You can see our rating here: https://covid-19.acgov.org/data.   Because we are working with a frail population the facility is strongly encouraging a COVID test each week for visitors. You can complete to testing here at the facility on Mondays or Thursdays or you are welcome to use a lab in the buildings next door who are promising results within 24 hours.
