SOS: Save our Season, Stop our Spread, Save our Stores
SOS is one campaign Grand County Public Health is currently promoting to draw attention toward the need to take COVID precautions to protect our much needed winter tourism season. SOS also reminds us to shop locally to keep our small businesses afloat during these difficult times. We encourage you to buy gift cards at local businesses and give them to local residents to shop at their leisure.
If you are symptomatic, we recommend contacting your Primary Care Physician first and foremost.
If you are a local, asymptomatic Grand County resident who has been exposed to a positive COVID-19 case, are on quarantine orders, or are a critical/frontline worker in Grand County, you may attend any of the scheduled GCPH antigen testing times. However, because the goal of this program is to detect and contain outbreaks quickly, we ask that asymptomatic people who have not had a COVID exposure or who are not a critical/frontline worker to please coordinate with their primary care provider to get tested. Symptomatic patients and those who are positive for COVID should also contact their Primary Care Physician about testing.
