To aid in reducing the transmission of COVID-19, The Silvercrest Center STRONGLY advises all family and visitors to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and, if eligible, a booster dose. Due to the recent increase in COVID cases in our Queens community, it is strongly advised that you get vaccinated and boosted AND have a negative test result 24 hours before visiting. The safety of our residents is always our first priority.

  • Please do not visit if you have been exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19. Please do NOT visit the facility if you are sick.
  • All visitors must perform hand hygiene and temperature screening upon entry to the building. All visitors must sign in.

  • In addition to masks, visitors must wear gowns and gloves while in resident rooms only.
  • Visitors must remove their gown and gloves and then wash hands or use hand sanitizer before leaving resident rooms. Masks must remain on until exiting the building.
