I am committed to staying in my home here in Breckenridge. Some folks are still unaware of what is happening up here so I am sharing a mountain town COVID-19 update. For all Coloradoans and friends from around the world, this link is the source to follow for official Colorado State information:
Things are rapidly changing here was the most recent update as of yesterday, March 15, 2020:
IMPORTANT COVID19 UPDATE –
ANYONE who has been in Eagle, Summit, Pitkin, or Gunnison counties in the past week should minimize all contact with other people, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms.
County public health and emergency management agencies will provide more detailed guidance for residents and visitors within their communities. The general guidance from CDPHE is as follows:
🔴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 are visiting Colorado from out of state and do not currently have symptoms (cough, fever, and shortness of breath), you can return home and practice social distancing there.
🔴If you have symptoms, stay where you are, isolate yourself from others, and call a health care provider or nurse line before seeking care.
We are here to stand in solidarity with our communities, friends, and neighbors. We will stay apart but do this together with all of you and update you on news from our authorities. We will continue and look forward to telling great mountain town stories too as we beat this virus down together.
Be kind everyone. This is a world pandemic that does not discriminate. Sending love, health and peace.
