Cappella of Grand Junction Mandates COVID-19 Vaccine for Team Members

Community Life
Team members share why they got their vaccinations.

Posted: September 2, 2021

Monday night the Colorado Department of Health and Environment mandated that most health care workers in the state be fully vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus by October 31st. This included hospital assisted living and skilled nursing workers amongst others. All team members (other than those approved for exemption due to medical or religious reasons) at Cappella of Grand Junction including volunteers and business partners working in our communities must receive the full vaccine series for the COVID-19 virus by Sunday, October 31st.

Highly contagious variants, including the Delta variant, are exploding across our region and the United States, and COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are rising again. Data from CDPHE indicates that unvaccinated people are most vulnerable to infection and passing the virus to others. Each time a positive case is identified in a community, the community goes into “outbreak” status, which then significantly impacts the quality of life of residents, families, and other team members.

We cherish each team member and their vital contribution to Cappella of Grand Junction. We appreciate their commitment and loyalty to CLC during this most challenging time. We care for the most at-risk citizens and are in full support of the state mandate which is an essential step to protect our community including residents, team members, and their families such as young children or others that are unable to be vaccinated at this time.

Team members are required to review the mandate policy and process in our online learning system and managers will receive training to support their teams. The human resources team is poised and ready to answer any team member’s questions. The CDPHE mandate specifies a two-step vaccination verification process, the first does must be received by September 30th and the second dose by October 31st.  Team members will need to provide proof of the first dose by Thursday, September 30th.

We are doing our best to accommodate personal choices and individual opinions while taking the necessary steps to protect our communities and comply with this new state mandate. One of our central values is We! Care for Each Other; this value is displayed countless times each day in countless ways. Now is the time to show we care for each other by becoming vaccinated.

We encourage everyone to become vaccinated, as it is the best defense, we have in protecting our community.

We appreciate the continued support, patience, and love shown to each other as we continue to navigate each new phase of this global pandemic.
