San Juan Basin Public Health has launched a Protect Our Neighbors dashboard to share information about La Plata and Archuleta counties’ progress toward the Protect Our Neighbors phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, where there are fewer restrictions needed on economic and social activity in order to contain the virus.
The dashboard indicates the progress each county is making toward meeting these criteria:
Sufficient hospital bed capacity.Sufficient personal protective equipment supply.Stable or declining COVID-19 hospitalizations.Fewer new cases of COVID-19.Sufficient testing capacity. Ability to implement case investigation and contact-tracing protocols. Documented surge-capacity plan for case investigation and contact tracing. Documented strategies to offer testing to close contacts. Both Archuleta and La Plata counties are currently at “Safer At Home Level 2,” which is the standard level, but if all metrics remain favorable, both counties will move to “Safer At Home Level 1” in the next two weeks, which will ease restrictions on certain types of businesses and on social gatherings.
