COVID-19 Community Updates
We continue to align our policy updates with the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Maricopa Department of Health, and Arizona Department of Health.
Effective Monday, April 1, 2022, masks will be optional in our Independent Living settings. Visitors and staff will no longer be required to sign in and complete a health screening. The thermometers will still be available at the front desk for those who want to take their temperature.
Assisted Living & Skilled Nursing
Masks are still required in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities, regardless of vaccination status.
When visiting either one of these settings, masks must be worn at all times. In addition, visitors and staff who will be in the Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing buildings, will still be required to check in and complete a health screening before entry.
These policies are subject to change with or without notice, should an outbreak of COVID-19 reoccur, or updated guidelines change, further restrictions may be reinstated.
On August 18th, President Biden passed a COVID vaccination mandate for all skilled nursing facilities that accept Medicare or Medicaid/ALTCS. Christian Care Fellowship Square must comply with the mandatory vaccine directive.
Christian Care offers free COVID vaccinations to staff who have not been vaccinated, and we provide booster vaccines as well. Employees should speak with their supervisor or the campus Human Resources Director for more information and schedule an appointment.
Monitoring Community Levels
The CDC's COVID-19 Community Level guide provides a county view of the current COVID-19 infection rate which they divide into three levels: low, medium, and high. This information helps communities and individuals make decisions about prevention strategies, based on their local infection rates and their unique needs. You can use the CDC's "COVID-19 County Check" tool below, to see the community levels and prevention steps by county.
