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-19 cases due to the OMICRON Variant a Negative Covid test (PCR or Rapid Test) is now required for visitation. The safety of our residents is always our first priority.
