Community Encouraged to Stay Safe Over Labor Day Weekend

Public Health announces zero Covid-19 cases in three days. For up-to-date coronavirus information visit here. San Miguel County will continue posting caseload updates twice a week. The next update will be published on Tuesday, September 8.

Public Health has confirmed zero new positive cases from test results received September 2 – September 4, keeping the total case count at 89 with zero active cases.

As Labor Day weekend kicks-off, Public Health reminds the community to stay mindful of best practices while enjoying the holiday with friends and family. Barbecues and gatherings are still possible, with social groups limited to 10 people and outdoor venues encouraged. Campers should set up separate tent areas if they are in a group, bring all supplies needed, and avoid sharing cookware and other personal dining items. For all holiday activities, physical distancing should be maintained and face coverings used when six-feet of distancing is not possible.

“Our community has done an excellent job in doing their part to slow the spread of COVID, but we need to be very aware of our behaviors over the holiday weekend,” said Public Health Director Grace Franklin. “We saw a surge in cases after the July 4thweekend, and do not want to repeat that cycle for Labor Day. Keep gatherings small, physical distance, wear a mask and stay home if you’re not feeling well.”

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
