COVID- 19 Exposure at Softball game in Walsenburg
On July 31, 2020, the Las Animas Huerfano Counties District Health Department learned of a possible COVID-19 exposure in Huerfano County. The health department investigated the situation and found that a person who tested positive for COVID-19 did play in two softball games in Walsenburg on Tuesday, July 28th and Thursday, July 30th. The person who tested positive for COVID 19 has been put into isolation. All persons whom have been exposed to the person who tested positive COVID-19 during the two softball games have been notified and are on a 14-day quarantine.
Individuals should monitor for symptoms consistent with COVID-19. If they do not develop symptoms within 14 days of these dates, there is nothing to be done. Those that develop symptoms within 14 days of these dates should contact their doctor and consider COVID-19 testing.

While this news may be unnerving for some, it is why we continue to urge residents to:
• Wear a mask when in public
• Maintain social distancing
• Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your face
• Disinfect commonly touched surfaces
