At University Park Care Center, residents are – and have always been – our highest priority.
As of June 1, six patients and two associates from University Park Care Center have tested positive for COVID-19.
The residents are isolated and receiving care in our facility. The associates are recovering at home and will not return to work until strict guidelines from the CDC are met.
Prior to these positive cases and continuing now, we have been following all CMS, CDC and state and local health department guidelines concerning COVID-19. Our associates are being diligent on practicing proper hand hygiene and the use of personal protective equipment. Every associate is also screened when they arrive for work.
These guidelines also place restrictions on visitors, family members and vendors. We have posted signage on our doors with information on COVID-19.
A federal COVID-19 infection control focused survey was conducted on-site in May 2020 and no deficiencies were cited. We continue to work in partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the local health department and follow their guidance as provided.
