Optimizing safety through ongoing adaptation
COVID-19 Update - June 30, 2021
June 30, 2021
Dear Village at Belmar Community,
We are providing notice that we had an associate at Village at Belmar test positive for COVID-19 today. She is mildly symptomatic and is resting comfortably at home. This associate works in Memory Care.
We are contact tracing for this case and are asking those staff with close contact who are unvaccinated to isolate at home for the next 14 days.
As a result of this positive associate, we are required to test all associates and residents in the next two days, whether or not they are vaccinated. This will be completed through end of day tomorrow. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in getting this completed. We will need to conduct future tests at intervals determined by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) depending on these test results, either weekly or twice weekly until further notice.
We are not required to make any changes in dining, activities or visitations except for unvaccinated residents who were exposed to this associate. We will be contacting those family members individually. We may need to make some changes in the future if we have any additional positive cases. We will inform you if this is the case.
As always, 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 will notify you of any further changes.
If you have any further questions, please reach out to Village at Belmar’s Executive Director, Rebecca Norris, at (303)351-5455.
