KRAI News for Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020

Geoffrey Duzik Mug Shot

Geoffrey Duzik has been sentenced for multiple felony charges, to 24 years in state prison. One of those charges was for First Degree Attempted Murder after assaulting a detentions deputy at the Moffat County Jail. It happened when Duzik was at the jail for other charges. Chief Judge Michael O’Hara presided over the sentencing hearing last week. Duzik is still in the Moffat County Jail and will be there until the Department of Corrections calls to say they’re ready for him.

Moffat County Public Health is reporting two new cases of COVID-19 in the past week. One man is in his 50s and a woman in her 70s. That brings the total number of confirmed cases in Moffat County to 39 with 2,622 tests administered. Public Health also wants to remind the community of the mask order issued by Governor Polis. Masks are still required in Moffat County.

Routt County is reporting eight new cases of COVID-19 this week. The total case count in Routt County is at 148. Routt County Public Health is also reporting ten more confirmed cases of COVID-19 among people who are NOT full-time Routt County residents, but they are working in Routt County. They all work at a hunting camp in Routt County. Here’s Routt County Epidemiologist Nicole Harty.

That person went back home to their home state and got tested, and that test was positive. The hunting camp in Routt County was alerted and ten of the 14 employees at the camp also then tested positive, as well as some other guests who had already gone home. Those employees are in isolation. Routt County Commissioner Doug Monger says it’s a good lesson for the hunting outfitters who bring in guests from different states and regions.

Public Health wants to remind people to stay at home if you have symptoms so as not to infect others.
