COVID-19 Update: How we are protecting our senior living communities

At Era Living, the safety, health, and emotional well-being of our residents and staff is our top priority. We took swift, robust measures to protect our residents and staff when COVID-19 became an imminent threat in our state. We were at the forefront of testing broadly**, and our early efforts were lauded for averting an outbreak by UW Medicine researchers and a former CDC director. Learn more:

    - Tom Frieden, former CDC director
  • I am completely convinced that my being here has been my greatest safeguard. I don’t feel like I could be in a safer place.

    - Van, resident of The Gardens at Town Square
  • On March 6 the center’s administration, staff and residents instituted stringent infection prevention measures. These included physical distancing, in-room isolation with no communal meals or activities, visitor restrictions, exclusion of ill staff, and stricter hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting practices. All of these are now CDC guidelines for coronavirus prevention in independent and assisted living communities.
