Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) has been notified of additional positive cases of COVID-19. The total number of cases in Mesa County is now 11. 

It is essential all residents of Mesa County take action to slow the spread. We fully expect our case count will continue to increase, however, actions we take now shorten the amount of time we see a continued rise in case counts and could significantly impact severe outcomes, including death, in our community. 

“COVID-19 will have lasting impacts on our community, the state of Colorado, the entire country, and the world. We all have a responsibility to do our part,” Jeff Kuhr MCPH Executive Director, says. “We know that asking you to stay at home except for essentials is inconvenient; even a significant hardship for some, but distancing yourself from others is the best protection for you, your family, and the most vulnerable in our community. It can save lives.”
