COTTONWOOD ¬ Spectrum Healthcare has conducted contact tracing to identify any other people who may be at risk of exposure after two staff members tested positive for coronavirus last week, according to April Rhodes, Spectrum CEO, on Tuesday.
“All who were, or may have been, at risk of exposure have been notified, offered testing and are quarantined as per the CDC recommendations,” explained Rhodes.
However, she said the risk to individuals is low to anyone that was on site at Spectrum last week.
“It is out of an abundance of caution that we made the decision to limit in-person services at our main campus and Sedona location,” she said.
The main campus buildings are open this week for walk- in clients, she said, but they are suggesting people contact their main number at 928-634-2236 for assistance and scheduling rather than coming in person.
Our other locations in Cottonwood, Camp Verde, and Prescott are open normal business hours.
“We will update you as new information becomes available,” Rhodes said. “At this time we must focus our efforts on ensuring that our patients continue to receive much needed care and services.”
Rhodes did not say what positions the staff members held at Spectrum.
On Monday, Spectrum released the statement: “So out of an abundance of caution and care for our patients and staff, services scheduled this week at our Main Campus (8 E. Cottonwood St.) and at our Sedona Campus (2880 Hopi Drive) will all be provided virtually through telehealth,” according to essie J. Peters, FNP-BC, vice president of strategy.
