The Reutlinger Community continued response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Upon receiving interim guidance from the CDC in response to the coronavirus, The Reutlinger Community immediately complied and implemented a centralized COVID-19 company response team that has focused on the health, safety and well-being of our residents, their families, owners, administrators, operators, workers, volunteers, and medical care visitors.
We have implemented all required and recommended protocols as well as precautions, to create environments that support the prevention of infection spread, and to provide appropriate measures for social engagement and emotional well-being for our residents. We value our Healthcare Heroes and their passion, energy, persistence and care they provide each day to our residents.
We deliver communication updates twice per month to our residents and their families. We provide weekly communications to our staff via letter, phone or email. These communications are provided below for residential living, rehabilitation and skilled nursing. Virtual tours, and on-site visits, can be scheduled directly with loved ones by contacting our community.

Live Well at Home – Non-Medical Home Care
For Older Adults and their Families
For Clients and Caregivers
We continue to follow diligent infection control protocols in each of our communities per CDC and CDPH guidelines.
Protect yourself at home and in the community:
- Practice social distancing (6 feet or more distance from others) when possible. Stay away from anyone coughing or sneezing – particularly, if you do not know the person.
- Practice good hand washing/ hand hygiene frequently.
- If you are sick: Stay home and self-isolate if you have flu symptoms or a fever.
- If you are sick, call the physician, clinic or hospital before you visit them. Do not go to a clinic or hospital with symptoms without calling first – they will instruct you on the proper procedures.
- The CDPH and CDC now recommend the use of a cloth face covering when in public places to limit transmission of the virus.
