Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

At last night’s City Council Work Session, Larimer County Health Director, Tom Gonzales; President and CEO of Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies, Kevin Unger; and President of Banner Health's Western Region, Margot Karsten shared an update on the region’s COVID-19 preparedness and response. I found the conversation enlightening and helpful in understanding our current situation and some of the challenges that remain as we look forward. If you missed it last night, please take some time to watch it online.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager
