(September 11, 2020) Public Health has confirmed zero new positive cases from test results received September 9 –11, keeping the total case count at 89 with zero active cases.

With testing remaining robust, this has led to one full month without any new COVID cases within the county.

To maintain these stabilized trends, Public Health stresses the importance of staying healthy, especially given the recent winter weather, some County schools phasing back to in-person learning, and fall sports underway. If a child exhibits any symptoms such as a sore throat, cough, fatigue, or fever, they should stay home and make an appointment with a medical provider. Their physician will determine if there is an alternate diagnosis or if testing is recommended,…

(September 1, 2020) – San Miguel County, CO --- Public Health has confirmed zero new positive cases from test results received August 29 – September 1, keeping the total case count at 89 with zero active cases.

The COVID dashboard has recently been enhanced with additional metrics including positivity and incidence rates. Incidence and positivity rates are critical measures because they give an indication of how widespread infection is in the County. Both are calculated on a two-week basis from Thursday-Thursday, and will be published every Tuesday. Metrics are calculated within this time-frame due to processing time for test results.

Based on data from August 13-27, San Miguel County’s current positivity rate is at 0.7% and incidence rate is at 24.5.…

Monday was the first day of school, but this year the walls of the classrooms for the first day back were groves of trees, the ceiling a warm blue sky. Given the difficulties of sending students back to school amidst a catastrophic pandemic, only students up to fifth grade are attending school in person, while the upper grades began the school year remotely. However, thanks to the efforts of the teachers of the outdoor education team — Erin Murray, Sue Herir and Megan Wise, with the support of principal Sheree Lynn — the students of Telluride Intermediate School got to head outside for a back-to-school day in nature.

While spending more time outside with students is partly a strategy to lower the risk of spreading the coronavirus, fourth grade teacher…

During such a year of uncertainty, Telski owner Chuck Horning is sure of one thing.

“We’ll get through this. The community will get through it,” he said in an interview about the upcoming 2020-21 ski season with the Daily Planet Monday.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new normal, as social distancing and face coverings have become commonplace, if not expected, and businesses have adapted, including the ski resort.

Horning explained that the company will follow any guidelines that may come down from the state, which closed all Colorado ski resorts in mid-March, but he’s concentrating on what can be controlled right now, with opening day tentatively set for the week of Thanksgiving, though a specific…

(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…

The solid stone building at the top of North Fir Street has seen it all, from floods to fires, mining catastrophes and strikes, births and deaths — it was once a hospital, after all — scads of giddy skiers and all the small triumphs and heartbreaks of life in a remote mountain town. And, when it comes to rampant virus outbreaks, the current COVID-19 pandemic is not the building’s first. But, when it comes to accepting visitors again after a lengthy shutdown, there is no how-to manual, according to Kiernan Lannon, executive director of the Telluride Historical Museum (THM). The beloved institution is reopening July 1, by appointment…
