"Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) continues to closely monitor case counts as well as illness in our community related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mesa County has had 60 positive cases of COVID-19 confirmed through PCR, or nasal swab, testing. Of the positive cases, 53 are considered recovered, which MCPH defines as being more than 14 days from illness onset, or the day when symptoms started.

With increases in testing and relaxed social distancing measures, MCPH expects to see additional cases of COVID-19."

As Reported by Mesa County Public Health

Mesa County remains well prepared to handle an increase in cases. With a robust infrastructure in place to quickly identify and investigate illness in our community, but the recent increase serves as a reminder to stay the course.

Your actions keep our community safe:

  • Maintain 6 feet of physical distance between you and others.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Wear a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth in public.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Get tested if symptoms appear.

Visit Mesa County Public Health for more information.
