    • Lake County is still at risk of being placed into the state’s “Orange – High Risk” category with higher level of restrictions. LCPHA is meeting again with CDPHE on Monday, Nov 2 to evaluate Lake County’s status and mitigation plans, which will inform the requirements and timeline of any local public health order changes. Update on their determination will be shared early next week.

Please see attached Press Release from Lake County Public Health Agency with updates on Lake County’s local COVID response.

“Lake County Public Health Agency (LCPHA) was able to gain an extension of time from Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) for Lake County’s possible movement into CDPHE’s “Orange - High Risk” category of the Safer-At-Home public health order dial framework. The state will now make the decision on Lake County’s status on Monday, November 2nd… If Lake County’s positivity rate has not decreased markedly by next week, it is likely CDPHE will require the county to move into the more restrictive “Safer At Home - Level 3 - High Risk” level within the CDPHE dial framework. LCPHA will inform the community of this status as soon as CDPHE make its determination.”

Please review for important news on LCPHA’s local public health order amendment effective today and updated Risk Level Indicator Guidelines, now fully aligned with parameters established within current CDPHE state dial framework.
