The Springs Living COVID-19 status as of April 12, 2021
We’re committed to transparency with publicly sharing our COVID-19 results as we believe it demonstrates the effectiveness of our infection control protocols that we started putting in place on February 28, 2020.

The Springs Living is one of the safest places for older adults to live, thanks to our strategies to fight COVID-19 since February 2020. Data shows we have an extremely low infection rate for residents (under 2%) compared to senior living communities nationwide*(around 5%). Living in a community relieves the burden of isolation and grocery shopping, while providing professional support in-house for medical needs, housekeeping, and cooking.

Our COVID-19 Strategies
Even before COVID-19 reached the United States, we vowed to stay ahead of it, knowing that would be the best way for us to protect our residents and staff. Our approach against the virus was a lot like fighting a forest fire ignited by a lightning strike: We enacted diligent monitoring and quick containment to extinguish hot spots before they could spread. We started implementing our infection control procedures February 28, 2020, evolving our protocols steadily. With 95% of our residents fully vaccinated as of March 18, 2021, those precautions are being gradually eased.
Detect & Defeat
Using surface testing, air testing, and daily screenings of residents and staff, we detect the virus early -- up to five days before anyone displays symptoms.
Hold the Line
Having implemented thorough precautionary measures, we strive to keep the virus out of the community by frequent sanitizing, mask wearing, and social distancing.
We’ve worked with infection control doctors, university and government agencies, and our professional senior living network to collaborate, participate in studies, and secure needed supplies in our common fight against the virus.
The Springs Living has a 24/7 task force created to help residents and employees during this outbreak of COVID-19. Check back often for updates.
