COVID case numbers continue to rise in Arapahoe County and around Colorado

The onset of autumn’s cooler weather is forcing more people indoors. This and other factors are causing a troubling increase in COVID case numbers in the County and throughout the state, which is made even more concerning by the onset of flu season.

To keep as many people as safe and healthy as possible and avoid overwhelming our hospitals, Arapahoe County and public health officials urge everyone to continue doing everything we know will help combat the virus. This includes wearing masks when around others, even outdoors; maintaining strict social distancing, even when you’re among friends or family; practicing frequent hand washing; avoiding gatherings large and small whenever you can; and getting a flu shot.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) moved Arapahoe County from Safer at Home Level 1 to Level 2 a few weeks ago, and more restrictive measures may be necessary if we cannot reverse these recent trends.

“We know there is a certain amount of ‘COVID fatigue’ among all of us, but the virus is currently experiencing a resurgence here and elsewhere,” said Arapahoe County Board Chair Nancy Sharpe. “We urge everyone to ‘Keep It Up’ when it comes to mask wearing and doing the other anti-viral practices that are proven to work.”
