Arizona is Making Progress!
Arizona has reached several important public health benchmarks in the fight against COVID-19: ten weeks of declining COVID-19 cases, a state-wide mass distribution of the vaccine, and hospitalizations are at their lowest level since the beginning of October 2020. As a result of this progress, Governor Ducey announced updates to the state’s COVID-19 measures, including guidelines for events, businesses and local ordinances.

COVID Vaccine Update
CVS returned to the Phoenix campus on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 16th and 17th to complete the final dose of vaccines. Our campus is now 90% immunized!
At this time, we have no plans to hold another vaccine clinic on campus. State-wide, vaccine appointments have been opened to all individuals over the age of 16, and are now available at select pharmacies. For any of our campus residents who have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine, and need assistance getting an appointment, one of our Social Service Coordinators will be happy to assist.
Safety Precautions Still in Place
While we are excited and optimistic about all of this good news, we are not letting our guard down. We will continue to adhere to the best practices and safety protocols developed according to the CDC, Arizona Department of Health, and the Maricopa County Department of Health to help prevent any future spread of COVID-19.
Health officials are still learning how effective the vaccine is against spreading COVID-19. Even if you or a loved one have been fully vaccinated, the CDC continues to recommend following basic prevention steps. As we have stated from the very beginning, the health and safety of our residents, their families and our staff is our top priority.
The following safety precautions will remain in place across the Phoenix campus:
Most importantly, please do not visit if you are not feeling well!
