The Colorado Department of Health and Environment just issued an alert advising all visitors in the past week and residents of Eagle, Summit, Pitkin, and Gunnison counties in Colorado to self-isolate and avoid as much contact with others as possible. Due to extensive spread of COVID-19 in a number of mountain resort communities, visitors and residents of these counties are being ask to work from home and avoid social contact.

If you live in Colorado and are leaving one of these communities, you should minimize contact with other people for 14 days and watch for the development of symptoms like cough, fever, and shortness of breath. If you have symptoms, stay where you are, isolate yourself from others, and call a health care provider or nurse line before seeking care. Do not fly. Do not use public transportation or ride-shares.

If you have been in any of these counties, please do not report to work and contact your supervisor as soon as possible to make arrangements.
