The current rise in Covid-19 infections among Delta County residents is very concerning.
This rise indicates an increasing level of community transmission. Unlike person-to-person transmission, community transmission does not have a clear source of origin. As you may have noticed, Delta's neighboring counties are experiencing high levels of Covid-19 infections as well (Mesa, Montrose).
It is now more important than ever to continue to take the steps to lessen your risk of becoming infected:
Wear a mask, Wash your hands, and Watch your distance (3 W's).
Keeping our schools and businesses open and outbreak free is only possible with your cooperation!
Get tested (to identify cases early and prevent random transmission) stay home if you are feeling ill (even minor symptoms), and avoid gathering in larger groups (meet virtually when possible.)
