St. Mary’s confirmed that several staff members tested positive for COVID-19

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) – St. Mary’s has confirmed that several staff members have tested positive for COVID-19.

They say the situation was “addressed quickly” and said they are continuing to cooperate with Mesa County Public Health and follow all CDPHH and CDC safety guidelines.

Mesa County Public Health could not confirm how many staff members are infected at this time. They said that they would not classify the incident as an outbreak because they do not know the source of the initial spread.

“It can be worker for worker as we all know. It is hard to determine if it is far from any one source because there can be many in one facility at any time. Whoever is infected, find out near Who were the contacts. We interview those people. If we consider them to be high risk, we isolate them, we prepare them for testing. We just make sure that the spread spreads to those initials. Do not proceed with matters, ”says Jeff Kuhr of MCPH.

We are working to learn more about this situation. Check back for updates.
