DALLAS, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Senior Living Corporation (the “Company”) (NYSE: CSU) has completed first, second and third rounds of COVID-19 vaccinations at all its communities. To date, 88% of residents are fully vaccinated with 90% of residents having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“We are very grateful that through our partnership with CVS Health, we have been able to administer no-cost, on-site vaccines to our employees and residents, and we are thrilled that so many of our residents are now fully vaccinated,” said Kimberly S. Lody, President and CEO. “The safety of our communities is always our top priority, and we believe the successful distribution of the vaccine is crucial to protecting residents and returning to normal daily activities. Now that our on-site clinics are complete, we will coordinate vaccine appointments and provide courtesy transportation for residents to obtain the vaccine at a local venue.”
While enhanced safety measures, such as health screenings, social distancing and mask wearing will remain in place for the near-term, many of the Company’s communities are now easing restrictions and allowing family visitation for fully vaccinated residents in accordance with CDC guidelines and state and local mandates. Visitors are screened and escorted directly to residents’ apartments and required to always wear masks while in the community.
"In the past month, our communities have been able to ease restrictions in a variety of areas, and inquiries for our senior housing and services have returned to pre-pandemic levels,” Lody continued. "March average occupancy in the Company’s 60 owned communities was 75.2%, and spot occupancy on March 31st was 76.7%."
New residents who are fully vaccinated do not have to quarantine upon move in and can take full advantage of all the amenities and activities currently offered by their communities. Unvaccinated residents must follow CDC and local health department guidelines regarding social distancing and other health and safety protocols.
