  • Vaccinations have begun

    Vaccinations have begun

    sleeve up campaign logoThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers Atria residents a top priority and has recommended that each individual state include residents among the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The first vaccines were administered starting on December 21 and clinics will continue through April. In addition, Atria now requires that all employees receive both rounds of vaccinations by May 1st. This is a critical milestone in the "Sleeve Up Atria" initiative, which is designed to vaccinate more than 20,000 residents and almost 12,000 employees across 25 U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces over the next several weeks.

  • Timely testing

    Timely testing

    With support from Mayo Clinic Laboratories, we have administered nearly 150,000 COVID-19 tests to employees, residents and third parties working in Atria communities. We continue to perform 4,000 to 5,000 tests a week, with a turnaround time of three to four days for results - faster than the national average.

  • Prepared with PPE and sanitizer

    When most of the country was experiencing PPE shortages, we worked with suppliers and chartered planes to ensure our communities had the supplies needed to follow safety protocols. We formed key partnerships to make our own gowns, hand sanitizer and hand soap to help keep supplies stocked.
