Variance to State
We were prepared to apply for the state’s “Protect Our Neighbors” stage. When applications finally opened on Tuesday, the application had a number of pieces that we weren’t expecting. We are working through the application, but due to the added components, we needed more time to pull together the paperwork.

New Dashboard and Virtual Town Hall
We are launching our new dashboard on Monday. We will introduce this new layout via our public meeting at 2:30 PM, 7/13. You can sign up ahead of time for the zoom meeting here. As always, it will also be live streamed to the Gunnison County Health and Human Services Facebook page. The new dashboard will reflect how our standing is within the blue level and what would cause us to move to more restrictive levels of the coronameter.
