Wilf Campus Updates on COVID-19
The impact of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak has affected all aspects of our lives. It has significantly impacted the lives of our residents, patients and clients. Our primary focus has been, and will always be, the safety and well-being of our residents, patients, clients and staff. Below you will find updates, information and steps we are taking to keep our seniors happy and healthy.
We continue to remain at a heightened state of precautions regarding mandatory mask wearing, social distancing, sanitizing, disinfecting and the consistent testing of all our staff. The residents at Stein Assisted Living continue to be tested weekly as well.
We will continue to allow visitation that is scheduled through our receptionist. Outside visitation is preferred however, as the weather gets colder, indoor visitation is in designated inside areas only, except for compassionate care visits as assessed and approved by the Clinical Management Team. Visitors must wear an N95 mask. Visitors entering our memory care unit “Jaffa Gate “will not be allowed into the residents’ apartment, rather we have set up designated area for visits scheduled for the residents residing in Jaffa Gate.
Resident Engagement activities continue, however, groups are currently limited to 10 residents at a time.

Wilf Transport is Taking Precautions to Reduce the Spread of Coronavirus
FROM OUR BLOG
We continue to monitor the situation closely and follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the New Jersey Department of Health (DOH). We have also implemented some precautions and steps to keep our residents, patients and staff safe.
Our staff are well versed in all of the latest guidelines and are constantly trained on new safety precautions, new protocols and Personal Protective Equipment as directed by the CDC and the NJ DOH. In addition, our entire staff has been tested for COVID-19 and continues to be screened for symptoms prior to the start of services to ensure that they do not show signs of illness.
We are still restricting visitors into our buildings to allow only healthcare professionals and staff. Family members are currently allowed outside visitation at Stein Assisted Living under certain guidelines.
Thank you for your support and cooperation during this unprecedented situation.

CORONAVIRUS QUICK FACTS
The best way to prevent getting coronavirus (COVID-19) is to avoid exposure. This is the only current proven prevention method as neither a vaccine or proven therapy have been developed.
How can exposure be reduced? The virus is thought to mainly be spread from person-to-person contact by spread of droplets. These droplets spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes. Therefore, it is important to:
- Maintain a distance of at least six feet away from others when in public.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol. For more guidance on proper hand washing, refer to this article.
- Wear a mask or face covering when entering spaces that have multiple people, and indoors. For more guidance, refer here.
