Marquis at Hope Village COVID-19 outbreak resolved
Amid spiking cases of COVID-19 and the virus bringing uncertainty to the school year, there is some good news out of Canby.
Marquis at Hope Village Post-Acute Rehab senior care facility now has no active symptomatic cases of COVID-19, according to company spokesperson Heather Villanueva. She said all residents and staff are considered fully resolved per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
The Oregon Health Authority made it official in its weekly report ending Sunday, July 26, with Marquis Hope Village listed under resolved outbreaks.
The outbreak at the facility began in early June, when most cases were discovered, and lasted through most of July.
In total, 76 staff and residents tested positive for the virus — 33 of 38 residents and 43 of 100 staff members, according to the latest report from April Diaz, Marquis Companies vice president of clinical services.
Eleven died after having tested positive for COVID-19.
The virus spread outside the facility too, with the OHA reporting a total of 112 cases associated with the facility including family and other contacts.
Of all active and resolved outbreaks at care facilities in the state, the one at Marquis at Hope Village is the second-largest with 112 cases and tied for the third-deadliest with 11.
Fortunately, company staff managed to prevent the spread of the virus to any other part of the Hope Village campus. Zero staff and zero residents tested positive at the neighboring Marquis Assisted Living facility.
And now with zero active cases at the rehab facility, the Canby Marquis care homes can move forward, leaving COVID-19 behind.
