Date: Thursday, March 19, 2020 Time: 6:00PM
At this point, Teller County Public Health and Environment has not been notified of any positive cases of COVID-19 in Teller County.
Restaurant Closure Order extended through April 30, 2020. This order has been expanded to include nonessential personal services facilities, horse track and off-track betting facilities statewide. Nonessential personal services include hair or nail salons, spas, and tattoo or massage parlors.
The Governor signed an executive order today temporarily suspending elective and non-essential surgeries and procedures to preserve important medical equipment, like personal protective equipment and ventilators, needed to combat COVID-19. The executive order is in effect from March 23 to April 14, with the exception of rural and critical access hospitals.
The Governor also issued an updated executive order for in-person contact regarding elections and operations in the Secretary of State’s Office. This includes the suspension of any in-person filings of forms, statements, applications or any other documents with the Secretary of State’s office.
Actions Taken Today:
• Continued to communicate the latest health orders, executive orders, and guidance to local entities.
• Closed Community Specimen Collection Site in Teller County due to lack of supplies.
Tip of the Day:
Even if you are self-isolating or self-quarantining, remember to practice good hygiene and social distancing. These two things are a good, common sense way to slow the spread of COVID19 and other illnesses. Stay well!
