Mesa County Public Health is recommending postponing or canceling non-essential travel.

Everyone should seriously consider canceling non-essential travel, especially if:

COVID-19 cases and outbreaks are occurring in many states and countries around the world, including in Colorado. Community spread is likely to occur in most places of the U.S.

If you are traveling, practice simple prevention measures that will prevent the spread of COVID-19 (and other germs).

Masks are not recommended for people who are currently healthy (not experiencing symptoms) to prevent the spread of germs. Masks are only recommended for people experiencing symptoms and for healthcare workers.

Upon returning from any travel, it is important to watch for the development of any respiratory symptoms (such as a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing). If you develop symptoms, call your healthcare provider first. Do not go to the facility in-person or the emergency department unless directed by phone or if it’s a medical emergency.
