5/13/20 Daily Update


Montrose County Public Health has one new case to report today and 11 negative cases. Today, Montrose County Board of Health and Montrose Board of County Commissioners submitted a variance application to the state requesting limited capacity openings of restaurants, churches, and gyms. That application is available here. As a reminder, it is an application for a variance and still requires approval from the state. Businesses and residents should continue to follow state guidelines.

Montrose County School District (MCSD) will continue to offer weekday meal pick-up through July 31. Starting June 1, meal service will be consolidated to two campuses, Montrose High School, and Olathe Elementary School, and all MCSD families and students may continue to pick up a lunch and snack from 11:00-1:00 Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).

We all play a part in helping stop community spread and reducing the number of cases of COVID-19 in the county, and we can do that by washing our hands, limiting social interactions, maintaining social distance, and wearing a mask when in public.
