Stage Two: Safer-At-Home Begins


Yesterday, Denver and surrounding areas moved into "Safer at Home". Governor Polis provided an update on Colorado's response to COVID-19. He reminded Coloradans about the importance of wearing masks during Safer at Home, and how we all play a critical role in protecting others. 
Being successful during Safer-at-Home phase has four main components:
  • For most of the population, continuing to stay at home most of the time.

  • For seniors & those with chronic health conditions, it means staying at home unless absolutely necessary.

  • Stepping up testing, containment, and tracing. 

  • Wearing masks at all times when in public.

Colorado Mask Project 

Visit  ColoradoMaskProject.com as a resource on how to make a mask and provides a list of retailers where one can be purchased. The Colorado Mask Project is a collaboration between state government, private sector donors, NGOs, and maker communities to deliver non-medical cloth masks to vulnerable populations and essential workers around the state. So far, 82,024 masks have been distributed to 162 recipient organizations across 42 counties, and many more are on the way. All masks have gone to vulnerable populations and critical workforce with a high risk of exposure and limited access to protective equipment, including homeless shelters and rescue missions, assisted living centers, elderly care, mental health, nursing homes, and public school workers providing meals for low-income families.

Connect to Care Jobs

The state is launching “Connect to Care Jobs” through the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF), in partnership with Advancing States, to match health care job seekers with immediate openings in residential care settings. Many Coloradans are looking for work, and these facilities are in need of extra support during this challenging time. Job seekers should visit connecttocarejobs.com to apply. Job seekers can create a profile identifying the position they are interested in, the distance they are willing to travel for the position, and other professional skills and experience to make sure the right person can be matched to the right position.
