Reported incidents of a known case of COVID-19 on the GVR campus

This information is intended to supplement the Pima County Contact-Tracing Program. This is not a count of cases; often, one individual is involved in multiple incidents listed below. If you were potentially exposed to one of the following cases, please refrain from using GVR facilities (and consider self-quarantine) until you have consulted with a health professional. If you become ill with COVID-19, PLEASE report your campus activities to hotline@gvrec.org as soon as possible, so we may alert others. GVR will not share the names of any involved person unless so compelled by health authorities.

By exercising caution, the Green Valley community escaped significant infection rates throughout the summer and early fall. Now, as travelers arrive and activity increases, and we all grow weary of precautions, cases are appearing on the campus.

Please consider self-quarantining for fourteen days after travel. The CDC states: “You may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can be contagious without symptoms and spread the virus to others. You and your travel companions…pose a risk to your family, friends, and community for 14 days after you were exposed to the virus.”  GVR staff are required to self-quarantine for 14 days after returning from travel.

 

All health authorities advise that those at risk of significant illness—those over age 65 and those with underlying health concerns—limit their public exposure.

When someone tests positive for COVID-19, the ordering doctor or lab shares the test results with public health officials so they can begin a case investigation. An investigator may call the person who tested positive for COVID-19 to collect information about their illness and to discuss anyone they spent time with (their “contacts”). Once a person has identified their contacts, contact tracers will notify contacts of their exposure to COVID-19. Public health case investigators and contact tracers will NEVER release the name of the person who tested positive for COVID-19, or leave a voicemail with sensitive information about exposure to COVID-19.

If you get a call from “AZ HEALTH” (602) 675-8558, or your local health department, PLEASE answer the call. During tracing calls, contacts are asked if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, and if symptoms are reported, public health will provide recommendations and additional follow-up.

Steps GVR is taking to protect the members, staff, and wider community: 

  • Social distancing is required at all times outside of brief moments in swim lanes and passageways-Properly-worn masks are required with few exceptions outdoors, and zero exceptions indoors (read the full mask policy HERE)-Occupancy limits have been sharply reduced in most spaces
  • High-risk shared fixtures and resources have been taken off-line (drinking fountains, showers, coffee service, etc.)
  • Sanitization procedures have intensified, both in frequency and scope
  • Guests are not currently permitted
  • Socials and partner dancing have been suspended
  • Spaces that are available for classes, meetings, and presentations are pre-set with limited seating six feet apart, so that staff can focus on sanitizing spaces instead of resetting them to group specifications
  • Clubs with dedicated spaces have worked with staff to develop protocols to ensure the above rules are enforced, and also to ensure frequent sanitization occurs
