San Miguel County Public Health has updated the coronavirus website to include a section about vaccines. Updates include links to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) resources, pre-registration information, phasing and more.

Phase 1b of vaccine distribution has commenced throughout San Miguel County. Telluride Regional Medical Center and San Miguel County Public Health distributed their allocations this week almost entirely to residents 70 years of age and older.

Full-time residents of San Miguel County who are 70 or older and do not have a Primary Care Physician within the county should visit the county’s COVID page to pre-register for a vaccine. To pre-register, visit the county’s pre-registration form at:

Alternatively, if internet access is unavailable, you can pre-register by calling Dawn Ibis, Registry Coordinator for Vaccine Distribution, at (970) 708-8670. This registry line is reserved for full-time residents ages 70 and older at this time.

Public Health and the Telluride Regional Medical Center each received another 100 doses, enabling the county to continue with the administration of 200 Phase 1b vaccinations by the end of the day on Saturday, January 9.

Lodging Appendix A has been modified to adjust to Level Orange – High Risk. Under Level Orange, the lodging period has been modified from 15 day increments to one month’s time during which each unit cannot exceed 60% of occupiable nights. For example, during the month of January, a lodging unit cannot rent more than 19 nights throughout the entirety of the month. Additionally, capacity limitations have been modified to allow no more than 10 guests from no more than two households at any given time. This change is aligned with the state’s regulation of personal gatherings in Levels Blue through Orange.

Public Health has confirmed 41 new positive cases of COVID-19 from test results received from January 6 through 8. Of these cases, 33 are residents and all actively contagious cases are currently in isolation. There have been 467 total COVID cases among residents to date with 40 active cases.
