iCare Health Network has issued the following statement on behalf of its managed skilled nursing care centers:
Under the direction and coordination of the Department of Public Health, this nursing home and all nursing homes in Connecticut, have been advised that visitors to the facility should not visit family members until further notice out of an abundance of caution pertaining to COVID-19. This care center does not have any cases of COVID-19, however, as part of the statewide plan to limit risk to our residents and employees, and in particular to a vulnerable population of individuals with chronic diseases and often times compromised immune systems, we are following this directive and coordinating it with other significant preparedness activities.
