While the good news is hospitalizations are declining, the rate of this decline is slowing. We still need to continue doing our part to prevent our hospitals from being over capacity if (or when) there’s a second wave of COVID-19. #COVID19Colorado
Remember - other health emergencies still happen, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Colorado hospitals are safe and are here to care for you when you need it. Please don't delay seeking care! Find your nearest hospital ER here: https://cha.com/colorado-hospitals/find-a-hospital/
Practice social distancing by putting space between yourself and others. Continue to practice healthy habits, like washing your hands for at least 20 seconds and staying home if you’re sick, to help slow the spread of #COVID19.
