Coronavirus outbreak reported at Louisville mental health clinic

A coronavirus outbreak was recently reported at a mental health clinic in Louisville.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment releases COVID-19 outbreak data every Wednesday.

A COVID-19 outbreak was identified at Centennial Peaks Hospital December 8, according to CDPHE data. The outbreak included three cases of patients and seven cases of staff.

Kelly Grape, director of business development for Centennial Peaks, confirmed the outbreak at the facility. She said any patient who tested positive in the clinic should be isolated in passive airflow rooms that prevent air inside the room from being pushed into the hallway or into a different room.

“We are doing our best,” she said. “Mental health is really hard on people right now, and we want people to continue to have access to mental health care.”

Greeb said all staff at the clinic have been vaccinated and added that all new patients are being tested for COVID-19 before they are admitted.

According to state data, no other outbreaks have been reported at the centenary peaks.

Ten outbreaks of COVID-19 previously reported in Boulder County are still active.

The outbreak identified in October at Longmont Community Treatment Center was resolved on December 9 and included 15 resident cases and one employee case, according to CDPHE data. It initially included six cases of COVID-19 in the population.
