Updated: Friday, July 10, 2:55 p.m. MDT

At Columbine Manor Care Center, the safety and well-being of our residents are our highest priority. The safety and well-being of our associates [staff] and our community are also paramount considerations in every action we take.

As of June 25, we are pleased to announce that we are COVID-19 FREE! Our outbreak ended May 28.

Following the guidance of local and state health agencies, we are now accepting new residents. However, due to COVID-19 cases in the local community and the influx of tourists in our area, we are not currently allowing outside visitors, based on the recommendation of the local health department.

We are staying in consistent communication with the families of our residents and will keep them updated on any changes related to visitation. We always welcome their questions and contact. Even though visitation remains restricted, we’re happy to coordinate phone calls, video chats or window visits.

We are working closely with the Colorado Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the local health department to ensure we are taking the appropriate steps. We will continue to follow their guidance, along with guidelines offered by CMS and the CDC. Both the state and local health departments have been extremely supportive. We are thankful for their partnership. We also want to thank the community, families, residents and our staff for their support.

Joshua Finger, executive director
