Asbury COVID-19 Communication Hub

Asbury Communities operates eight continuing care retirement communities in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee serving approximately 4,300 residents and employing 2,800 associates. Ensuring that we provide a safe and healthy environment for those who work and live at our communities is our highest priority. Please click the Prevention Measures button for detailed information about our early and ongoing prevention and response measures.

Our journey through this unprecedented challenge is continually evolving. It is led by the COVID Incident Command Center at the Asbury Support and Collaboration Center which works collaboratively with community leadership teams, and which includes highly experienced clinicians from acute, post-acute, and senior living backgrounds, and operational experts. We are proud of the incredible work being done by our associates and grateful for the support we are receiving from our many residents and family members as we work through this pandemic together.

Important Messages

  • See our Communications Archive at bottom of page.
  • Visitation continues to be suspended at all of our communities across all levels of living as required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Currently Asbury has no plans to lift visitation restrictions or remove protocols for screening or infection control that have been put into place. Emerging state plans for re-opening businesses do not change this. We will continue to be guided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CMS, and state health departments, and exercise an abundance of caution.
