Additional Boulder County Residents Test Positive for COVID-19: Residents Urged to Practice Social Distancing

Four additional Boulder County residents have tested positive for COVID-19. While the disease investigations are still being conducted, it is clear that there has been exposure from national and international travel, and from ski areas in Colorado where there is known to be local transmission occurring.

With this new information, and the notice from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment asking people who visited Eagle, Summit, Pitkin, or Gunnison counties in the past week to minimize contact with others, Boulder County Public Health strongly recommends all residents stay home as much as possible.

“We are entering the most critical phase,” said Jeff Zayach, Boulder County Public Health director. “It is vital that everyone be diligent about social distancing.”
