County to implement new COVID-19 public health order | El condado implementará nueva orden de salud pública relacionada al COVID-19

Eagle County Public Health and Environment has updated the county’s Public Health Order regarding COVID-19. In alignment with the county’s Transition Trail Map and with modifications in accordance with a variance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), the move to the “Black Diamond” Phase will take place on July 3.

Current disease surveillance data has pushed Eagle County into a cautious state with recent increases in spread noted in the county and region. In addition, state and national transmission data continues to increase with several states slowing down their reopening plan in advance of the holiday weekend. “Our ability to keep the virus in check and slow the spread at a community level is based on our individual behaviors,” said Heath Harmon, Director of Eagle County Public Health and Environment. “The recent increases in Eagle County warrant everyone’s caution.  Whether you are a local or a visitor, we want you to reduce contact with others and remain vigilant with the Five Commitments of Containment.”

I will maintain 6 feet of distance
I will wash my hands often
I will cover my face in public
I will stay home when I am sick
I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms

The revised Eagle County Public Health Order reflects these current disease trends and holds gatherings sizes at lower levels than originally requested in the variance sent to the CDPHE, while also implementing a requirement for face coverings in public indoor settings.

Specifically, group sizes are limited to up to 100 people indoors and 175 people outdoors as long as 6 feet of distance between non-household members can be maintained.

In addition, the previous guidance that recommended face coverings in public indoor spaces is now a requirement. “We are taking this step now to protect the progress we’ve made, as well as our near- and long-term goals of a successful school year, ski season and beyond,”  said Commissioner Kathy Chandler-Henry. “We believe the potential inconvenience of wearing masks is a small price to pay to protect that future.”

All community members are strongly encouraged to read the entire order. Notable changes include:
  • Allows gatherings of up to 100 people indoors and 175 people outdoors. Six feet of distance will still be required between non-household members. Multiple groups may be allowed in separate spaces indoors, or with 20 feet of  distance between groups outdoors. 
  • Requires customers and guests to wear face coverings when entering any place of business or public indoor environment, and requires all individuals to wear face coverings in public outdoor spaces when less than 6 feet of physical distance from non-household members is expected to continue for 15 minutes or longer.
  • Removes capacity limits for short-term lodging. Six feet of distance will still be required for non-household members.
  • Continues requirements that all visitors be free of any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 for 10 days prior to arrival in Eagle County.
  • Continues isolation requirements for people who are sick and quarantine requirements for people who have been exposed to someone who is sick.
The county has updated its Business Toolkit and its Q&A resource to help with the transition. A communitywide education campaign geared toward visitors is also being deployed.

Also, in the coming weeks Eagle County Public Health and Environment will update its COVID-19 monitoring dashboard to include additional demographic data. The new information is intended to help provide insights into how the disease is affecting the community, and greater access to data used to make public health decisions.

Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente del Condado de Eagle ha actualizado la Orden de Salud Pública del condado relacionada al COVID-19. En alineamiento con el Mapa de Transición del condado y con las modificaciones establecidas por la divergencia del Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente de Colorado (CDPHE), el cambio a la Fase del "Diamante Negro" tendrá lugar el 3 de julio.

La data del monitoreo actual de la enfermedad ha empujado al Condado de Eagle hacia un estado de cautela dados los recientes incrementos en la propagación que se han visto en el condado y la región. Además, los datos de transmisión estatales y nacionales continúan aumentando, con varios estados desacelerando su plan de reapertura antes del fin de semana festivo. "Nuestra capacidad de mantener el virus bajo control y frenar la propagación a nivel comunitario depende de nuestros comportamientos individuales", dijo Heath Harmon, Director de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente del Condado de Eagle. “Los recientes aumentos en el Condado de Eagle justifican la precaución de todos. Ya sea usted residente o visitante, queremos que reduzca el contacto con los demás y que observe los Cinco Compromisos de Contención ".

Mantendré 6 pies de distancia
Me lavaré las manos con frecuencia
Cubriré mi cara en público,
Me quedaré en casa cuando estoy enfermo
Me haré la prueba de inmediato si tengo síntomas

La Orden de Salud Pública revisada del Condado de Eagle refleja las tendencias actuales de la enfermedad y mantiene el tamaño de las reuniones a niveles inferiores a los solicitados originalmente en la solicitud de divergencia enviada al CDPHE. Asimismo, requiere el uso de cubiertas faciales en espacios públicos interiores.

Específicamente, el tamaño de los grupos está limitado a un máximo de 100 personas en interiores y a 175 personas en exteriores, siempre que se pueda mantener una distancia de 6 pies entre personas que no son miembros de un mismo hogar.

