Letter to the Community: A Message from David Blackburn, Salida Public Schools

The governor and public health orders now allow us to move forward with supporting families with distance learning. This is an important clarification as we do not expect “in-person” instruction to resume this academic school year. Students must engage the learning in order to complete the year. Our first focus is graduating Seniors and getting high school students complete credits for the school year.

Colorado Public Health Dept. Updates COVID-19 Testing Strategy

“Right now, due to limited supplies of testing kits and personal protective equipment, testing needs to be focused on the people who are the most at-risk from this disease and the people in charge of caring for and keeping the rest of us safe. It’s important to protect the most critical element of the healthcare system.We are working hard to get the supplies and capacity to move to broader public testing, but until then our message remains the same: if you have only mild symptoms, self-isolate and don’t wait for a test.”
Scott Bookman,
CDPHE COVID-19 Incident Commander.
