Program-Specific COVID-19 Reporting

As of Friday, January 21, 2022, Christian Health's current results for residents and patients in our care settings with a facility-onset COVID-19-positive diagnosis are available below. All positive residents/patients in long-term care are being safely cared for in a cohort in compliance with CDC and NJDOH guidelines.

Heritage Manor has one COVID-19 positive resident/patient.
Longview has one COVID-19 positive resident.
Southgate Special Care is COVID-19 free.
Ramapo Ridge Behavioral Health has one COVID-19 positive patient.

Among the hundreds of employees across our long-term/post-acute care, and assisted living communities, there are currently no COVID-19 positive cases that have been realized through in-house testing of team members. We follow all CDC guidelines for team members testing positive outside of work.

Christian Health continues to support our acute-care partners to meet the community's health-care needs. We are accepting admissions from local acute-care hospitals and some of these new admissions may be COVID-19 positive. These individuals are not identified in the counts of facility-onset COVID-19 above. These new residents/patients come to us for care to complete their recovery following hospitalization. They are tested before admission, upon arrival, and move into an established unit used to safely cohort new admissions.

We are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of infection and safeguard everyone on our campuses. Christian Health continues to be in full compliance with state-mandated regular testing of employees. We value transparency and will continue to update this page, communicate directly to family members, and make ourselves available to answer questions.
