We are excited to announce that 19 of our 27 BeeHive Assisted Living Homes are currently in Green Status counties!
New Mexico's Department of Health has created a Red to Green Framework that is based on Test Positivity Rates. The following aims to help everyone better understand how that works and how that directly effects our residents, staff and ability to visit.
What is the Red to Green framework? (See NMDOH Website for additional Details)
In order to prevent and mitigate the effects of the spread of the virus, and to ameliorate the unsustainable resultant strain placed upon the state’s health care system and personnel, counties where the virus is more prevalent will operate under more restrictive public health measures. Likewise, counties where the virus has been or is being suppressed will operate under less restrictive measures. Counties will operate under one of three levels: Red, signifying very high risk; Yellow, signifying high risk; and Green, signifying medium risk.
Here is the updated Average Daily Case Rates and Test Positivity from the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH)

What does this mean for visits, tours and other activities in the BeeHive?
For the homes located in Green counties, we are able to coordinate outdoor visits, closed and open window visits. For all homes, compassionate care and end of life visits are allowed. Here is a summary based on the framework:
What does this mean for on-going testing?
We test based on the frequency prescribed in the following table based on the positivity rate reported in the past week. We monitor each county's positivity rate over other week and adjust the frequency of performing staff testing accordingly. If any staff member is exposed or is exhibiting symptoms they are tested and not permitted to work until they have a negative test result and are not exhibiting symptoms.
What does this mean for PPE and other Infection Control Guidelines?
Each BeeHive Home follows the following infection control guidelines per NMDOH:
