As hospitals are starting to schedule elective surgeries again, if I have an elective surgery, will I be quarantined?
Yes, if a resident does have an elective surgery performed, the resident will be quarantined upon his/her return to the community. Therefore, we encourage residents to delay elective surgeries for as long as safely possible.

Residents who leave the facility for other essential medical appointments (but are not hospitalized) will need to be placed on a 14 day quarantine after the outside appointment in order to monitor for signs/symptoms of infection.
How will Arcadia/15 Craigside know if I leave the property? Will I be required to let Arcadia/15 Craigside know where I am going if I do have to leave the property?
Residents must report to the Reception Desk when they are leaving the community and for what purpose. This will assist Management in correctly identifying which residents will be subject to quarantine and remind them (beforehand) that if they still choose to leave they will be quarantined.
Can I visit my family in their home?
At this time, residents are not to leave the community to visit family members in their homes. If they decide to visit, they will be subject to quarantine once they return to the community.
Can my family/friends drop things off for me? What is the procedure? Can I meet them at the front entrance?
Yes, family/friends are able to drop off items to a resident at both communities and are required to leave items with Parking or Security. The items will then be delivered to the resident. We prefer that residents do not meet family/friends at the front entrance.
Where do I leave things for family/friends to pick up from me?
If residents have items to be picked up by family/friends, items can be left with the Reception Desk.
