Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) has been notified of a second positive case of COVID-19 from the state public health laboratory.
The Mesa County resident that tested positive is a male over the age of 60. This individual is a contact of the first person to test positive for COVID-19 in Mesa County.
Our community-wide response team is working to help stop the spread of illness, but as we’ve shared before we fully expect more cases. The MCPH screening location is collecting dozens of samples every day, those results are being reported to us as they are completed at the state lab in Denver.
We are taking the situation seriously, and ask residents to do the same by staying informed and following public health and provider recommendations. Statewide social distancing public health orders are in effect and they are vital to helping contain the spread of this virus in Mesa County and across Colorado.
