Christian Care Manors I and III - Independent Living
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.

Updated Mask Guidance
Effective Monday, May 24, 2021, face masks will be optional for fully vaccinated individuals on the Christian Care Phoenix campus. 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 - face masks are still required in those settings.
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.
Staff and residents who are not fully vaccinated are asked to continue to wear face masks inside, but are not required to wear them outside.
Please keep in mind, scientists are still learning about the COVID-19 vaccine and how it will affect the spread of the virus. According to the CDC's website, these recommendations can help individuals in the general public make decisions about daily activities after they are fully vaccinated.
For any of our residents who are interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine, and need assistance getting an appointment, please contact Ricky Dodds, Manors' HUD Service Coordinator at 602-443-5446 or Ricky.Dodds@christiancare.org and he will be happy to assist.
If you prefer to search online, we have included the CDC's Vaccine Finder tool in the left-side navigation, which will help locate vaccination sites near you. (Mobile users, this tool can be found at the bottom of this page).
Safety Precautions Remain 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.
The following safety precautions remain in place:
And most importantly...
Please stay home if you are feeling sick! If you are not feeling well and you would like to see a healthcare provider right away, you can contact Dispatch Health. They are a mobile urgent care service that will come to your apartment and assess your symptoms. They can be reached at 480-493-3444
Again, thank you so much for your cooperation during this unprecedented time. Our residents mean so much to us, we are truly blessed to have you as part of our community. Your support, your prayers, and your encouragement are so appreciated.
