Garfield County health officials have seen a spike in new cases of COVID-19  in the past week, which could put the County’s variance from the state in jeopardy. The county is now at 244 cases since the pandemic began, with 44 diagnosed between June 8th and the 21st.

The variance could be rescinded if the county sees 60 cases in any two-week period. The county’s move into the next state-wide re-opening phase could also be at risk.The state may not allow counties with a high level of disease transmission to move into the next stage. Garfield County has jumped from low to high risk.
