Update:  4/25/2020

Our focus and highest priority at Covenant Living of Colorado is to maintain the health and safety of our residents and employees during the Coronavirus situation. And, our ongoing commitment is to provide our residents, family members and employees information on the status of our current situation.

We learned late yesterday (April 24) a patient who admitted from a local hospital to our Village Care and Rehabilitation Center tested positive with COVID-19. Upon recognition of symptoms, the individual was placed in isolation while awaiting those results. Since that initial testing, the individual no longer exhibits symptoms and has had two subsequent negative results and is doing well.

As a matter of protocol, we have been in contact with Jefferson County Public Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and are working closely with them regarding any additional guidance on infection control protocols in addition to those we already have in place. We are in the process of notifying all residents, families and employees and are available to answer any questions or concerns.

Any employees who were in direct contact are actively monitoring symptoms from the date of last exposure, per CDPHE guidance. For peace of mind, employees have been given the option to be tested at a local facility. 

In following our current guidelines and protocols, all employees coming to work each day are screened with health assessment questions and a temperature screening. If an employee, visitor or contractor fails in any area of the screening, they will NOT be allowed to enter.

We continue to monitor all residents and employees who may exhibit any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and, if necessary, ask that they reach out to their personal physicians for medical advice.  

We are taking all of the necessary steps in following infection control protocols. We have a community COVID-19 task force in place and we are in continuous contact with our Central Office COVID-19 task force that is providing us with additional information regarding guidelines, and cleaning and securing medical supplies.

Covenant Living Communities and Services continues to stay on top of the latest regarding the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) across the nation and in our local communities. To date, none of our communities have been directly impacted. 

However, due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus and in order to maintain a healthy community, we respectfully discourage all non-essential visits to our community. This request is for all individuals—including family members—as a preventive measure and precautionary step to protect our residents and staff until further notice.

Covenant Living is already following strict protocols and guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and local and state health departments. Our emergency response plans include everything from infectious control protocols, ensuring our health care employees providing care have adequate supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities, if necessary. In addition, we are reinforcing regular and thorough hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. 

It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel overseas or has any signs of illness. 

We pray for those impacted by the coronavirus in our country and for the safety of our residents, employees and their families. Together with your vigilance, along with planning and preparedness, we can maintain a safe and health community in which we live and work. 

Update: 3/4/2020

The safety of our residents, employees and visitors is a top priority and it is important that we remain vigilant in protecting our residents and staff to maintain a healthy community.

Covenant Living Communities and Services is paying extremely close attention to the coronavirus situation in our country and on the local level at each of our communities. We have assembled a task force to monitor this situation, remain educated on the latest information from health officials, and implement any plans we have in place that may become necessary to ensure the health and safety of all of our residents, employees, family members and visitors. Our Central Office has a readiness plan for any potential COVID-19 outbreaks, in addition to our already established emergency response plans. 

Our emergency response plans are developed following strict guidelines as recommended by local, state and national health officials. Those plans include everything from infectious control protocols, ensuring our health care employees providing care have adequate supplies to contingencies regarding dining services and activities, if necessary. In addition, we are reinforcing regular hand washing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and telling any employee who is sick to stay home. 

It is important we all remain vigilant and pay close attention to our own health and places we visit, in particular if any resident, employee or visitor has recently returned from travel overseas. 

We pray the Coronavirus situation across the world and here at home is short-lived and that the residents, employees, and their families of Covenant Living remain untouched. Together with your vigilance, along with our planning and preparedness, it will guide us to maintain a safe and healthy community in which we live and work.
