Subject: Pegboard: Coronavirus Update
Boulder area residents,
Updated information on the coronavirus for the State can be found at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/
About 50 people have been diagnosed with the virus in Utah although this estimate is thought to be low due to lack of testing. Only about 200 tests per day are available. No cases have been confirmed in Garfield County. It is being recommended that people avoid gatherings of more than 10 people for the next 15 days. The Governor has ordered all bars and restaurants to suspend the dining-in option for now.
Garfield County also has a coronavirus website set up at https://www.garfield.utah.gov/departments/coronavirus-updates/-fsiteid-1
Sylas Navar, EMT, posted the protocol on pegboard to use if you think you may have contracted coronavirus and are experiencing the symptoms of sore throat, dry cough, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.
For Boulder Town residents, here is a quick recap of recent posts;
Even young people can contract the disease and can certainly be carriers. Please think about your interaction with our elders in town to keep them safe (Thanks Eric Feiler)
Grocery delivery is being offered by Hills and Hollows (Thanks Keri)
Hells Backbone Grill is doing takeout for locals and the food is still excellent. Call them to get details (Thanks Blake)
Boulder Elementary is dismissed from school to work online for at least two weeks (Thanks Elizabeth)
Falyn Owens, Garfield County Office of Tourism, has requested businesses advise her if you have changed your hours or have decided to close for a while, are doing curbside meals, or are an attraction with some visitor restrictions. Also, if you have an event that is going to be postponed or canceled please let her know.
It's our challenge to figure out how to maintain our social connections in these times. There are a lot of online tools but don't forget to make a phone call to a friend or neighbor to check in and have a little chat.
If you have pertinent information, please post on pegboard. Thanks to everyone for being attentive to this issue.
