An approved COVID-19 vaccine is on the way, so there is light at the end of this long, dark tunnel. We ask our community to hang in there with the mask wearing and physical distancing for a while longer while the vaccine is distributed through to the public.

Be sure to join Boulder County Public Health for weekly updates on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m.

If you do not intend to contribute to the Q&A sessions during the Weekly Updates, please feel free to simply view the live stream of the meeting on YouTube at www.boco.org/PHYouTube. (We have a 500 person maximum on Zoom and want to hold those spaces for members of the public who have questions to ask our experts)

For general information about Boulder County services and COVID-19 questions, call for information at 720-776-0822.