Además, la orientación previa que recomendaba las cubiertas faciales en espacios públicos interiores es ahora un requisito. "Estamos dando este paso ahora para proteger el progreso que hemos logrado, así como nuestros objetivos a corto y largo plazo de un año escolar y temporada de esquí exitosos, entre otros", dijo la comisionada Kathy Chandler-Henry. "Creemos que el potencial inconveniente de usar máscaras es un pequeño precio a pagar para proteger ese futuro".

Se recomienda a todos los miembros de la comunidad que lean la orden en su totalidad. Los cambios notables incluyen:
  • Permite reuniones de hasta 100 personas en interiores y 175 personas en exteriores. Se necesitarán seis pies de distancia entre las personas que no pertenecen al mismo hogar. Se pueden permitir múltiples grupos en espacios separados en el interior, o con 20 pies de distancia entre grupos al aire libre.   
  • Requiere que los clientes e invitados usen cubiertas faciales al ingresar a cualquier lugar de negocios o ambiente interior público, y requiere que todas las personas usen cubiertas faciales en espacios públicos al aire libre cuando se espera mantener menos de 6 pies de distancia física entre personas que no conforman el mismo hogar durante 15 minutos o más.
  • Elimina los límites de capacidad para alojamiento a corto plazo. Se necesitarán seis pies de distancia entre personas que no conforman el mismo hogar.
  • Mantiene el requisito de que todos los visitantes estén libres de cualquier síntoma compatible con COVID-19 durante 10 días previos a su llegada al Condado de Eagle. 
  • Mantiene los requisitos de aislamiento para las personas que están enfermas y de cuarentena para las personas que han estado expuestas a alguien que está enfermo.
El condado ha actualizado su Kit de Herramientas para Negocios y el recurso de preguntas y respuestas para ayudar con la transición. También se está lanzando una campaña educativa comunitaria dirigida a los visitantes.

Asimismo, en las próximas semanas, Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente del Condado de Eagle incluirá datos demográficos adicionales en el panel de control del COVID-19. Los nuevos datos proporcionarán mayor información sobre cómo la enfermedad está afectando a nuestra comunidad y un mayor acceso a los datos utilizados al tomar decisiones de salud pública.

County amends Blue Square public health order | El Condado Modifica la Orden de Salud Pública del Cuadrado Azul

Eagle County has not yet received a decision on its request for a variance that would allow a transition to its Black Diamond Public Health Order in response to COVID-19. While the county awaits this variance, public health officials have identified areas where the county may loosen certain restrictions in its current order. The amendment to the Blue Square Order is effective immediately.

On June 18, 2020, the State of Colorado issued its “Safer At Home and In the Vast, Great Outdoors” public health order, which increased the allowable size of gatherings for indoor and outdoor events. Eagle County’s original Blue Square Phase Order included more restrictive limits on gathering sizes. The amendment allows an increase to the amount of persons that may gather at certain events to those limits set by the state.

In addition, the state’s June 18 order does not impose occupancy restrictions on short term lodging. Eagle County’s Blue Square Order imposed a 50% occupancy restriction, and the amendment removes that restriction.

County officials are still hopeful that a decision on the variance request will be made soon. The state could approve, approve with conditions, or deny the request.

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.

Eagle County aún no ha recibido una decisión sobre su solicitud de divergencia, la cual permitiría la transición a la Orden de Salud Pública del Diamante Negro en respuesta al COVID-19. Mientras el condado espera la respuesta a esta divergencia, los funcionarios de salud pública han identificado áreas donde el condado puede relajar ciertas restricciones en su orden actual. La enmienda a la Orden del Cuadrado Azul entra en vigencia de inmediato.

El 18 de junio del 2020, el Estado de Colorado emitió su orden de salud pública "Más Seguros en Casa y en la Naturaleza", que aumentó el tamaño permitido de las reuniones para eventos interiores y exteriores. La Orden original de la Fase del Cuadrado Azul del Condado de Eagle incluyó límites más restrictivos para el tamaño de las reuniones. La enmienda permite un aumento en la cantidad de personas que pueden reunirse en ciertos eventos a los límites establecidos por el estado.

Además, la orden estatal del 18 de junio no impone restricciones de ocupación en los alojamientos a corto plazo. La Orden del Cuadrado Azul del Condado de Eagle impuso una restricción de ocupación del 50%, y la enmienda elimina esa restricción.

Los funcionarios del condado aún esperan que pronto se tome una decisión sobre la solicitud de divergencia. El estado podría aprobarla, aprobarla con condiciones o negar la solicitud.

Residents and guests reminded of the importance of personal actions in managing COVID-19 | Recordatorio para los residentes y visitantes sobre la importancia de las acciones personales para el control del COVID-19

Eagle County Public Health and Environment (ECPHE) is reminding residents and visitors of the importance of personal responsibility in managing the spread of COVID-19. The precautions taken by individuals continue to be critical for protecting themselves, their families, and the community.

