Larimer County is reporting a broad range of ages testing positive for COVID-19. The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment (LCDHE) knows that while more susceptible populations have more complications from COVID-19, other age ranges are also getting sick and some are hospitalized.

Testing capacity in Colorado is limited, but the current results for Larimer County confirm that COVID-19 is affecting more than just our population over 60 years old.

69% of cases in Larimer County are younger than 60 - https://youtu.be/JxkjPAVnDQI

LCDHE is reminding the community that everyone needs to actively protect others by staying home. When people go out for essential services, physical (social) distancing is key. Remind children that although they might not get terribly sick from COVID-19, they can spread the virus to family members and close contacts that can’t fight the virus as well. It takes the whole community doing their part to slow the transfer of the virus in Larimer County. “I am pleading with our residents to follow strict physical distancing and stay home if it's not essential. Social distancing is 6 feet from others at all times. The sooner we take these dramatic measures, the sooner we will be able to resume normal activity,” said Tom Gonzales, Larimer County Public Health Director.  

You can help slow the spread of viruses by:

●          increasing distance between people to six feet to help reduce spread,

●          washing hands frequently with soap and water,

●          covering coughs and sneezes,

●          staying home.

Information about COVID-19 is constantly changing, and the public health response adjusts as more is learned about this virus. While there is plenty of news and media information available, LCDHE is encouraging Larimer County residents to view the latest credible information on COVID-19 at www.larimer.org/coronavirus  or www.CDC.gov/coronavirus. Additionally, residents are encouraged to follow LCDHE’s Facebook and Twitter accounts at @LarimerHealth.
