COVID-19 Information & Resources

 

Stay up to date on developments and resources in regards to the Colorado General Assembly here. See below for Rep. Cutter’s comments.

Governor Polis has declared a state of emergency, which allows him to take a number of actions to protect public health. These steps include providing paid sick leave to certain workers and opening a drive-up testing center for anyone who has a note from a doctor stating they meet the testing criteria. He has also asked the Division of Insurance to require health insurance plans to waive co-pays and deductibles for COVID-19 tests.

For additional information, you can reach out to Jefferson County Public Health, and CDPHE also has resources available here. Remember to frequently and thoroughly wash your hands, wear a mask in public spaces, avoid touching your face, and cover coughs and sneezes. Please stay home from work if you are sick, and regularly clean all surfaces and devices, such as cell phones.

I want you to know that we all take our commitment to this state and our constituents very seriously. I will do whatever I can as a legislator, and also as a private citizen, to help my community get through this. In the meantime, the local news media is sharing information as soon as it is available, and doing a wonderful job of keeping Coloradans informed. If we avoid panic (and hoarding!), take all recommended healthcare precautions, and work together to support one another, we will get through this and revive our economy.

- Representative Lisa Cutter
