COVID-19 UPDATES & FAQ

We thank you for your patience over the last couple of months. The health and safety of our residents is important. We recognize that resuming normal operations will need to be executed in phases to allow flexibility in resuming daily functions. Please remember that everyone has a different comfort level in regards to the timeline of reopening the state, Spectrum is no exception.
 
The Spectrum reopening plan is being coordinated with federal/state/county health organizations and their requirements and recommendations. The Board of Directors and Management are closely monitoring government policy changes, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, government mandates, and public health advancements and will continue to make changes as necessary or appropriate to the Association's protocols and procedures.

What is the COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS) describes the Coronavirus Disease 2019, or COVID-19, as a new respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, including coronavirus 229E, NL63, OC43, or HKU1. Patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnoses.

How can I help protect myself from COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses?

The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS) encourages all residents to practice the following preventative recommendations to protect themselves from COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
