PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - The Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital Skilled Nursing Facility is temporarily pausing visitations after a positive COVID test.

The hospital says a staff member inside the unit tested positive for the virus Monday.

New York guidelines require long-term care facilities to suspend visitations if there is a positive test or exposure. Testing of all residents and staff is currently underway.

The staff will help residents stay in contact with family through phone calls and technology.
