5/6/20 Daily Update

TODAY’S UPDATE

Montrose County Public Health has three new cases to report today and nine negative cases. Public health is noting an increase in cases in younger age groups (20-29) and would like to remind the public that if they are feeling sick, please stay home. Do not go to work, do not go to the store, and do not visit family–while these are inconvenient steps, they will help save lives. 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.

If you have questions, the Montrose County Public Health info line is available at 970-252-4545 in both English and Spanish.

As always, please keep regular appointments with your primary care provider to keep chronic conditions under control. If you need emergency medical help, the Emergency Department at Montrose Memorial Hospital is a safe place to go for care. They have precautions to keep patients safe and skilled medical care for emergencies.
