Colorado Guidance for Home Care Visits

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has released the latest public health orders and guidance on indoor visits at home care facilities that serve the elderly and disabled. The state states that the new guidance will enable indoor visits with enhanced safety measures.

If the weather permits, the facility should continue outdoor visits if residents are available. Indoor visits by family and friends are now permitted at facilities that meet all of the following criteria:

  • You must be in a county with an average positive rate of less than 10% for two weeks determined using the COVID-19 dial dashboard.
  • Ongoing weekly COVID-19 surveillance tests should be conducted as required by all staff and residents. Surveillance tests are done to identify the presence of COVID-19 in people before the onset of symptoms of the disease. Surveillance testing is an important tool for stopping the spread of COVID-19 in facility settings.
  • You must not have experienced a current outbreak of COVID-19, nor have you had any other ongoing infections such as influenza or norovirus.
  • You need to maintain a 14-day supply of all the personal protective equipment you need.
  • Proper staffing should be maintained and continuous training should be provided with the latest COVID-19 prevention protocol.

The Public Health Order also said that the following groups had to be allowed to enter the facility with safety precautions.

  • Essential healthcare service providers (doctors, hospice, home care staff in all areas, and other types of medical and non-medical healthcare and services).
  • Religious movement.
  • Adult protection service.
  • Long-term care ombudsman.
  • Designated support personnel (screening required and tests may be provided).
  • Compassionate care visit.
  • Emergency medical and service personnel (no screening or testing required, no delays in response or job performance access).

“The updated guidance balances the need to be as safe as possible in the highest-risk facility with the need for visits. Visits are important to the health and well-being of those serviced by the facility. We are careful because we know it is, and we will closely monitor and respond to the situation, “said Randy Kaikendal, director of the Heath facility and EMS department. CDPHE.
