First presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in La Plata County

March 23, 2020

Today the local public health department announced the first presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in La Plata County. Local public health officials continue to issue strong guidance for social distancing and staying home as they operate under the assumption COVID-19 will continue to spread in our community. The positive case is not affiliated with FLC, but we have to exercise greater caution. Leadership will continue to track this situation and please continue to be extra vigilant with previous guidance:

  • Practice social distancing: Maintain at least six feet distance between yourself and others.
  • Stay home unless you are seeking critical medical care or making essential trips for basic necessities.
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water. In the absence of soap and water, use hand-sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or bent elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Stay safe and healthy, Skyhawks.
