Call Center Hours
Starting tomorrow, 3/25, the call center will be running from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday-Saturday, closed on Sunday.
Today’s screening site will be at the Crested Butte Community School back parking lot from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM.
Delivery Assistance Hotline
We have now staffed a new call center for folks needing help with food and pharmaceutical deliveries. We ask that if you are healthy and able to pick up your own groceries to please do so. This opens up City Market’s online pick-up program for individuals who are at risk, over 60 years old, and/or symptomatic or otherwise self-isolating. Phones will be manned from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, 7 days a week. Call (970) 641-7959 if you need a volunteer to pick up the groceries you ordered through City Market’s Pick-up Program. Volunteers can also deliver prescriptions that are ready from the City Market or Walmart pharmacies. If you generally go to the Gunnison Country Food Pantry, you can call this hotline and order Food Pantry boxes. They will also help answer any delivery type questions you may have.
Some Positive News
We are beginning to see symptom start date taper off. This coincides with the strict Public Health Orders. We applaud you as a community for self-isolating and slowing the spread of this virus. While we are on the right trajectory, we must continue to adhere to the Public Health Orders. Below is a breakdown of symptom start date for only self-reporting online.
Please self-report if you have any symptoms and encourage others to self-report so we can have the best information.
By the Numbers
As of 8:38 AM, we have 50 positive, 54 negative, and 49 pending tests. This document will be updated live with information.
There was some question about the discrepancy between the number of folks who have self-reported online and the total number of folks included in the map below. To clarify, the map is a combined dataset of self-reporting with symptoms + call center screenings – duplicate data. The attached map is from yesterday’s data. We will work to get a new one in the 6:00 PM update. These reports are NOT necessarily positive COVID-19 cases. We do know the flu and other respiratory illnesses are also spreading in our community. Folks could be self-reporting and actually have the flu or another type of respiratory infection. The forms allow Health and Human Services to monitor at risk individuals, model a possible surge to the healthcare system, and get a glimpse of where COVID-19 might be in our community.
For those businesses that are still allowed to operate under the Public Health Orders, we have created an additional infographic about the extra steps you must take in order to continue operating. This infographic can be found at the bottom of the Business Resources tab on our website. www.gunnisoncounty.org/covid19
