Arbor Acres Updates: COVID-19

These are unprecedented times, and the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) has placed us in uncharted territory.

During this period of uncertainty, Arbor Acres is committed to keeping you informed about how we are helping maintain the health and safety of residents and staff.

Several months ago, Arbor Acres formed a Coronavirus Task Force consisting of senior management and directors from all departments and levels of care. The Task Force is meeting frequently and is continually monitoring the development of COVID-19, following updates, and implementing recommendations from local, state, and national health officials, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Task Force will continue to respond in a timely manner to developments in this ever-changing health threat.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we implement difficult but recommended measures to protect and keep Arbor Acres as healthy as possible.

We will use this page to keep you up to date on how Arbor Acres continues to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Pandemic Updates

Current COVID-19 Protocols

Here is a summary of the protocols Arbor Acres has in place as of January 26, 2021.


  • Facemasks and Social Distancing Required. Residents and staff are required to wear face masks whenever they are in or passing through common areas on campus, walking with small groups outdoors that are practicing safe social distancing protocols, or interacting with healthcare staff. Residents must continue to practice social-distancing safe standards.
  • On-Campus Beauty Shops Open in Independent Living and Healthcare. The beauty salons in independent living and healthcare are open with restrictions–only one stylist and resident can occupy the salons at the same time and both must wear face masks. Reservations are required.
  • Group Activities Cancelled. Most scheduled group activities and events have been cancelled. The Tomlinson Wellness Center is operating with restrictions and reduced hours.

  • Increased Cleaning Standards. Housekeeping staff has stepped up the frequency of cleaning common areas. Residents and staff are being reminded to practice social distancing guidelines and the frequent washing of hands.
  • Temperature Checks at the Front Gate. On a 24/7 basis, everyone entering campus–residents, staff, approved vendors–must have their temperatures checked each time they enter campus. Staff and approved vendors with temperatures of 100 degrees or higher are turned away.
  • All Exterior Doors Locked 24/7. All entrances to common areas on campus are now locked 24/7 and can only be opened with Arbor Acres-issued FOBS and name badges. Only essential health care personnel have access to residents in the licensed healthcare areas.

What You Can Do


All Day, Every Day

  • Wash your hands often, with soap for 20-30 seconds, scrubbing all surfaces.
  • Stay home if you are sick or feel ill.
  • Always sneeze or cough into your elbow, not your hand.
  • Avoid touching your face – you may not even realize how often you do it, so enlist a friend or family member to signal when you’re doing it!
  • Use recommended social distancing protocols – remain six feet apart from others when in public or at work.

To Prepare

  • Have at least a few days’ food and supplies in your household in case you and/or members of your family get sick.
  • Disinfect commonly touched surfaces like countertops, doorknobs, phones and remote controls.
  • Practice good health habits: eat well, get plenty of sleep, exercise, stay hydrated.
  • Stay informed: Facts over imagination can go a long way in helping you prepare without panicking as well as accurately understanding the situation.
  • Make plans to address disruption to your normal routine.
