CDPHE: State extends public health order 20-20

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has extended public health order 20-20, requiring long term care facilities to schedule booster shot vaccinations clinics before the end of October 2021 for those eligible for the Pfizer booster shot. This eighth amended order went into effect Sept. 27, 2021 and will continue to be in effect until further amended or rescinded.

Vaccine effectiveness may decrease over time in some people, and a booster dose can help bring up immunity levels. Booster doses are common practice in routine childhood vaccines and require multiple doses at specific intervals to be most effective. 

Last week, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially recommended Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine booster shots for people at higher risk for COVID-19. Booster doses should be given at least six months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series. The updated CDC guidance recommends Pfizer booster shots for people 65 years and older, residents in long-term care settings, and people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions. The recommendations also state that people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions and people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional settings may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine.

Here is a brief summary of changes:

  • Adds a paragraph requiring that nursing homes, assisted living residences, intermediate care facilities, and group homes that have individuals who are eligible for a booster shot complete a COVID-19 booster shot vaccination clinic no later than October 25, 2021, and schedule such clinic no later than October 1, 2021.

CDPHE: Air quality health advisory in Garfield County for wildfire smoke

Issued for northern, central and western parts of Colorado

Issued at 8 a.m. MDT, Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment

Affected Area:  Moffat, Routt, Jackson, Rio Blanco, Grand, Garfield, Eagle, Summit, Mesa, Delta, Pitkin, Lake, Montrose, Gunnison, Chaffee, Saguache, Gilpin, Clear Creek, and Park. Locations include, but are not limited to Craig, Steamboat Springs, Walden, Rangely, Meeker, Hot Sulphur Springs, Glenwood Springs, Eagle, Vail, Breckenridge, Grand Junction, Delta, Aspen, Leadville, Montrose, Gunnison, Salida, Ouray, Saguache, Central City, Georgetown, and Fairplay.

Advisory in Effect:  8 a.m. MDT, Wednesday, September 8, 2021 to 9 a.m. MDT, Wednesday, September 9, 2021.

Public health recommendations: If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain indoors.  This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly.  Consider limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.  Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill.  If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.

Outlook:  Widespread wildfire smoke, originating largely from out-of-state wildfires, will impact the advisory area through at least Thursday morning.  The heaviest smoke concentrations are expected for north-central and northwestern Colorado along with sheltered valley locations throughout the advisory area.

CDPHE launches new self-report option in CO Exposure Notifications Service

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment

Today, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) announced that Coloradans have access to the latest innovation to the Exposure Notifications service -“self-report.” Self-reporting allows users to share their test results right away, including results from an at-home test, giving users another option to more quickly and conveniently report a positive COVID-19 test.  

Colorado in partnership with Google and Apple developed this feature in response to Coloradans’ requests for ways to more quickly and conveniently report positive COVID-19 cases within the Exposure Notifications service. Colorado is the first state to roll out this new feature. 

“Swift awareness and identification are key to slowing disease transmission in a time when the delta variant is so contagious. CO Exposure Notifications can alert individuals who would otherwise be unaware that they have been exposed to the virus, which is especially important for people who are asymptomatic and are unknowingly spreading the virus. The state is proud to have been a pioneer in making use of this technology, and we are thrilled to offer Coloradans and visitors a speedy and convenient option through this latest innovation to the CO Exposure Notifications service. We encourage everyone to opt-in if they have not already, and keep CO Exposure Notifications on their phones.” said COVID-19 incident commander Scott Bookman.

Currently, Colorado sends a code to all positive cases that have an accompanying phone number that are reported to CEDRS (Colorado Electronic Disease Reporting System). For thoses cases that already have Exposure Notifications enabled, they can enter the code or tap the included link and notify people they were around of a potential exposure. This process will continue. To self-report, users have the option within the Exposure Notifications service to request a verification code for their positive tests. Once a user’s phone is validated, the state sends an SMS with a verification code to submit their positive case within Exposure Notifications. The user can tap the included link and go through the proceeding steps to alert others of a potential exposure. Self-report is now available to Apple and Android users including those who currently have Exposure Notifications on their phone as well as new users.

