Update: COVID-19 Information and Precautions

We know these are challenging times for you and your loved ones. Like you, our utmost concern is for the health and well-being of each of our patients and to ensure our staff is healthy and able to continue to care for patients. With that being said, we continue to take all necessary cautionary measures and are strictly adhering and implementing all CDC recommendations and guidelines. We continue to also work with local and state agencies as we fight Covid19. During this time we also recognize how important it is to keep the lines of communication open to give you peace of mind while we continue to meet the care needs of your loved ones while at our facility. As such, the facility will be providing updates of new developments as they take place on this page to keep you updated.


July 13, 2020

We wanted to provide an update on the Facility as it relates to COVID-19. Since the last update, there were several admissions, but we graduated the last confirmed case of COVID-19 from our Unit 19 on July 2, 2020. We thoroughly cleaned the entire hallway, rooms, and all equipment used in Unit 19, and our plan is to reduce the number of dedicated beds for COVID patients.

Currently, we do not have any confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our building. We do have one resident that we are treating as COVID +, even though the hospital Infection Disease doctor labeled the Resident’s test as a “false positive”, to ensure we are taking the utmost precautions when it comes to infection prevention.

Staff are getting tested at least monthly, and we tested several residents each week. We continue with work with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health vigilantly during this time. We know it can be difficult under the current circumstances to not be able to have the same access to your dearest loved ones. We are committed to doing whatever we can to keep the connection between you both.

It is our commitment to keep you informed during this unprecedented time. To that end, we are letting you know that 2 COVID-19 residents were admitted in our COVID Unit “Unit 19” in the past 24 hours.

Our facility admitted a new COVID positive resident into our designated unit. This unit continues to be separate from the rest of the building, and we continue to follow infection control guidelines.

Sunray Healthcare Center recently partnered with Los Angeles County Public Health in an effort to provide care to the most vulnerable community during this pandemic. As such, Sunray is now a dedicated COVID-19 facility. Essentially, this means that Sunray is able to accept vulnerable patients who are COVID+ from an acute care hospital and provide the care they need as well as the non-COVID+ patients.

Sunray has designated a COVID + unit that is separated from the remainder of the facility, with a dedicated staff and designated equipment, along with a barrier to the rest of the Facility and separate entrance as permitted.

By accepting these COVID+ patients it frees up hospital beds across Southern California that are desperately needed for those in dire need. With that being said, Sunray has now begun to accept COVID+ patients.

For this week, 3 COVID+ patients have been accepted at Sunray in the past day.

Know that we continue to monitor all staff members before and after each shift for signs and symptoms of COVID, including taking each person’s temperature. We are adhering to the infection control guidelines as outlined by public health.


May 8, 2020

This week, Sunray was able to do facility-wide Covid-19 testing for residents and staff. Those test results show that we have five additional COVID-positive residents and one additional COVID-positive staff member. We have been actively partnering with our community hospitals to readmit our COVID-positive residents back to the facility in a safe manner and in coordination with the local health department. All COVID-positive residents are under strict isolation protocols. As of today, we have 10 COVID-positive residents in-house and 8 COVID-positive staff.
