We have developed some guidelines on Celebrating Thanksgiving Safely, which can be easily applied to any holiday or other event. We strongly encourage you not to celebrate in person with those outside your immediate household, and to find creative ways to connect with your loved ones remotely. 

Because circumstances vary from community to community, your Executive Director or Housing Administrator is the best source for the most recent updates and recommendations. Thank you for your patience during this very difficult time. 

We provide regularly updates about any COVID-19 cases affecting our communities here.  

Our communities have begun to receive vaccination clinics through their pharmacy partners, with more scheduled throughout the next two months. LeadingAge has a page of COVID-19 vaccine information and resources on their website here. The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care Medicine has also created a Q & A document, which we have posted on our website here.

We  strongly encourage all residents to get a flu shot. The flu vaccine is available now and covered by most insurance, usually with shopping discounts. Find out Where You Can Get A Flu Vaccine or contact your community or healthcare provider.

Covia will provide a weekly update that should be distributed to your mailbox or by email each Friday. (We are posting them on the day before Christmas Day and New Years Day, due to the holidays.) Our most recent update is here.

As of May 15, all residents are still under the State of California’s Shelter In Place order, issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom on March 19, 2020. As stated on the California Coronavirus Response Website covid19.ca.gov, “Everyone is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. If you go out, keep at least 6 feet of distance.” However, depending upon the rate of infection in the surrounding county, communities can offer opportunities for in-person visits. These plans vary depending on the county and the community, so please abide by your community’s leadership regarding visitors.

If you leave your home, please wear a mask or cloth face covering, even if you are still within the community, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and other people who are not part of your household, wash your hands frequently, and monitor yourself for any of the symptoms of COVID-19. If you have symptoms or other health concerns, please contact your Resident Health Services or health care provider. 

Please be aware of phone, mail and email scams during this time. Scammers are pretending to be individuals (often posing as your “grandchildren or friends”) who wants to send resources to healthcare workers. See this flyer for further advice on how to protect yourself against scammers. 

Covia has set up an email inbox at C19info@covia.org where you can reach the COVID-19 Incident Command Center with your questions, comments, or concerns. Please contact us and we will respond as soon as we can.
