Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

Thank you for your continued diligence in helping keep the spread of COVID-19 low in our community. As the Larimer County information below indicates, there have been some slight increases in total cases, which is to be expected as people are out more. However, in order to move into the next phase of the state’s reopening plans, we must continue to demonstrate low transmission in our area.

I’ve said it many times, but it still bears repeating: the very best way for us to support our local businesses and allow services and activities to remain open is for each of us to continue wearing our face coverings, washing our hands, and staying home as much as possible. We cannot become complacent now.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager

The Latest from Larimer County
According to Larimer County Department of Public Health and Environment, COVID-19 cases in the community are increasing; on July 2nd, there were 16 reported cases, up from the recent daily average of five. 

They also shared that "ages of reported cases have continued to drop, and the median age of cases is now between 20 and 30 years old. While this age demographic doesn’t tend to get very sick from COVID-19, these cases continue to create community spread in our community."

Larimer County Public Health's Risk Dashboard
helps community members understand risk and COVID-19 data relevant to our county. The dashboard highlights the early warning indicators used by the Health Department to monitor the health of our hospital systems and COVID-19 case data. Some indicators are updated daily, while hospital data will be updated three times a week.

Wearing a face covering is something we all can – and should – continue to do to protect each other. Wearing a face covering, even when you feel healthy, reduces the risk of transmitting the virus to others. Face coverings, physical distancing, handwashing, and frequent cleaning all help slow the spread of the virus and must continue in order to allow Larimer County to move forward with reopening.
