Public Health is the lead organization for community-based disease investigation and control. Through partnership with other health and medical organizations, support from elected and municipal officials and institutions, health officials can limit the spread of a disease, and reduce its impact on a community. What can you do? Stay home if you are ill, get tested, and most importantly get vaccinated! Visit our Immunizations page for more information.
Contact tracing following testing keeps schools open and businesses open by identifying cases earlier and decreasing the chances that someone will unknowingly spread the virus reduces transmission in our community. Click here to learn more about the part testing plays in an overall COVID-19 prevention strategy. For more information on how and where to get tested, click here.
Keeping Schools Open:
The basic belief that having children IN the classroom is far better for our community is what drives this partnership between the Delta County School District and the Delta County Health Department. Parents help by keeping their children home when they are sick (isolation), or when they’ve been in contact with a known COVID-19 case (quarantine). For more on how you can Keep our Schools Open, click here.
Partnering with Business (Partnership for a COVID-Free Delta County):
In the weeks to come businesses in each of the jurisdictions will be receiving recognition (as a part of the Partnership for a COVID-Free Delta County) for how they support keeping COVID-19 numbers down in Delta County, protect our most vulnerable populations, and contribute to a thriving economy even in the most stringent of COVID-19 restrictions. As more information is developed, it will be added to our Partnering with Business page. Click here for the most recent letter for restaurants and liquor establishments from CDPHE.
Providing up-to-date and accurate health information to the community through all the ways people like to receive it is a basic public health priority: print media (like the Delta County Independent), social media (like Facebook), and our website (www.deltacountyhealth.org). Data drives what we do: visit bit.ly/DeltaCOVID19Dashboard.
A surge is what we call a demand for health care resources in excess of supply. Some of our shortcomings as a rural health care system are lack of staff, facilities, and supplies, and adequate leverage in the face of larger and better-financed systems. Working together to bulk-purchase, relying on our partnerships for testing, vaccination, data-tracking and staffing to meet the needs of Delta County residents, including activation of emergency support through our county and state emergency management organizations help us to meet the surge head-on.
