The second “presumptive positive” case of COVID-19 that Governor Polis spoke about this afternoon is an older adult woman from Douglas County who was exposed during an international cruise. This case is not related to the Summit County visitor.

“She is currently isolated at home and has had limited public contact, including with her family members and healthcare providers. Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) staff is monitoring people who may have been exposed,” said John M. Douglas, Jr., MD, Executive Director of Tri-County Health Department. “We are hoping that she recovers quickly.”

The case is a “presumptive positive” because the initial testing was done at the state level, and test results will be confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). TCHD is working closely with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to continue this active investigation and to protect the health and safety of Coloradans.

“There has never been a more important time for citizens of Douglas County to recognize that they as individuals are part of the solution,” said Roger Partridge, Chair of the Board of Douglas County Commissioners. “Everyone has the opportunity to be part of a broad community-wide response against the spread of this virus by following these simple and basic guidelines offered by Tri-County Health and other public health agencies statewide,” Partridge said, referring to the following:
