Routt County has to submit a mitigation plan to the state of Colorado because of a continued high number of new cases of COVID-19. There are sixteen new cases in the past week with 37 in two weeks. One case included a second student at Steamboat Springs High School. Routt County Commissioner Tim Corrigan says if the public doesn’t start trying harder to avoid getting Covid, the Board of Public Health would have to impose more rules and start enforcing those rules to get the disease under control.
Routt County has 210 total cases and Moffat County has 73.
