An employee who works in the call center at Arapahoe Basin has been prescribed to have a COVID-19 test by a physician after falling ill since working a shift last Saturday.

The test was scheduled for Friday. Results are expected to take at least 72 hours, according to A-Basin chief operating officer Alan Henceroth.

“We have been in direct communication with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment,” Henceroth wrote in a blog on the ski area’s web site. “Following their recommendations and in an abundance of caution, we are taking the following precautions: The employee and the four employees that worked directly with the employee are in self quarantine until we get the test results. The area where the employee worked was cleaned immediately after we became aware of the illness.

“As part of a larger effort, the Call Center and adjoining offices are being comprehensively cleaned a second time today. Further efforts include increased cleaning across the ski area especially in the Kids Center and Food and Beverage operations. We anticipate the Call Center and all ski area operations to be open Saturday.”
