Face masks are only required in the healthcare/licensed areas (Asbury Place, Strickland Place, and Arborview) if there is an active COVID case in those areas. It is noted at the top of Artist Central when masking is required in those areas. You may also be asked to wear masks at other times (for example, if you are working in a resident’s home and they have health issues.)

As soon are you know you have been exposed to COVID or start displaying symptoms of being sick, immediately put on a face mask and remove yourself from the facility. Contact your supervisor from outside the facility. Your supervisor will work with the Arbor Acres COVID team, who will let you know the next steps to take.
Remember that wearing a face covering, particularly a K-N95 or an N-95 mask, is the best way to protect yourself and others. COVID-19 is generally spread through the air (respirations).
Symptoms may include: fever or chills, cough, fatigue, headache, loss of taste/smell, sore throat, congestion, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, body aches, shortness of breath.
