As Weld County continues to see widespread increase in COVID-19 positive cases, the Health Department is once again stressing the importance of preventative measures to slow and reduce the spread of the virus. The department, which strives to maintain patient privacy, especially for our smaller communities, has decided to share a map showing where positive cases are generally located throughout the county.
“Originally, we were hoping people would take the preventative measures seriously and understand that across the state COVID-19 is here, and we all need to do our part to fight the virus,” said Dr. Mark Wallace, MD MPH, Executive Director for the Health Department. “Perhaps if people can visually see where Weld County’s cases are the reality of our situation will become more apparent. However, we want to stress that if a community is not represented on the map, it doesn’t mean there are no cases of COVID-19 there. It means, we aren’t aware of any positive test results, but people can carry the virus and not be symptomatic. We should assume the virus is everywhere in Weld County and, frankly, Colorado.”
Currently, there are 104 positive cases and 4 deaths in Weld County.
“This really comes down to personal responsibility and everyone stepping up in their role to do what they can to prevent the spread of this virus,” said Wallace. “If, as a community, people limit their travel and their exposure to others, we will see our case numbers start to decline.” Wallace continues to stress physical distancing—also called social distancing—as the best way to slow the spread of this highly contagious virus. “Physical distancing does not mean you can’t be social—we suggest people stay connected via mobile phones, social media, and video chat platforms,” said Wallace.
