The federal public health emergency declarations for COVID-19 are officially over. Over the last three years Mesa County Public Health scaled operations quickly and strategically adjusted based on the needs of the community.
COVID-19 will continue to be part of our lives. But we’ve learned a lot about how to prevent and control the spread.
We’ll continue to support Mesa County through disease surveillance, outbreak control, and vaccines.
