Dear POAs, Families, Conservators,
Hope you are all staying safe and healthy.
Quick update: A COVID-19 test is no longer required for visitors who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccine; an up-to-date vaccine status is defined as a person who has all recommended doses in their primary series, and a booster dose when eligible. When visiting your loved one, please provide proof of same. If a visitor is not up to date with their COVID-19 vaccine, they will be required to do a rapid COVID-19 test prior to entering Sunnyside Gardens; this will be at the expense of the visitor. Masking is still mandatory while at Sunnyside Gardens. If a visitor has any COVID-19 symptoms, we ask they do not come until symptoms have resolved, and are no longer in the infectious stage, as per CDC guidelines.
Please relay this information to all family and friends who will visit Sunnyside Gardens.
If you have any questions, please email them to me. Please allow me 2 business days to respond

We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Santa Clara County Public Health and state recommendations in relation to visitation to Assisted Living Communities. We are writing to share more details with you regarding these changes.
