As some of you may have learned, Huerfano County now has its first confirmed case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Though this development was inevitable and expected at some point, all of us at Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the 64-year-old patient and his family.
This diagnosis reinforces to all of us how critical our efforts are in reducing the spread of the virus – even in our sparsely-populated region. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of proper handwashing, social distancing and in-home quarantine.
This region has a long history of overcoming challenges and we are confident that we’ll once again rise to the challenge. Thank you and please follow our Facebook page for additional updates, tips and other information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
