Pitkin County COVID-19 Risk Level
Pitkin County is currently at a LOW level of COVID-19 risk
On May 13, 2021, the Pitkin County Board of Health voted to graduate from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) COVID-19 Dial. Effective May 28th, the majority of existing Pitkin County Public Health protective measures, will no longer be required. Two key exceptions are they will continue to require face coverings in public indoor settings and on public transportation. More information can be found in this newsflash.
In the absence of the dial, these three simple metrics will determine the overall risk level for Pitkin County
COVID-19 Hospital Capacity and Key Metrics
Pitkin County is closely monitoring local hospital capacity at Aspen Valley Hospital (AVH). See the “AVH Status” tab in the middle panel of this dashboard for more information. If AVH inpatient hospitalization and/or transfer capacity reaches the “concerning” level, capacity limits and public health requirements may be reinstated for the community. Visit the AVH website for more information on units and departments.
In addition, CDPHE will continue to monitor each county’s COVID-19 status, as well as regional hospital ICU and Acute Care bed capacity displayed in the bottom panel of this dashboard.
The middle panel will continue to display the three key metrics Pitkin County Public Health monitors to inform COVID-19 recommendations for our communities and businesses.
