Updated 4:45PM 03-30-2020 - Ouray County Public Health Agency (OCPHA) is coordinating with our Regional Epidemiology & Emergency Preparedness and Response Team at Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) in Grand Junction to provide updated information to the public. Please visit our multi-agency webpage dedicated to coronavirus by clicking here. While Ouray County does not have a confirmed positive case, our local medical experts are operated under the suspicion that they are treating patients with COVID-19 and extreme medical testing limitations at the local, State, and Federal levels are the reason for the lack of information regarding diagnosis in our community. Please be sure to check the CDC website for information on testing.
CDPHE is strongly advising the public: if you have symptoms (fever, cough, and shortness of breath or even mild, early symptoms that you think may be COVID-19), don’t want for a test to self-isolate. Call your healthcare provider only if your illness becomes more severe, especially if you are experiencing shortness of breath. If you have a medical emergency, call 911 and tell the dispatcher your symptoms. People who are not at high risk of severe illness may not need to be evaluated in person or tested for COVID-19. Not everyone with symptoms will be tested right away.
