Stay At Home Order in effect through April 11, 2020:


Positive COVID-19 Virus cases remains at seven (7).

· Remember that only cases confirmed through testing or contact tracing are reported.

· Teller County does not currently have an active testing site due to a lack of resources to conduct testing.

· Testing is being completed only on hospitalized cases, healthcare workers, and first responders, and there are likely more cases in Teller County.

· First and foremost, STAY AT HOME.

· If you have symptoms of the COVID-19 Virus, including fever, respiratory (cough, shortness of breath) SELF ISOLATE and CALL YOUR DOCTOR or a telehealth service. If your doctor determines testing is warranted, they will direct you to testing as appropriate.

· DO NOT call 911 or go directly to the hospital or emergency room unless it is a true medical emergency.
