Coloradans need to stay informed, take simple disease prevention measures, and prepare. 

  • Practice good hygiene. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water. In the absence of soap and water, use hand-sanitizer; use a tissue or your elbow or sleeve to cover coughs and sneezes. 
  • Stay home if you’re sick; keep your children home if they are sick. Talk to your employer about working from home if possible.
  • We advise Coloradans to always be prepared for an emergency and have a plan for your family. 
  • Stay informed with reliable, up-to-date information. People who have general questions about coronavirus disease 2019, can call CO HELP at 303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911 or email, for answers in English and Spanish (Español), Mandarin (普通话), and more. Coloradans can also visit the CDC  and CDPHE  websites for more information on best practices.