During the past two weeks, approximately 50% of COVID-19 cases in Eagle County were among people 30 years of age or younger. This is a shift from March and April, where the highest proportion of cases was among people aged 40 to 55.

Within this same period of time, 54% of cases were in people who were exposed to a confirmed case and were identified during the interview process. “The good news here is that each person was already in quarantine and limiting exposures to other people when their illness began,” said ECPHE Director Heath Harmon.

Harmon says people with symptoms have been getting tested early, which is a good trend. “We do, however, still see some people going to work or social events when they are sick,” he said. “Staying home when you're sick will not only limit exposures to your friends and loved ones, it is vital for the health of our businesses as well.”

Pending approval of a state variance, Eagle County is preparing for its transition to the Black Diamond Phase of its public health orders on June 22 and officials point to the benefits of additional visitors returning to the area in aiding the county’s economic recovery. Public Health is asking all residents to help set a strong example for guests by continuing to model the 5 Commitments of Containment:

I will maintain 6 feet of physical distance.
I will wash my hands often.
I will cover my face in public.
I will stay home when I am sick.
I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms.

Eagle County’s public health order prohibits anyone with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within the last 14 days from visiting the county. In addition, visitors who develop illness during their stay are required to remain within their lodging unit and not go out in public unless accessing medical care. Those who are confirmed with COVID-19 may need to extend their stay until they have completed 10 days of isolation. Similarly, those who have been exposed to someone confirmed with COVID-19 may be required to extend their stay to complete a required quarantine of 14 days. In both instances, an extended stay will be required at the visitor’s expense.

“Although our community and local businesses are doing a lot to help reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19, no public environment is completely risk-free,” said Harmon. “The 5 Commitments of Containment will help protect visitors and our community, long after they’ve left.”

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

El Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente del Condado de Eagle (ECPHE) recuerda a los residentes y visitantes sobre la importancia de la responsabilidad personal para controlar la propagación del COVID-19. Las medidas de precaución que cada uno tome siguen siendo cruciales para protegerse a sí mismos, a sus familias y a la comunidad.

En el transcurso de las últimas dos semanas, el 50% de casos de COVID-19 en el Condado de Eagle se presentaron en personas de hasta 30 años. Hay un cambio con relación a los meses de marzo y abril, en los que la mayoría de casos se produjo en personas entre los 40 y 55 años.

Durante el mismo período de tiempo, el 54% de los casos se vinculó a personas que estuvieron expuestas a un caso confirmado y que fueron identificadas durante el proceso de evaluación. El director de ECPHE Heath Harmon, dijo que "La buena noticia es que cada persona se encontraba en cuarentena, limitando así su exposición con otras personas cuando enfermaron".

Harmon también indicó que las personas con síntomas se realizaron las pruebas de manera temprana, lo cual es una buena tendencia."Sin embargo, sabemos que algunos continúan acudiendo al trabajo o a eventos sociales cuando están enfermos", dijo. “Quedarse en casa cuando uno está enfermo no sólo evitará exponer a nuestros amigos y seres queridos, sino que es fundamental para el bienestar de nuestros negocios".

Dependiendo de la aprobación de la divergencia estatal, el Condado de Eagle se está preparando para la transición a la fase del diamante negro de las ordenes de salud pública este 22 de Junio, y los funcionarios señalan los beneficios de que más visitantes regresen a la zona para la recuperación económica del condado. Salud Pública solicita el apoyo de todos los residentes dando un buen ejemplo a los visitantes manteniendo los 5 Compromisos de contención:

Mantendré 6 pies de distanciamiento social.
Me lavaré las manos con frecuencia.
Me cubriré la cara en público.
Me quedaré en casa cuando esté enfermo.
Me haré la prueba inmediatamente si tengo síntomas.

La orden de salud pública del Condado de Eagle prohíbe el ingreso de personas que hayan tenido síntomas confirmados de COVID-19 en los últimos 14 días. Además, los visitantes que desarrollen enfermedades durante su estadía deben permanecer dentro de su alojamiento sin salir, a menos que sea para recibir atención médica. Es posible que las personas confirmadas con COVID-19 requieran extender su estadía hasta completar 10 días de aislamiento. Asimismo, quienes han estado expuestos a alguien con COVID-19 pueden requerir extender su estadía para completar los 14 días de cuarentena requeridos. En ambos casos, una estadía prolongada correrá por cuenta del huésped.

"Aunque nuestra comunidad y las empresas locales están poniendo de su parte para ayudar a reducir el riesgo de exposición al COVID-19, ningún espacio público está completamente libre de riesgos", dijo Harmon. "Los 5 compromisos de contención ayudarán a proteger a los visitantes y a nuestra comunidad, tiempo después de que se hayan ido".
