Douglas County COVID19 Update

The statewide Stay-at-Home Order is set to expire on Sunday, April 26 and Governor Polis has directed local public health officials to implement data-informed strategies at the local level that best meets the needs of local communities. Tri-County Health Department is working with other local public health agencies and its local partners to develop those strategies.

“While we want to minimize confusion for the public, reopening could look different for different communities based on the level of COVID-19 cases in that specific area,” said John M. Douglas, Jr., MD, Executive Director of Tri-County Health Department. “Many parts of the state do not have growing numbers of COVID-19 cases and it makes sense for them to open, but in the more densely populated counties in the metro area, opening too soon could be detrimental to keeping us healthy and open moving forward.”

We are studying current trends and will be reviewing the need to extend the stay at home order for two weeks until May 8th for specific locations that are still experiencing high numbers of people sick with COVID-19. A decision will be made by Sunday, April 26 on most appropriate steps to be taken to begin to slowly reopen our local businesses.

Regardless of whether the orders are extended, it will take every individual in our counties to continue to follow social distancing guidelines, staying at home as much as possible, wearing masks and practicing abundant personal hygiene and cleanliness to keep our communities healthy and economically viable.
