Jefferson County moved to Level Orange on COVID-19 Dial

Jefferson County, Colo. – Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) has been notified that as of today, January 4, 2021, the county is being moved to Level Orange on the Dial Framework by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). This move was announced by Gov. Jared Polis late last week in response to the statewide 13-day downward trend in cases.

To learn more about what Level Orange means for Jeffco, including the differences in restrictions by category, visit CDPHE’s Dial webpage.

In addition, JCPH released the Third Amended PHO 20-009, effective on Jan. 1, 2021, which is more restrictive than the state’s Dial and limits gatherings further in Jefferson County. Under PHO 20-009:
  • Indoor events are limited to 25% capacity or 25 people, calculated using the social distancing calculator, whichever is smaller.
  • Outdoor events are limited to 25% capacity or 75 people, calculated using the social distancing calculator, whichever is smaller.
  • Spectators at youth sporting events are prohibited.
“With the move to Level Orange, we are cautiously optimistic that our community will continue to see some of the positive trends we’ve seen since the slight bump after the Thanksgiving holiday, like a decreasing positivity rate and a decline in hospitalizations,” said Dr. Margaret Huffman, Director of Community Health Services at JCPH. “That said, we know this holiday season was pivotal. We are closely watching the data now to see if there will be a spike in cases and hospitalizations following our winter holidays to see what our next steps will be.”

The move to Level Orange will also have an important impact on businesses in the county. Jeffco was notified by CDPHE on Dec. 31, 2020, that our Five-Star Certification Program, which will allow certified businesses to operate one level higher than the county’s status, was approved.

Given the early elevation to Level Orange, CDPHE has stated certified businesses will not be able to take advantage of the Five-Star program and operate under Level Yellow until Jefferson County’s dashboard numbers have met the Level Orange requirements for 7 days, which include:
  • Incident rate less than 350 per 100,000 people
  • Percent positivity rate below 15%
  • Hospitalizations decreasing or stable for more than 8 days in the preceding 14-day period.
Although Jefferson County was moved to Level Orange on Monday, the county’s incident rate remains greater than 350 per 100,000 people.

In the past two weeks, there have been 2,402 total cases of the virus in Jefferson County, or 412.0 per 100,000 residents (12/17-12/30). On Dec. 31, 2020, Jeffco’s hospitals were reporting 62% capacity. Additionally, Jefferson County’s two-week average test positivity rate is 5.6%. 

“Jeffco’s businesses have been working hard since the beginning of the pandemic, and we’re hopeful the Five-Star Certification Program will offer some much-needed relief and opportunity,” said Jim Rada, Director of Environmental Health Services at JCPH. “We know we all are hoping for a return to more normalcy and routine in 2021. The Five-Star program is the latest in many recent steps toward a healthier Jeffco, such as increased testing capacity and the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine.”

In addition, there are important steps we all can take to lessen the spread of COVID-19:
  • Wear a mask to protect yourself and others, even after you receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Remember that wearing a mask has been proven to greatly reduce the spread of the virus between individuals.
  • Some early research has indicated that if you do contract the virus, masks could help reduce the dose, or how much of the virus is spread, which could lower the severity of the illness.
  • Watch your distance. Keep 6 feet or more apart and avoid gatherings with people who do not live with you.
  • Wash your hands often. Scrub for 20 seconds with soap and warm water. When using hand sanitizer, make sure to choose a product with 60% or higher alcohol content.
  • Get tested and stay home if you’re sick. There are many free testing sites around Jeffco, including a large-scale test site at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds and a mobile testing van that travels to both Conifer and Evergreen. Wait times at the test sites are frequently less than 30 minutes.
  • Be kind to your neighbors.  Check in on one another  and support your friends and loved ones, especially those who live alone or are homebound.
  • Support local businesses. Keep them open by slowing the spread. You can also show your support by ordering takeout or delivery from your favorite restaurant, keeping memberships when possible or purchasing a gift card to a local retailer this holiday season.

For more information about CDPHE’s Dial Framework, including guidance for the community and businesses under Level Orange, please visit  covid19.colorado.gov/covid-19-dial .

JCPH Provides Update on Vaccination Prioritization and Timeline

Jefferson County, Colo. – As of January 11, 2021, 18,734 Jefferson County residents have received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Of these, 3,799 have received both doses of the vaccine and are on their way to being more protected from COVID-19.

