03/25/2020 — Latest Information on COVID-19 Response in Littleton
The Tri-County Health Department issued a Stay At Home Order today effective tomorrow at 8 a.m. The City of Littleton will comply with this order to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The order is in effect until April 17. The order contains detailed information about which businesses can remain open. Visit tchd.org to read the full order.
“COVID-19 is putting us to the test,” said Littleton Mayor Jerry Valdes. “By now some people are starting to experience a little bit of cabin fever. I know I am. It seems like we don’t have much control over what’s going on. However, we have more control than we realize. We can take control over how we structure our days during this event. We can take care of ourselves both physically and mentally. We can give ourselves time-out from the radio, TV, and the internet. Go outside and breathe some fresh air. Take a walk. See how many birds you can identify. Go fishing. Clean out your closet, it is Spring after all. Write down what you are experiencing during this event. Maybe one day the Littleton Museum will include your memories in a special exhibit. Future generations will learn how our community came together and successfully handled a difficult time in our history. Take care and maybe we’ll see each other on a walk.” To watch a video of Mayor Valdes’ message to the community, visit the city's Facebook page.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that everyone be counted in the 2020 Census. Most homes in Littleton should have received a letter listing the options on how to complete it. Even though Census Day is April 1, many people have already responded. So far, Littleton residents (22.9%) have turned in their census at a rate higher than the national self-response rate (21%), and the Colorado response rate (21.2%).
With the rapid spread of COVID-19, law enforcement has seen an increase in COVID-19 related scams. Scammers, and sometimes well-meaning people, share information that hasn’t been verified. Before passing on any messages, paying someone, or sharing personal information, do some fact-checking by contacting trusted sources. Here are some tips to help prevent being scammed:
- Don’t click on links from unknown sources.
- Watch out for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus.
- Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There are no vaccinations at this time.
- Be alert to “investment opportunities.” The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is warning people about online promotions, including on social media, claiming that the products or services of publicly-traded companies can prevent, detect, or cure coronavirus and that the stock of these companies will dramatically increase in value as a result.
The Littleton Immigrant Resource Center continues to provide services to clients. Self-study guides and lessons have been sent to students and distance learning continues to be provided. ESL volunteers and citizenship tutors are meeting their students with audio and video platforms.
