If you are visiting Snowmass and/or Colorado and believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 and start showing symptoms (fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath), follow the steps below:
- Stay inside your lodging/residence: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 may be able to isolate at their lodging/residence during their illness. You should restrict activities outside your lodging/residence, except for getting medical care.
- Avoid public areas: Avoid public areas as much as possible.
- Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- Practice social distancing (staying 6ft apart from other individuals) to decrease the risk of transmission to save lives.
- Separate yourself from other people. As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
- Call ahead before visiting a doctor. Call your medical provider or a nurse line first and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

With the situation evolving rapidly, we encourage the traveling public to follow any guidance offered by the CDC and local and state public health authorities (see above for links to resources).
Take Simple Disease Prevention Measures:
• Frequently and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, or use your inner elbow or sleeve.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay home if you are sick, and keep your children home if they are sick. Talk to your employer about working from home if necessary.
• Practice social distancing (staying 6ft apart from other individuals) to decrease the risk of transmission to save lives.
• Clean surfaces in your home, and personal items such as cell phones, using regular household products.
