The Latest on COVID at Kendal on Hudson

July 9, 2020 – The Operations Team is meeting regularly to evaluate Kendal on Hudson’s status and identify steps to reopen in a thoughtful and careful way. Our goal is to keep everyone (residents and staff) safe from continued risks of COVID but also move together, unified with a new outlook of hope.  We realize that after many months of “quarantine”, some are apprehensive to re-engage in what has become a new, normal way of life.  The Kendal on Hudson team is committed to helping you to take steps forward by providing best practice guidelines and safety reminders.   

Just a reminder:  The Health Center (Clearwater, Adirondack & Sunnyside) are still under the directive of the NYS Department of Health restricting all outside visitors and congregate activity.  As guidelines change in these areas, we will adjust accordingly.
