UPDATED 03/2021: HOW WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RESIDENTS AGAINST THE COVID-19 VIRUS

Updated Covid-19 Message / March 2021:

Dear Residents and Family Members,

On Wednesday, March 3rd we will have completed the mandatory waiting time after the 2nd vaccine.

So-What’s Next?

  1. Masks inside and out are still MANDATORY, that is per state and federal guidelines.  Continue to distance and wash your hands as 70% of people you may meet outside of Alta Vista have NOT been vaccinated!
  2. All residents may use the entire community.  That includes dining rooms, activities, the salon, transportation, etc.
  3. Shopping and banking (banks have not completely reopened so those times will be limited to when the bank is open) can be scheduled at the sign-up desk in the library in the blue book. See the “Week at a Glance” for days and times.
  4. All appointments need to be scheduled through the front desk or speak to Faith.  Reminder appointment days are Tuesday and Thursday 8 am to 4 pm.  Non-appointment days will have a transportation fee, see the attached memo.
  5. Residents with vehicles may drive themselves.
  6. Residents that have been going out and quarantining in their apartments may now use the common areas with a mask on.  Room tray delivery charges will now apply.
  7. Family visitations are as follows:
    1. Use of the two “clean rooms” just needs to be scheduled through the front desk, no COVID tests needed.
    2. Residents may go out with family, masks are mandatory.
    3. Family members that have had both vaccines and have documentation may go to the resident’s apartment; masks are mandatory.  It must be 14 days after the last vaccine.
    4. One designated family member (resident must designate the family member prior to arrival) that has a valid COVID test within 48 hours may go to the resident’s apartment for 4 hours. Masks are mandatory for all parties. Residents must complete the Family Designation form at the front desk.
    5. Two designated family members (resident must designate the family members prior to arrival) that have a valid COVID test within 48 hours may go to the resident’s apartment for 1 hour. Masks are mandatory for all parties. Residents must complete the Family Designation form at the front desk.

Important: If conditions change, we are notified from government agencies or we have a case of COVID we will discontinue all the above.

Thank you!
