We remain committed to sharing information with you regarding the COVID-19 situation and
all the precautionary measures enacted to prevent any spread of the virus at our
community. Due to rapidly increasing prevalence of COVID-19, Arbors will enter “High-Risk”
Stage, effective Wednesday, November 18th.
These measures are in place if county prevalence rises to 25 cases per day per 100,000 over a
14 day period in the county. Last Thursday, the county stood at 23.6 for the 14-day average. In
only four days, the county has risen to 37.1 cases per day per 100,000.
Per the Department of Public health, the rapid surge of COVID-19 cases has reached red-alert
status in 100 of Connecticut’s 169 cities and towns, including the Manchester.
The Department of Public Health recommends that all people who are living in red-alert
communities avoid gathering with non-household members, limit trips outside the homes, and
cancel indoor events. In addition, towns are encouraged to cancel public events, and organized
groups should cancel indoor activities.
In response, the following changes will go into effect beginning as of Wednesday, 9 am
– visitors will not be permitted in apartments (except end of life situations). Visits can be made
via our chat window located in the gathering center by appointment only.
– residents will be given a questionnaire after leaving the campus and may be subject to
protective precautions based on their outing.
We understand that these precautions will be evaluated on a weekly basis and will be lifted as
soon as guidelines permit and will be re-evaluated weekly.
