SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Public Health Department, in coordination with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), is investigating an outbreak of COVID-19 at Cornerstone Real Estate Rocky Mountains in Breckenridge. The company currently has two confirmed cases among its employees.
"We know how challenging the pandemic has been for our business community and we are sorry to see another impacted by COVID-19,” Summit County Public Health Director Amy Wineland said. "This outbreak demonstrates just how infectious the virus is and that even when you are following recommended physical distancing protocol and using proper PPE, employees can still get sick. For this reason, we are urging the community to be especially cautious right now.”
Cornerstone Real Estate Rocky Mountains is located in Breckenridge and serves the Summit County community. The two employees were tested for COVID-19 on Oct. 13 and Oct. 14, after developing symptoms. Public Health received the positive test results on Oct. 15 and Oct. 16.
Management at Cornerstone Real Estate Rocky Mountains had been extremely proactive in following all recommended Physical Distancing Protocol and Public Health guidelines including keeping employees and meetings with appropriate physical distance, diligently cleaning all surfaces, enforcing mask wearing, conducting symptom and temperature monitoring and logging on a daily basis, as well as installing an air purifier.
The outbreak investigation at Cornerstone Real Estate Rocky Mountains, including thorough contact tracing, remains in progress. Summit County Public Health’s contact tracing team is conducting an investigation of the positive cases’ close contacts. The positive cases have been placed in isolation, and all close contacts identified thus far have been placed under quarantine. As with any communicable disease investigation, this COVID-19 investigation will take time to complete.
