Willow Winds 100% negative on coronavirus
Willow Winds Assisted Living in Denver has tested 100% negative for the coronavirus according to Director Cheri Crawford.

“We are so very fortunate to be able to report these results,” Crawford said, “and would like to share the good news with the community.”

Crawford reported that all of the tenants were tested May 27 on-site by the nurse; and staff members were tested in Waverly the same day.

Willow Winds is in Phase 1 of the Governor’s plan to reopen long term care facilities. Phase 1 includes:

• Taking vitals at least once a day on all tenants and watching for signs and/or symptoms of COVID-19.

• Screening all staff at the beginning and end of their shift for temperature and other symptoms

• Restricting visitors

• Putting all tenants who leave for necessary appointments in a 14-day quarantine for the safety of all who live at Willow Winds

“We offer socially distanced activities, virtual family visits, and many other ‘appropriate’ activities to keep tenants healthy mentally, physically and emotionally,” Crawford said. “We had a car parade on June 18 in Denver for the community to do a drive-by parade to show support.

“Hopefully we can move to Phase 2 soon to allow for some easing of restrictions,” Crawford concluded.
