Direct access to information about COVID-19 (coronavirus) from your local public health department just got easier for residents and businesses in Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties.
On Wednesday, March 11, Douglas, Adams, and Arapahoe counties hosted a COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall with the opportunity to hear directly from Tri-County Health Department officials: Dr. John Douglas, executive director; Dr. Bernadette Ann Albanese, medical epidemiologist; and Michele Askenazi, MPH, CHES, the department’s director of emergency preparedness, response, and communicable disease surveillance. Tri-County Health Department serves more than 1.5 million people in Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas Counties and is the largest local public health agency in the state.
The virtual town hall, which included questions from residents, is available to rewatch below or on Adams County’s Facebook page and begins with President Trump's address to the nation the same night. A Spanish translation of the town hall is also available.
Tri-County Health Department officials provided updates on the status of the virus in the three-county area. They also provided information about proactive measures being taken to maximize community safety and other fundamental information such as: what is the transmission risk; what are the best actions individuals and businesses can take right now; and more.
