Assisted Living Communities
In light of the rising risks associated with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Utah Assisted Living Association has compiled important CDC & Health Department guidelines along with best practices being utilized by a number of Utah assisted living companies to support operators in their effort to protect their residents. These guidelines and information can be accessed using the google drive links below.
UALA is receiving daily updates from the Utah Department of Health, CDC, and industry experts to ensure that all pertinent information and guidelines are made readily available to assisted living providers throughout the state of Utah.
As always, please reach out to us if you have questions or need assistance. Thank you for all your efforts and dedication to protecting your precious residents and employees!
