Smoke in the Eagle River Valley

Smoke in the Eagle River Valley is coming in from fires to the west. 

Heavy smoke from the Grizzly Creek Fire is expected in Eagle County overnight as temperatures cool. Keep windows closed when possible.

If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. 

Consider limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present. Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.

Information on the Grizzly Creek Fire in Glenwood Canyon can be found at www.facebook.com/GrizzlyCreekFireCO or at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6942/.

County responds to state notification on public health variance | El condado responde a la notificación estatal sobre la divergencia de salud pública

Trends in the local spread of COVID-19 could affect Eagle County’s ability to maintain its public health order variance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). If disease spread does not decrease to acceptable levels, the county may be required to reset to the state’s more restrictive public health order.

Last week, the state health department notified the county that local disease rates were outside the levels allowed by the variance. CDPHE required the county to create a mitigation plan that reflects the actions it will take over the next two weeks to significantly change the trends.

In response, Eagle County updated its public health order last Friday (7/17), which included limiting private gatherings to 10 people or less with six feet of distance required between non-household members; and limiting public gatherings to 100 people or less indoors and 175 outdoors with six feet of distance required between non-household members and no ability to expand events with multiple groups.

In addition, the county has submitted a plan to the state outlining immediate actions to help decrease case incidence rates to below 100 cases per 100,000 population within the next 2 to 4 weeks, and longer-term actions that will help maintain the economy, keep the workforce employed, open schools, and lead to a winter with ski resorts opened.

These actions range from increased education and communication, to assistance for those that may require isolation and quarantine, to greater collaboration regionally and statewide to improve testing capacity.

Officials continue to stress the importance of individual actions, as well. “We need the community to take this seriously,” said Eagle County Communications Director Kris Widlak. “We all must limit our social contacts and practice safe distancing. If you get sick, will you remember every person with whom you’ve had close contact over the past 10 to 14 days? Will you be able to warn and protect your family, your friends, your coworkers? If we all can’t answer these questions, then we are doing it wrong.” 

Conversations between Eagle County and CDPHE will be ongoing over the next few weeks as officials monitor disease trends.

Regular updates on the county’s response to COVID-19 are being shared at www.ECEmergency.org. The county’s forum for community discussions is at www.facebook.com/OneValleyVoice. Those with additional questions can email covidquestions@eaglecounty.us or call 970-328-9750.

----------------------------------------------------

Las tendencias en la propagación local del COVID-19 podrían afectar la capacidad del Condado de Eagle de mantener la divergencia en su orden de salud pública de la del Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente de Colorado (CDPHE, por sus siglas en inglés). Si la propagación de la enfermedad no disminuye a niveles aceptables, es posible que el condado deba restablecer la orden de salud pública más restrictiva del estado.

La semana pasada, el departamento de salud del estado notificó al condado que las tasas de enfermedades locales estaban fuera de los niveles permitidos por la variación. CDPHE requirió que el condado creara un plan de mitigación que refleje las acciones que tomará en las próximas dos semanas para cambiar significativamente las tendencias.

En respuesta a ello, el Condado de Eagle actualizó su orden de salud pública el viernes pasado (7/17), la cual incluyó limitar las reuniones privadas a 10 personas o menos con seis pies de distancia requerida entre las personas que no son miembros del mismo hogar; así como limitar las reuniones públicas a 100 personas o menos en interiores y 175 en exteriores con seis pies de distancia requerida entre personas que no son miembros del mismo hogar y sin capacidad de expandir eventos con múltiples grupos.

Además, el condado ha presentado un plan al estado que describe acciones inmediatas para ayudar a disminuir las tasas de incidencia de casos a menos de 100 casos por cada 100,000 habitantes en las próximas 2 a 4 semanas, y acciones adicionales a largo plazo que ayudarán a mantener la economía, a la fuerza laboral empleada, a abrir escuelas y que nos llevarán a un invierno donde los centros de esquí puedan estar abiertos.

