There have been no reported COVID-19 deaths in the last week in Montrose or Delta counties, but there were 31 cases in Montrose and 17 cases in Delta.
Those case numbers lead to a cumulative incidence rate for Montrose and Delta in the “high” region. However, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s own graphics show a “very high” incidence rate over the same period of time, so I’ve been in contact with them about the discrepancy, and I’ll be sure to report back here with any new information.
Either way, both numbers put Montrose and Delta counties in the “high” region or above. These labels come from the state.
Additionally, as of July 11, nearly all of the reported cases of COVID-19 in Colorado were the Delta variant.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments below.
