COVID-19 UPDATES

February 26, 2021

Dear All Ovation Jewish Home Residents, Families and Employees:

 Please know that we had an employee test positive for COVID-19 yesterday.  All other ongoing testing, as directed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Milwaukee Department of Health, have been negative.  The employee was not in direct contact with any other employees or residents.

Unfortunately, this news requires us to suspend indoor visitations for right now.  We will continue with heated, outdoor visitations.  If you would like to schedule a visit, or if you need additional information or have questions, please contact Kimberly Rosenau, our very busy Activities Director, at krosenau@ovation.org or 414-277-8845.

We are saddened that we need to suspend indoor visitations, but we are also busy today celebrating Purim with our entire community.  Here are a few pictures in the moment for you to enjoy:

Hoping you are safely and joyously celebrating a Happy Purim!

Michael I. Sattell, President & CEO