In Jefferson County, there are an estimated 15,000 healthcare workers in Phase 1A, as well as an additional 13,000 healthcare workers and 4,000 first responders classified under Phase 1B. That means that since our county has been focusing primarily on distributing the vaccine to these populations within Phase 1A and 1B, we are about halfway done with this first push of vaccination and well on our way to a safer, better-protected frontline against the pandemic.

The vaccination process will continue to require all parts of our health and medical system system – public health, hospitals, primary care providers and more – to work together with the resources we have to ensure that those who most need it receive the vaccine in as timely a manner as possible. That said, the resources currently available in Jefferson County, including the quantity of vaccine, are extremely limited. Vaccination efforts will not be uniform from county to county or system to system due to these challenges, and we know that demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is outpacing supply at this time.

“We are excited about the progress we have made as a county toward vaccinating more of our population, but recognize there is a long way to go, and that for those in our community who are anxiously waiting for their turn to get vaccinated, these efforts aren’t moving as quickly as desired,” said Dr. Margaret Huffman, Director of Community Health Services at JCPH. “The COVID-19 vaccine rollout has brought hope and shown us all a light at the end of the pandemic’s tunnel. However, as we try to deal with extremely limited quantities, we all must realize that it will take time to finish getting through the tunnel together.”

At JCPH, we are not currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine for the general public or individuals over 70 years old, as our department and all the local public health departments across the state have been asked to focus our efforts on the highest risk healthcare workers in 1A, as well as the moderate risk healthcare workers and first responders in 1B. All other providers, such as hospitals, health systems, pharmacies and safety net clinics, will be focusing on vaccinating persons 70 years of age and older.

To get more information about the vaccine:

If you are 70 or older and looking for information on how to get the COVID-19 vaccine, visit CDPHE’s website to find the most updated information on providers who are currently offering the vaccine.
Select Safeway and King Soopers pharmacies will begin to vaccinate Jefferson County residents who are 70 years of age and older next week. Due to limited COVID vaccine availability, there may be a 2-6 week wait to get an appointment. Registration links by site are in development, please continue to check www.jeffco.us/covid-vaccine for these as they become available. Please do not call individual Safeway or King Soopers stores.

If you are a health and medical provider, please complete a survey so we can add you to the network to receive important health alerts.

If you are a member of the general public looking for important public health emergency information, including updates about the COVID-19 vaccine, please sign up for “Jeffco COVID-19 Alerts” at www.jeffco.us/list.aspx .

“Public Health has decades of work in developing relationships with our community partners through our routine public health work. We’ve already learned so many lessons over the last year, and if we implement our years of planning and the on-the-ground work we’ve experienced since the start of the pandemic, and we will get through it by working as a united health and medical system serving our county in tandem,” Huffman said.

In the meantime, during this period of both hope and ambiguity, we encourage everyone to continue to take important steps to prevent the spread of disease. Please continue to wear masks, wash your hands frequently, keep at least 6 feet away from others and avoid gathering with those outside your household. COVID-19 testing is widely available, and we encourage everyone to get tested after any exposure they may have, as well as to stay home if they are or believe they could be sick.

Vaccine Resources - Park County Public Health

Vaccine Availability & Prioritization

Colorado will continue to receive a very limited supply of the first available vaccines from both Pfizer and Moderna. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has oversight of the distribution of all COVID-19 vaccine to local communities. Please review Colorado's prioritization and vaccination dashboard for details.

Park County Public Health is currently administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Phase 1 populations to ensure the very limited supply is distributed in a swift, fair, and efficient way. This phase focuses on healthcare workers, first responders, other frontline workers, and those aged 70 years or older.

If you qualify for Phase 1 and have not received your vaccine, you may sign-up for notification here. Please note, the form is for individuals who qualify for Phase 1 only and there is no list or required sign-up for Phase 2 and 3 populations at this time. Do not complete the form unless you qualify for the current phase, it will be rejected and only delays our process.

Phases 2 and 3 COVID-19 vaccine will be made available:
  • From pharmacies through a federal contract with 12 national pharmacy chains
  • Regular health care provider offices
When and where to get the vaccine will be widely advertised when it is available to residents who fit in Phases 2 or 3. All candidates for vaccine are screened for eligibility and walk-up appointments are prohibited.

Timelines are subject to change based on supply chains. Prioritization is subject to change based on emerging guidance, science, data and availability.

