us at Sierra Valley Rehab Center genuinely care about the safety and well-being of our residents.
We are in regular communication with Tulare County Health and Human Services and CDPH. We continue to implement all current CMS, CDC, and CDPH guidelines regarding COVID-19.
We encourage both residents and loved ones to continue communicating with each other by email or enjoying time on Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype.
We are eager for you to visit your loved ones at our facility. We have yet to receive guidelines from the appropriate regulatory authorities which either confirm or modify CDC’s recommendations. We continuously monitor all the communication from the California Department of Public Health, County Department of Public Health, and Local Public Health authorities and will, at the very first opportunity, notify you of changes in regulation that will allow you to freely visit. We must advise you that should these flexibilities be allowed at our facility, that they are conditioned on both the visitors and residents being fully vaccinated. We shall develop policies and processes that will allow us to confirm the vaccination status of all concerned.
If you have a family member in our care and would like an update on his or her condition, please call our facility at (559) 784-7375. You can also visit our website https://svsnf.com/ for additional helpful information and visit these links to the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/) and CMS (https://www.cms.gov/) websites.
We are happy to announce that we are now accepting reservations for in-person visitation. All visitations must follow CDC guidelines. Please call our facility for details about these guidelines and next steps for scheduling your appointment with your loved one.
Please call 559-784-7375. Thank you!
