10th Amended Public Health Order

The 10th Amended Public Health Order was signed today, 6/8/2020. We are entering with a blue level of opening. While we have applied for a variance from the state, we have not yet received a response. Until we do, we will be required to follow the state where it is stricter. For the full Public Health Order, indicators that will guide which level we are in, and infographics for each health order level, please visit covid19.gunnisoncounty.org/pho.

Public Meeting

We ran a public facing Zoom Webinar and simultaneously streamed it on Facebook Live to the Gunnison County Health and Human Services page. The topic was the 10th Amended Public Health Order in addition to addressing proper mask use and research that supports their use.

Delivery Assistance Update

Prescriptions deliveries will be scheduled any day of the week, but they will only be delivered on Tuesday and Fridays.

We ask that you only use this service 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. The Gunnison Senior Transportation Dispatch will now be fielding calls at (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 1:00 p.m.

Screening Site Changes

Starting on June 9th, the screening site will move to be located only at GVH Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The site will be located in the large north entrance parking lot and operate out of a shed. We ask that you please call the call center ahead to schedule an appointment at 970-641-7660.

Importance of Self-Reporting

One of the best tools to provide early warnings of spread in the community is to self-report as symptomatic. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, even if they are mild, please self-report and isolate yourself.

Call Center Hours 970-641-7660

The call center will be operating 8am-12pm Monday-Friday. For those needing assistance outside of those hours, there will be someone monitoring the callcenter@gunnisoncounty.org email.
