Dear Village at Belmar Community,
As we near the end of January and a month with Omicron, I would like to personally say thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this time. We are pleased to say our test results from Monday, January 17th have revealed only 2 new positive cases of COVID.
We have had a total of 31 COVID positive associates and 3 residents since the beginning of our outbreak. All but two associates have returned to work, and we have no residents on isolation.
As a community, we will continue to test until we are receiving consistent negative test results from our weekly testing. Because of our current status, unvaccinated residents may not participate in group activities. For all residents, visitation should occur in the resident’s apartment and avoid common areas. We will be resuming dining services on January 24th, 2022.
Although visitation may continue according to guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) we encourage all families and friends to be very cautious in making the decision to visit. Because so many people are asymptomatic and can be contagious without realizing it, you may be unknowingly exposing your loved one to COVID. Please carefully consider the number of visitors as well as the frequency of visits. Families and friends who plan on visiting must ensure that they have not been exposed within the last 14 days to anyone with COVID. Anyone with even very mild symptoms such as a runny nose should reschedule their visit until they are fully recovered. Please do not visit after being exposed to large crowds and always wear a mask in public. We will continue to stay in close communication with the specialists at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and follow their direction and protocols. We will notify you as any changes are made. We appreciate your continued support.
If you have any further questions, please reach out to me at (303) 351-5455 with any questions.
Rebecca Norris, Executive Director
