Residents and Family Members,


The Delta variant continues as the primary variant identified in the state’s positive cases.  The last week in Jun 89% of identified positive cases tested for the Delta variant.  Looking at state data from 1 Jun – yesterday, there have been 20,061 positive cases with 143 deaths over this period.  Review of posted data for Pueblo County indicates 3% of the positive cases have been identified as the Delta variant with the primary variant being Alpha (this has been the primary in the county throughout this year).


As a reminder, whenever visiting residents a mask is required for both visitor and resident regardless of vaccination status (this is for both indoor and outdoor visits).  Our bi-weekly call with the state will be conducted today and we will monitor for any changes to the states/CDCs infection control directives.


Active outbreaks have reduced to 12 still active in the community with 3 of those being in health facilities/entities (2 new in the last two weeks).  The last identified outbreak was on 7/9 and at an assisted living.  Positives for Jul are 59 while the rolling average for positive results for individuals tested in the last 7 days, decreased from to 1.6 % from 7.2%.  Parkview Hospital hospitalizations related to COVID is currently 12 cases while St Mary Corwin has 0 COVID cases in their care.  Parkview reported occupancy at 191 while St Mary Corwin is reporting 39 for occupancy.  This leaves 55 available beds between the hospitals.
