6/9/20 COVID-19 Update



Today’s Data Notes

We have received nine positive PCR (saliva/nasal) cases since Thursday’s report. At this time, the county has not heard back from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment regarding the second data-driven variance. As a reminder, the variance request is driven by the county’s data–the overall community prevalence is low and the county’s testing capability is strong. When the county is informed of the decision, the public will be made aware of the changes. Lastly, the CDPHE has released the sixth version of Public Health Order 20-28; it is available here.
