Fremont County to move to Safer at Home Level Yellow: Due to a decline in cases.
FREMONT COUNTY- In response to the decline in COVID-19 case rates, test positivity, and hospitalizations, the Fremont County Department of Public Health and Environment, along with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), is moving Fremont County to Safer at Home Level Yellow: Concern. The
move to Safer at Home Level Yellow: Concern will go into effect Friday, February 5, 2021.
As of February 4, 2021, Fremont County’s COVID-19 two-week cumulative incidence rate is 369.4, the positivity rate is 2.4%, and stable hospitalization rate for 12 days. Safer at Home Level Yellow: Concern restrictions will go into effect Friday, February 5th, 2021.
“I want to thank the Health Department for their hard work and Kayla Marler for her persistence with CDPHE trying to get Fremont County back to yellow,” said Fremont County Commissioner Dwayne McFall. “While still not 100% open, this change will allow businesses to serve more people. If we stay on this course, we will hopefully get to near normal soon. Thank you, Fremont County, for your support of all local businesses.”
The Fremont County officials are aware and attuned to the burden these restrictions place on our businesses and community. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s continued efforts and cooperation to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
