6/4/20 COVID-19 Update



Today’s Data Notes

We have received one positive PCR (saliva/nasal) case since Tuesday’s report. One additional outbreak location has been listed in Montrose County: Diaz Tile with six positive cases. More information on outbreak locations can be found here.

Today, the Montrose Board of County Commissioners approved a second variance application that was sent to the state. The variance application seeks to allow the following: an increase in facility use from 50 percent to 75 percent occupancy load and up to 175 persons in a building; post secondary institutions to increase classroom size; opening of bars at limited capacity–75 percent of occupancy load, not to exceed 50 people; and unlimited outdoor gathering size as long as social distancing and other public health interventions (availability of hand hygiene products, mask use within six feet, and frequent cleaning of common touch surfaces) are followed.
