10th Amended Public Health Order
The 10th Amended Public Health Order was signed on, 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.
We will be running a public zoom meeting on Monday, 6/15 at 2:30 to talk about a contact tracing app and further discuss mask use. Sign up ahead of time for the zoom webinar here. We will also be live streaming to the meeting onto Gunnison County Health and Human Services Facebook page.

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.