Estas acciones van desde una mayor educación y comunicación, hasta asistencia para aquellos que pueden requerir aislamiento y cuarentena, y una mayor colaboración a nivel regional y estatal para mejorar la capacidad de evaluación.

Asimismo, los funcionarios continúan enfatizando la importancia de las acciones individuales. “Necesitamos que la comunidad se tome esto en serio”,dijo la Directora de Comunicaciones del Condado de Eagle, Kris Widlak. “Todos debemos limitar nuestros contactos sociales y practicar el distanciamiento seguro. Si se enferma, ¿podrá recordar a todas las personas con las que ha tenido contacto cercano durante los últimos 10 a 14 días? ¿Será capaz de advertir y proteger a su familia, sus amigos o sus compañeros de trabajo? Si todos no podemos responder estas preguntas, entonces estamos haciendo las cosas mal”. 

Las conversaciones entre el Condado de Eagle y CDPHE continuarán durante las próximas semanas mientras los funcionarios monitorean las tendencias de la enfermedad.

Las actualizaciones periódicas sobre la respuesta del condado al COVID-19 se comparten en www.ECEmergency.org. El foro del condado para debates comunitarios está en www.facebook.com/OneValleyVoice. Aquellos con preguntas adicionales pueden enviar un correo electrónico a covidquestions@eaglecounty.us o llamar al 970-328-9750.

Eagle County makes updates to its community monitoring dashboard | El Condado de Eagle actualiza su tablero de monitoreo comunitario

Eagle County has updated its Community COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard to provide more real-time information and help more accurately represent disease trends.

The biggest change is in the “Confirmed Cases by Test Date” chart, which now shows daily confirmed cases, instead of posting this data every 5 days. This will provide the community with more real-time information on confirmed case incidence. Neighboring counties are using a similar graph with a 7- or 14-day rolling average, and officials say moving from 5  to 7 days will show a trendline that helps smooth out some of peaks and valleys created by the day-to-day inconsistencies in testing and lab turnaround times.

Another notable change includes the ability to choose a date range, making the Confirmed Cases by Test Date along with the Onset Date graphs the most effective charts for determining disease trends and level of transmission in the community.

The dashboard will continue to change as new indicators and data become available. Additional information on the county’s response to COVID-19 is available at www.ECEmergency.org and by following One Valley Voice on Facebook at www.facebook.com/OneValleyVoice.

Residents may also email CovidQuestions@eaglecounty.us or call 970-328-9750 with questions.

---------------------------------------------------------------

El Condado de Eagle ha actualizado su Panel de Monitoreo de COVID-19 de la Comunidad para proporcionar más información en tiempo real y ayudar a representar con mayor precisión las tendencias de la enfermedad.

El mayor cambio se encuentra en el cuadro "Casos confirmados por fecha de prueba", que ahora muestra casos confirmados diariamente, en lugar de publicar estos datos cada 5 días. Esto proporcionará a la comunidad más información en tiempo real sobre la incidencia de casos confirmados. Los condados vecinos están utilizando un gráfico similar con un promedio móvil de 7 o 14 días, y las autoridades dicen que pasar de 5 a 7 días mostrará una línea de tendencia que ayuda a suavizar algunos de los picos y valles creados por las inconsistencias cotidianas en las pruebas y el tiempo para obtener los resultados del laboratorio.

Otro cambio notable incluye la habilidad de elegir un rango de fechas, lo que resulta en que los Casos Confirmados por Fecha de Prueba junto con los gráficos de Fecha de Inicio, sean los cuadros más efectivos para determinar las tendencias de la enfermedad y el nivel de transmisión comunitaria.

El tablero continuará cambiando a medida que haya nuevos indicadores y datos disponibles. Información adicional sobre la respuesta del condado al COVID-19 está disponible en www.ECEmergency.org y siguiendo a One Valley Voice en Facebook en www.facebook.com/OneValleyVoice.
