City of Littleton Update on COVID-19 — 03/26/2020
In an effort to avoid confusion and for consistency, the Tri-County Health Department today rescinded its Stay at Home Order issued March 25. Governor Polis and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) issued a statewide Stay at Home Order which went into effect this morning at 8 a.m. and will continue through April 11. For more information, visit the State of Colorado COVID-19 information page.
Many city and county emergency 9-1-1 systems are being inundated with COVID-19 questions. Instead of calling the emergency number, the city is asking residents to call 2-1-1 for any questions related to COVID-19. Only use 9-1-1 for emergency calls. The 2-1-1 Resource Navigators are available 24/7 and have access to translation services so they can communicate in over 170 languages. Coloradans can also reach 2-1-1 toll-free by dialing 866-760-6489 or by visiting 211Colorado.org.