To protect privacy, the user has full control to opt in to receive exposure notifications and can turn it off at any time. The service will never track your location — it uses Bluetooth rather than GPS. Your identity will never be revealed to anyone. The service will never collect, transmit or store any of your personal information.

El CDPHE lanza una nueva opción de autoinforme en el Servicio de notificaciones de exposición en Colorado

El Servicio de notificaciones ahora le da la opción al usuario para que pueda avisar a otros sobre una posible exposición al virus de forma rápida y conveniente

COLORADO (19 de agosto de 2021): El Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente de Colorado (CDPHE) ha anunciado hoy que los habitantes del Estado ya tienen acceso a la última innovación del Servicio de notificaciones de exposición en Colorado: el “autoinforme”. La opción de autoinforme les permite a los usuarios compartir los resultados de sus pruebas de detección de inmediato, inclusive los resultados de una prueba casera. Gracias a esta herramienta, los usuarios cuentan con otra alternativa para reportar de manera más rápida y conveniente una prueba positiva de COVID-19. 

En colaboración con Google y Apple, Colorado ha desarrollado esta herramienta en respuesta a los pedidos de sus habitantes que desean informar de forma más rápida y cómoda los casos positivos dentro del sistema del Servicio de notificaciones. Colorado es el primer Estado en poner en marcha esta nueva modalidad de reporte.

Scott Bookman, el comandante de incidentes, hizo estas declaraciones: “La concientización y rápida detección del virus son fundamentales para frenar la transmisión de la enfermedad en momentos en que la variante delta revela un alto grado de contagiosidad. Las notificaciones sobre exposición al COVID-19 pueden servir para alertar a algunas personas que, sin esta herramienta, no se darían cuenta de que han estado expuestas al virus. Esto es de particular importancia en el caso de individuos asintomáticos que están propagando el virus sin saberlo. Colorado se enorgullece de haber sido pionero en el uso de esta tecnología, y nos gratifica poder ofrecerles tanto a los habitantes del Estado como a nuestros visitantes una opción rápida y cómoda de reportar su exposición al virus a través de esta última innovación del Servicio de notificaciones. Alentamos a todos a que se inscriban, si aún no lo ha hecho, y a que mantengan estas notificaciones activadas en sus teléfonos”.

Actualmente, Colorado envía un código a todos los casos positivos con un número de teléfono registrado y que se notifican al Sistema electrónico estatal para el reporte de enfermedades (CEDRS, por sus siglas en inglés). Aquellos que ya tienen activadas estas notificaciones pueden introducir el código o pulsar el enlace incluido y notificar a las personas con las cuales estuvieron cerca sobre una posible exposición al virus. Este procedimiento seguirá vigente. Para autoinformar, los usuarios tienen la opción (dentro del sistema del Servicio de notificaciones) de solicitar un código de verificación para sus pruebas positivas. Tras validar el teléfono del usuario, el Estado de Colorado envía un SMS con un código de verificación para presentar su caso positivo dentro del sistema del Servicio de notificaciones. El usuario puede pulsar el enlace incluido y seguir los pasos indicados para alertar a otros sobre una posible exposición al virus. El autoinforme ya está disponible para los usuarios de Apple y Android, incluidos los que ya cuentan con Notificaciones de exposición en su teléfono, así como para nuevos usuarios.

Para proteger su privacidad, el usuario tiene pleno control para optar por recibir notificaciones o desactivar esta herramienta cuando quiera. El servicio nunca rastreará su ubicación, ya que utiliza Bluetooth en lugar de GPS. Jamás se revelará su identidad a cualquier otra persona. El servicio nunca recogerá, transmitirá o almacenará ninguna información personal.
