5:00 PM 4/20/20 Update
If you are symptomatic, but otherwise ok, please self-isolate and self-report at www.gunnisoncounty.org/covid19
If you are symptomatic and worsening, please call the call center. 970-641-7660
We ask that you not show up to the screening site until you call first.
If it is an emergency, never hesitate to call 911.
Primary Information Sources
Please self-report if you have any symptoms or have overcome your symptoms.
Many countries, like Italy, Spain, the US and others, only test people who are showing symptoms leading to a wrong age distribution of cases in the population. With data from South Korea, which tested comprehensively across the entire population- symptoms or not- we see an uneven distribution towards younger people. Even if you are not showing symptoms, you could be spreading the virus.
Grocery and prescription delivery 5 days per week
We are moving the Delivery Assistance Hotline to a Monday through Friday Schedule.
If you are at risk and self-isolating at home, ill with Covid-19 symptoms, or quarantined and need groceries or prescriptions delivered to your home; call (970) 641-7959. Deliveries are by drivers trained to safely handle your order and are available throughout the valley, 5 days a week, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
The screening site is now on the following schedule.
-Monday from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM in Gunnison
-Wednesday from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM in Crested Butte
-Friday testing will be by appointment and reserved for healthcare, law enforcement, EMS, and fire employees only.
We have seen a decrease in the number of screenings at the testing site. We are hoping to give the staff a bit of a break in anticipation of a larger scale testing of the community in the future.
Center for Mental Health
The Center for Mental Health has a free talk line that is open 24 hours per day at 970-252-6220.
Self-Report as Resolved
At 4:40 PM we had 338 previously symptomatic people reporting that their symptoms had resolved.
RECOVERY defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications for 72 hours and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and, at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. If your symptoms have resolved, please fill out the following form.
By the Numbers
As of 4:40 PM, we have 103 positive, 233 negative, and 7 pending tests.
The By the Numbers document as you have known it is being phased out. Our new Google Datastudio is live on the website. The main page is a breakdown. There is more detail in a link in the bottom right corner for those that want to dig in further.
We can update and adapt this data platform. Please let us know if there are pieces of information that we are not portraying that you would like to see.
