Daily COVID-19 Update for December 4, 2020

The Masonic Homes of California and Acacia Creek Retirement Community care deeply about all residents, staff, and their families.  To keep you informed about the status of COVID-19 on our campuses, we are providing this daily update on the status of any testing for our residents and staff members.  These numbers reflect data as of 10am on the reporting day.  We will update these figures by noon each day. Please check back for the latest information.

As of the morning of December third, three positive COVID-19 tests have been confirmed in residents at our Union City campus in the last 24 hours.  The residents are quarantining in their apartments and showing no symptoms, but are being monitored throughout the day.  The families have been notified.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Rapid testing and contact tracing is underway for residents and staff who may have been exposed.  In addition, all residents are quarantined in their apartments and essential services are being provided to them to help them quarantine safely.  For now, access to our campus is limited to only essential staff, and visitations are postponed to stop the spread of the virus.  As cases surge in California, keeping our residents and staff healthy is of the utmost priority, and we will let you know when this quarantine has been lifted.

Please note that starting on June 9, 2020, all staff members, vendors spending significant time on our campuses, and residents in our Lorber skilled nursing facility in Union City are being tested weekly for COVID-19.  On August 10, all Acacia Creek staff and residents will begin being tested as well.  Some residents and staff have been tested more than once.