We encourage second home owners to receive their vaccine at their primary county of residence. Our allotment of vaccine doses from the State of Colorado is based on our population of primary residents. Second homeowners should inquire about vaccination in the county of their primary residence.

We understand there are a lot of questions. Please review the resources and information herein and stay tuned for more details and updates. If you need further assistance, please email the Park County vaccine resource center at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

JCPH Provides Update on COVID-19 Testing in Jefferson County

County will no longer partner with Curative, reminds community of current testing sites and plans for future testing expansion

Jefferson County, Colo. – On Jan. 20, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) alerted Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) of concerns with COVID-19 testing through Curative. Based on this new information, JCPH will no longer offer Curative testing in the county.

This change affects several testing sites previously run in partnership with Curative, including the Jeffco Fairgrounds site, as well as Curative Mobile Vans in Conifer and Evergreen. These locations have been temporarily closed but will quickly reopen through a partnership with CDPHE’s Rapid Response Team. The Jeffco Fairgrounds site will reopen Saturday, Jan. 23, and the Conifer and Evergreen sites will resume on their regular operating schedules (Wednesdays and Sundays, respectively).

“Testing for COVID-19 remains one of the most important tools for fighting the virus, and JCPH is committed to ensuring accurate and reliable testing is widely available to our residents,” said Christine Billings, Manager, Office of Pandemic Response at JCPH. “We want to assure residents there will be very minimal testing disruption as a result of this change.”

According to CDPHE, the primary concern with the Curative test is the potential for a false-negative result, meaning an individual could actually have COVID-19 and incorrectly receive a negative result. Anyone who was tested at a Curative site using an oral swab on or after Jan. 13 should get tested again using a nasal swab. If you were tested at a Curative site and received a positive result, assume you have COVID-19 and follow isolation protocols.

Where to Get Tested in Jeffco

To ensure COVID-19 testing remains accessible to Jeffco residents, JCPH requested temporary support from the state to immediately offer accurate and reliable testing at the Jeffco Fairgrounds, as well as at sites in Evergreen and Conifer (the same locations where Curative has been operating). COVID-19 testing will be provided at these sites by CDPHE’s Rapid Response Team in partnership with JCPH. We will offer nasal swab PCR tests, which evidence shows are accurate and reliable for detecting the virus that causes COVID-19. Tests will be processed by the state lab. At the same time, we are actively identifying a new testing partner who can help manage testing at these sites for the longer term; we will share more information when available.

Golden - Jeffco Fairgrounds (Reopening Jan. 23)
15200 W. 6th Ave Frontage Rd., Golden, CO 80401

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 12-8 p.m.
Saturdays and Sundays, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Conifer - Our Lady of the Pines Catholic Church
9444 Eagle Cliff Rd, Conifer, CO 80433

Wednesdays, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.

Evergreen - Buchanan Recreation Center
32003 Ellingwood Trail, Evergreen, CO 80439

Sundays, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.


Additionally, we remind residents that there are two FREE public testing sites currently serving the county:

Westminster - Fat Cats Westminster
10685 Westminster Blvd., Westminster, CO 80020

Daily, from 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Lakewood - STRIDE Community Health Center at Jeffco Stadium
500 Kipling St., Lakewood, CO 80226

Monday-Friday, from 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (or until testing supplies are depleted)

Looking Ahead: Expanding with New Test Sites in Jeffco

“We want to take this opportunity to let residents know that even before this change, we have been working to evolve our testing strategy to best meet the current needs of our community,” Billings said. “Our goal is to add several new sites in high-needs areas in the county.” In the coming weeks, JCPH plans to expand testing locations in Lakewood and Arvada. These additional sites are still in development and we will share more information soon.

For questions about Curative testing, please refer to CDPHE’s FAQ. For more information about COVID-19 in Jefferson County, including testing information, visit www.jeffco.us/coronavirus . Residents can also sign up to receive COVID-19 email and/or text alerts in English or Spanish at www.jeffco.us/list.aspx .

Colorado launches new COVID-19 vaccine hotline


REMOTE, (Jan. 25, 2021): Today, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment launched a new call center for the public to ask questions specifically about the COVID-19 vaccine. Now through the end of January, the vaccine call center is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 10 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Beginning Feb. 1, hours will extend to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new toll-free number is 1-877-CO VAX CO (1-877-268-2926).

