(August 25, 2020) – San Miguel County, CO --- Public Health has confirmed zero new positive cases from test results received August 22 – 25, keeping the total case count at 89 with zero active cases.
With Labor Day approaching, and schools returning to some level of in-person learning countywide, Public Health urges the community to continue moving forward with COVID-conscious behaviors.
“The incredible efforts made by each individual in our community have been effective in slowing the spread of the virus,” said Public Health Director Grace Franklin. “It is, however, still present in San Miguel County. This reduction in cases gives us reason to celebrate, but should not give us a false sense of security, as complacency will impede progress. I’m confident we can stay on this healthy trajectory if best practices continue.”
San Miguel County will continue posting caseload updates twice a week. The next update will be published on Friday, August 28.
Five Commitments of Containment:
- Wear a mask
- Maintain six-feet of physical distance
- Minimize group size
- Wash hands frequently
- Stay home when sick and get tested
