Dear Village at Belmar Community,
We’re providing you an update regarding our community Covid-19 status. Yesterday, we had an associate who was exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms. Yesterday we conducted a rapid test and this associate tested positive. The associate is now recovering at home. We have had no additional residents displaying symptoms or testing positive and the recent-positive tested resident that was treated at the hospital returned to the community yesterday and will be cared for by the Staffing Bubble team.
Testing will continue this week to ensure that we are immediately aware of any additional residents or associates who may be positive but asymptomatic. We will continue to provide updates to you throughout the week and will also keep the Hotline updated.
All outdoor visitation for the community continues to be on hold and we will conduct window visits for both Assisted Living and Memory Care. The Assisted Living dining room will remain closed and residents are being encouraged to remain in their apartments unless they are being escorted to participate in a window visit with the proper PPE. We are narrowing the definition of allowable essential workers and will only be giving access in emergent situations, as determined by the clinical team and Executive Director of the community.
We have been in continued close communication with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Jefferson County Health Department and are following their direction and protocols, as well as those of our Medical Consultant, Dr. Gagandeep Singh. We have a large PPE order being shipped to ensure that we are prepared for any needs that arise.
Please remember that you can always check our Hotline for regular updates and those can be heard at (720) 545-0363.
If you have any further questions, please reach out to Village at Belmar’s Executive Director, Rebecca Norris, at (303) 351-5455.
