The latest Lake County community update is available here.
Lake County, which was hit much later than surrounding counties, remains at 27 positive COVID-19 cases, with 712 tests (PCR and antibody) conducted to date. The tension between the economic necessity to reopen, and the concerns over public safety as it does, is one that it shares with many other mountain communities.
As mountain counties work to address how to open up our communities and keep residents safe, face coverings have become an issue as a minority have resisted them. LCPHA says that it is working on a campaign to help highlight how the community is working together to help keep each other safe by wearing face coverings at work and while out in public.
It is asking that residents/ office groups and teams email (LakeCountyPIO@gmail.com) or text (719-293-5737) a picture of you and/or your team/staff wearing a face covering or mask to be included in upcoming outreach materials. Their message is a simple one: “Please help LCPHA model this important behavior for others!”
The LCPHA also wants the public to know that those who need a face covering can get a free facemask by reaching out to Lake County Build A Generation or by calling them at or call 719-398-0017.
