At this point, Teller County Public Health and Environment has not been notified of any positive cases of COVID-19 in Teller County.
There are no current orders to Shelter-in-Place in Teller County.
Remember, NEVER open or respond to any email or text request to send money on-line or over the phone.
Social Distancing, Self-Isolation and Self-Quarantine:
Social distancing includes staying at least 6 feet away from other individuals and not attending any gathering of more than 10 people.
Self-isolation is for people who have symptoms of COVID-19 and means staying away from others until 7 days have passed since the symptoms began and until any fever has been gone for 72 hours and all other symptoms are improving.
Self-quarantine is for people who don’t have symptoms but are close contacts of people who have symptoms. It means staying away from others for 14 days to see if one becomes ill. People who become ill with COVID-19 symptoms (even early symptoms) while self-quarantining then start the self-isolation period.
