Attn: Pacifica Senior Living Residents, Families, Staff, and Loved Ones

Pacifica Senior Living is happy to announce that all restaurant-style dining and social activities will resume in accordance with local guidelines. We continue to focus on resident care and safety, while ensuring our residents have access to the services and amenities they are accustomed to. Our policies and procedures during this period have remained constant and are outlined below.

Ensuring the health and well-being of our residents and employees remains our first priority, and with the new COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus, we are following all recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • For the safety of our residents all guests are discouraged from entering our communities.
  • We are conducting virtual tours for new potential residents and their families.
  • Staff and residents are being screened, including having their temperatures taken daily.
  • We are conducting additional screening and on-site testing for new residents to ensure they have not been exposed to COVID-19 or have visited affected areas.
  • Encouraging family and friends to conduct virtual visits and call frequently to stay connected with their loved ones. 

Additional protocols include:

  • We are encouraging staff and residents to practice social distancing.
  • We are following all recommended safety precautions by the CDC and state and local health departments regarding personal protection equipment.
  • All staff and essential visitors required to enter the community must enter through the main entrance for screening and safety protocols.
  • Heightened focus on disinfecting and cleaning common areas and high-touch areas like doorknobs, elevator buttons, faucets, and handrails.
  • Reinforcing COVID-19 screening and disinfection control training for all employees.

Our residents' health and safety is always our top priority, and we thank you in advance for helping to support us in our company-wide efforts to keep our community COVID-19-free.
