  • Strong from the start

    Strong from the start

    When COVID-19 hit, Atria hit the ground running. Atria's senior management team rushed to escalate safety protocols in communities and, in many cases, was ahead of state and local regulators. What's more, our response plans continue to meet or exceed guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • Fully vaccinated

    Fully vaccinated

    As a strong supporter of vaccination, we are proud to report that, as of July 1, 2021, our residents and employees are 99% vaccinated. We're excited to begin loosening some of our safety protocols – including increasing the number of visitors at a time and larger resident gatherings.

  • Vigilantly prepared

  • An ongoing commitment

    An ongoing commitment

    According to the CDC, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized every year with flu-related complications. Older adults are especially vulnerable, which is why Atria is committed to helping residents stay healthy during flu season.

  • Prevention is key

    Prevention is key

    Getting vaccinated and boosting one's immune system are the best ways to fend off the flu. Our nutritious food options and daily exercise classes help residents stay active and fit. We also provide local transportation to doctors' appointments, conduct flu shot clinics in our communities and encourage everyone to get vaccinated.

  • Protective protocols

    Protective protocols

    These tips can help prevent the spread of flu for everyone:

    • Frequent handwashing
    • Covering mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing
    • Avoiding close contact with people who appear to be ill
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
    • Get plenty of sleep
    • Stay hydrated
    • Maintain physical activity
    • Stay home when sick - the flu can spread up to 72 hours after symptoms have ended
