Resources for Symptoms and Prevention

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's CO HELP: COVID-19 hotline is an excellent resource for the latest information and for general questions. Call 303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911, or email them here for answers in English and Spanish (Español), Mandarin (普通话), and more.

For individuals displaying symptoms of illness, UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center provides virtual nurse consultation to residents of northwest Colorado as well as visitors to our area. These options are ideal as there is no appointment necessary, and you can be helped from the comfort of your home. Please use these alternatives if you may be contagious to help eliminate the spread of symptoms to others.

Routt County and Moffat County Public Health recommend focusing on preventative measures your business can take to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Please share these with employees and visitors:

  • Be vigilant in handwashing. Place signs around your organization encouraging people to take simple measures against the spread of illness. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand-sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Stay home when sick, practice cough and sneeze etiquette and encourage others to do the same.  
  • Regularly clean high-touch surfaces around your organization with a disinfectant cleaner. For a list of disinfectants for use against COVID-19 please visit the EPA website.
