As of December 15, 2020, we have one new COVID-19 positive case. The two residents that previously tested positive for COVID 19 have recovered. We continue to test residents and staff twice a week due to outbreak status and the 2-week county positivity rate. If your loved one tests positive, we will notify you individually.
Our residents and staff safety continues to be our top priority. We will do everything we can to keep COVID-19 out of our building and are following all Colorado State Health Department and CDC guidelines.
We continue to screen all staff and follow stringent infection control practices. All residents who reside in the health center are assessed three times a day for an elevated temperature and COVID-19 symptoms. All residents who have tested positive since November have been asymptomatic, therefore we continue to encourage residents to wear masks and maintain a distance of 6 ft. from one another. We have also asked our residents to limit their movement throughout the building to help reduce the spread.
Please contact me with any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
