On July 3, the Williamsbridge Center on Tomlinson Avenue treated their residents and staff to Mister Softee Ice Cream after the latest round of testing revealed that the facility had become COVID-19 free.
“The time has come to exhale a bit but we cannot get ahead ourselves,” said Daniel Prero, administrator at Williamsbridge Center. “My staff worked so hard for this to happen, but there’s no letting up on the front door screening, testing and wearing of PPE. This is a very tricky virus so all hands are still on deck. Not a day goes by that we don’t thinking of the three individuals who have passed away. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of those loved ones.”
The facility has also recorded 62 residents and 24 staff members who have recovered from COVID-19.
