Routt County records 7th COVID-19 death, surpasses 100 positive cases

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Routt County officials announced late Wednesday afternoon that a seventh person had died of COVID-19 related complications.

The death was of an elderly resident at The Haven, an assisted living facility in Hayden. In the last week, The Haven had recorded multiple positive cases of COVID-19, with two more confirmed Wednesday bringing the total to seven.

“The Haven wishes our deepest condolences to the family affected by this loss and we will hold the deceased resident in our hearts and minds,” said Adrienne Idsal, director of The Haven.

The Haven is owned and operated by Northwest Colorado Health.

“On behalf of the entire team at Northwest Colorado Health, we send our love and well wishes to the family and loved ones of this resident, including the extended Haven family. We are deeply saddened by this loss,” said Stephanie Einfeld, chief executive of Northwest Colorado Health.

Two additional community COVID-19 cases, other than those reported at The Haven, were also reported Wednesday in Routt County. That brings the total cases to 102.

The two new cases were confirmed in a male in his 50s and a female in her 50s. They are now recovering in isolation.
