Rio Blanco County COVID-19 update for March 23

Listen to this post

RBC | Multiple agencies in the county are working together in preparation for any COVID-19 patients.

According to a press release from the county Monday, there are no laboratory-confirmed cases in RBC as of today, but with increased testing and cases in surrounding counties it’s expected RBC will have a case or cases in the days to come. Statewide there are 591 cases.

If you have visited areas that are known to have sustained community spread within the past 14 days (certain foreign countries, other states with common spread, or Summit, Eagle, Pitkin, and Gunnison counties in Colorado), and were in public locations such as retail shops, restaurants, bars, or ski lodges, we recommend that you watch for symptoms. Self‐quarantine is recommended; however, the CDC states that transmission of the disease in the absence of symptoms is less likely.

Rangely Community Medical Health and Wellness Center and RBC Public Health implemented a specimen collection clinic Monday, March 23 that will be held Monday-Friday from 12-2 p.m. Pre-screening by phone is required. Call 970-620-3969.

Positive patients will be transported via ground or fixed-wing aircraft if needed.
