Attention: Blizzard Warning Urgent Change to the CDPHE LTC IP Training 3/13 & 3/14

TO: SNF, Long Term Care Facilities in Colorado 

FROM: Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE)

As I am sure, you are aware; blizzard conditions beginning tomorrow 3/13 will affect much of Colorado. Our priority is for the safety of those of you participating in the training as well as our staff who have spent countless hours preparing for your participation. The adverse weather conditions may significantly affect travel and potentially absenteeism at many of your facilities. With all things in mind, I feel it is in the best interest of all to cancel the training scheduled for this week and reschedule for a better time.

Next steps: we will work to identify a new time and training venue in the very near future. Please know that those of you who are already registered will be guaranteed a spot in the next training. We will also look for a venue that can accommodate those of you on the waitlist. Please watch for communication in the near future.

In the meantime, if you are interested in completing some online training in Infection Prevention, CDC has just released their training that you can access at the following web address: https://www.cdc.gov/longtermcare/training.html

I know that this may be an inconvenience for many of you and for that I am truly sorry. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you would like to discuss further.
