Larimer County Department of Health & Environment Responds to COVID-19 Pandemic
 

March 15, 2020: Larimer County Declares Formal Emergency to Access Local, State and Federal Resources for COVID-19 Response

Colorado is responding to the spread of COVID-19 across the state. Our priority is keeping the people of our state safe. We are monitoring the situation in real-time and are prepared to act when we do have a known case in our community.

We are working together with state public health officials, following federal guidance, to assess and test suspected cases, identify people who may have been exposed to cases, and determine the need for monitoring, isolation, quarantine, or other restriction of movement and activities.

Multiple responses to emerging pathogens in the last few years have prepared public health to respond to situations like this. We have worked on SARS, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic, and MERS. Officials are working closely with CDC and organizations across the state to ensure our response is proactive, strong, and collaborative.

We have pandemic response plans ready to go, we have built tools and protocols to monitor travelers and other individuals who may be exposed, we have the infection control expertise we need, and perhaps most important, we’ve built strong relationships with community and healthcare partners.
