Coronavirus Update- New Expectations-Limits on QLO VisitsApril 10, 2020



Regarding HCPF expectations, limits and requirements of QLO visits
To family, guardians and visitors of our Quality Living Options residents: 
DDRC has implemented many safeguards to minimize the risk of exposure to and transmission of the virus, including staff screening, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting, the use of personal protective equipment such as facemasks and limiting visitors.

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) is requiring that all CCBs, including DDRC, now follow a more strict application and enforcement of Public Health Order 20-24, which states, in part, that “…all public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a residence are prohibited.”

Per HCPF:  “These new restrictions and orders mean that families, guardians and/or other natural supports will no longer be able to take members on community outings or visits outside of the residence unless the families, guardians and/or other natural supports choose to keep the person in their home for fourteen (14) day symptom free quarantine period prior to returning to the residence.” 
Thank you for your cooperation as we comply with the guidelines issued by our oversight agencies in the interest of health and safety. 

We hope you are doing well and staying healthy!
