Dear Extended Cobble Hill Family,

Late yesterday afternoon, the DOH notified us that they will be sending a team of nurses
into Cobble Hill over the next few days to test all of our residents for Covid-19. They will be
doing the same for all nursing homes in the State. We welcome this support.

Although we’ve already tested all symptomatic residents and moved all positives to a
COVID only unit, this will allow us to identify any potentially infected asymptomatic residents as well. We don’t know exactly when they will be coming in nor do we know exactly when the
results will come back. Once we do have the results we will do the following: 1) Notify all
residents/Designated Representatives of those that test positive within 24 hours, 2) analyze the
results and see how they inform our cohorting plan, 3) put that plan in place as quickly as is

We encourage you to check our COVID-19 page on our website frequently for additional
updates and notifications. Because our staff are working hard to provide care to your loved
ones, I’d respectfully ask that if you have questions or concerns about this to please leave us a
message on our COVID hotline (718) 247-1153 or email us at instead of
calling the units. We will do our best to reply to all of those messages and emails as quickly as
we possibly can.

Thank you
Donny Tuchman, CEO
