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.

Update on Mask Guidance
Effective Monday, May 24, 2021, face masks will be optional for fully vaccinated individuals at Christian Care and Fellowship Square Phoenix. This only applies to our independent living buildings, whether gathering inside or outside, or in large or small groups.
This does NOT apply to our Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facilities - masks are still required in these settings at all times.
Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two weeks after the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Safety Precautions Still in Place
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.
