Paradise Valley Estates COVID-19 Information
Updated Monday, October 19, 6:00 p.m.

Paradise Valley Estates (PVE) has been working with NorthBay Healthcare, LeadingAge, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Solano County and State of California public health departments since March 11, 2020 to implement preventive protocols, safety practices and contingency plans to prevent community spread.

The State of California stay at home order remains in place but has been modified to allow reopening of some businesses. Paradise Valley Estates residents may leave campus without self-quarantining upon return. Masks must be worn by residents when outside of their residences and by any permitted visitors to campus at all times.

Cases, Screening & Testing
As of October 19, zero residents have tested positive for COVID-19 and 17 team members have tested positive. Contact tracing, self-isolation and follow-up testing protocols have prevented community spread.

Permitted visitors and team members must undergo a wellness screening to enter the campus. A team member or resident in direct contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19 will self-isolate and complete weekly testing for two weeks to determine exposure.

In June 2020, PVE completed both state-mandated COVID-19 testing for team members and optional testing for residents and all tests were negative. Surveillance and exposure testing for PVE team members continues as directed by the departments of public health. Recent COVID-19 testing from August 22-September 10, 2020, is as follows:

Surveillance Testing

  • Residents: 2
