The CDPHE map above shows the two-week cumulative incidence rates for Colorado counties, with Montrose standing at 286 cases per 100,000 people in the last two weeks. (It's important to remember that this number is standardized for comparison to the rest of Colorado, and since Montrose has less than 100,000 in population, the number is greater than the number of cases). This number is on the higher end compared to the rest of Colorado. 

According to the NYTimes COVID tracker, Montrose Regional Health currently has 5 COVID-19 patients. Additionally, after a surge in January and early February, COVID cases are on a downward trend in both Montrose County and Colorado as a whole. 

The Montrose 1+ vaccination rate stands at 57 percent. 

Update 3/7: Colorado Newsline reports that Colorado is in the "best position" it's been in with the virus, according to the CDPHE director, with case counts and hospitalizations down.