Vaccine call center staff are trained to answer COVID-19 vaccine-related questions, provide information about vaccine providers across the state, and give general information about COVID-19. Fifty operators are available to answer calls and can provide information in multiple languages. Staffing will expand as call volume requires.

The 1-877-CO VAX CO number is the go-to for vaccine-related questions for the general public, but they should continue using the Colorado Health Emergency Line for the Public (COHELP) and 2-1-1 Colorado for general information about COVID-19, such as the number of cases in Colorado, the list of symptoms, or how you can protect yourself.

COHELP can be reached Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. by dialing 303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911.

2-1-1 Colorado Community Resource Navigators are available to help by phone, Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and can be reached by dialing 2-1-1 or toll-free 866-760-6489, or by visiting 211Colorado.org.

Right now, Colorado is in phase 1A and 1B above the dotted line of its vaccine distribution plan, which means frontline health care workers, first responders, and people age 70 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. Until the vaccine is widely available and used, and community immunity is achieved, it is important to continue taking precautions to slow the spread of the virus, like wearing masks, avoiding large gatherings, and practicing physical distancing. More information about Colorado’s vaccine efforts is available at covid19.colorado.gov/vaccine.

Continue to stay up to date by visiting covid19.colorado.gov.

Colorado lanza nueva línea directa para la vacunación contra el COVID-19

REMOTO, (25 de enero, 2021): Hoy, el Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente de Colorado abrió un nuevo centro de atención para asistir al público con preguntas sobre la vacuna contra el COVID-19. Desde ahora, hasta finales de enero, el centro de atención estará abierto de Lunes a Viernes de 9 a.m. - 10 p.m., Sábados y Domingos de 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. A partir del 1 de febrero, el horario de atención será de 24 horas, siete días a la semana.

Los empleados del centro de atención están capacitados para responder preguntas acerca de la vacuna contra el COVID-19, brindar información de proveedores en el estado y dar información general acerca del COVID-19. Hay 50 operadores disponibles para atender llamadas y pueden dar información en varios idiomas. El número de empleados se irá expandiendo a medida que la cantidad de llamadas recibidas lo exija.

El número 1-877-COVAXCO es donde el público general debe acudir para preguntas acerca de la vacuna, pero aún deben seguir utilizando la línea directa Colorado Health de Emergencia para el Público (COHELP, por sus siglas en inglés) y 2-1-1 Colorado para información general del COVID-19, como por ejemplo el número de casos en Colorado, lista de síntomas o cómo puede protegerse.

COHELP atiende de Lunes - Viernes, 9 a.m. - 10 p.m. Sábado y Domingos, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. llamando al 303-389-1687 o 1-877-462-2911.

Los Navegadores de los Recursos Comunitarios de Colorado 2-1-1 están disponibles a través del teléfono, Lunes - Viernes de 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. y pueden comunicarse al marcar 2-1-1 o la línea gratuita 866-760-6489 o ingresando a 211Colorado.org.

Actualmente, Colorado está en la fase 1A y 1B del plan de distribución de la vacuna contra el COVID-19, lo que significa que el personal de atención médica de primera línea, el personal de primeros auxilios y las personas de 70+ años de edad son elegibles para recibir la vacuna. Hasta que la vacuna esté ampliamente disponible, utilizada y se logre una inmunidad colectiva; es importante que continuemos cumpliendo con las medidas de precaución para disminuir la propagación del virus, como utilizar un tapabocas, evitar reuniones grandes y mantener la distancia física. Más información acerca de la vacuna contra el COVID-19 en Colorado está disponible en covid19.colorado.gov/vacuna.

CDPHE is doing a live-stream update right now on their Facebook Channel and Zoom. Here's the link for the Facebook feed, hopefully they'll make the Zoom video available later for those who don't have FB.

Quick notes:
The majority of group 1A have been vaccinated so they are switching focus to getting 1B individuals inoculated - ages 70 and up. Approximately 51% of that group has gotten at least one dose so far. Gov Polis announced last week that ages 65-69 and teachers would able to receive their 1st dose starting February 8th (Group 1B.2), and CDPHE goes into further details in this update for the next group after that, Group 1B.3 whom they hope to begin in early March. Group 1B.3 are frontline essential workers and Coloradoans with 2 or more comorbidities (see list in screen shot below), and those doses will be coordinated through employers.


"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill
