We wanted to let you know the actions we are taking at Mesa Springs Independent Living to protect our residents. We are currently experiencing (rolling power outages of more than 18 hours at a time, and we have had some of our pipes freeze and burst and delayed food vendor deliveries). We remain without power today except for about two hours a day.
I am so sorry to have to share with you that we have a resident with COVID-19. This resident tested positive during the night on December 10, 2020 after attending the Christmas party. They are an active, engaged resident at Mesa Springs attending meals daily in the dining room. Due to the large number of people directly exposed, we have to consider that staff and residents have all been exposed. Effective immediately we have to go back into lockdown.
I am writing to let you know an individual contracted to provide services to residents within our community has tested positive for COVID. This individual and the residents the contractor served in our dining room are currently isolating until a return date can be determined following local health department and CDC guidance. To date, we have no residents or staff members that have tested positive for the virus.
