Eskaton continues to follow the CDC and California Department of Public Health guidance related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and well-being of everyone associated with Eskaton remains our primary focus. We have experienced a small number of isolated positive cases in residents and staff with no outbreaks. On any given day, Eskaton has over 5,000 residents and employees in Northern California, so we do believe that adherence to the protocols can be effective with everyone’s cooperation. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
New Specialty Program at Eskaton Care Center Fair
On April 20, 2020, Eskaton Care Center Fair Oaks opens a Specialty Program for older adults in stable condition with confirmed positive COVID-19 test results. This temporary program will allow residents to recover with the assistance of healthcare professionals prior to returning home, rather than remain in the hospital. This program is a self-contained unit with no cross-over of staff, residents and services into other areas of the center. All required protocols and precautions are being implemented to meet the needs of this vulnerable population. We are proud of our team members who have risen to the occasion to work in this much-needed specialty program.

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.
