CPHA Statement on COVID-19 and Coronavirus regarding Public Health in the Rockies

Update on the 2020 Public Health in the Rockies Conference

While closely monitoring the impact of the new coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2020 Public Health in the Rockies Conference (PHiR) is proceeding as planned at this time.

PHiR is our biggest meeting of the year, offering important professional and networking opportunities for our community. Although the conference is still several months away, Colorado Public Health Association continues to monitor events related to COVID-19. As we learn more about this virus, we will make more informed decisions as the situation evolves.

The health and safety of our community is of primary concern. We are committed to the use of evidence in decision-making and are relying upon information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and local public health agencies. We are aware that a number of institutions have instituted temporary restrictions on travel, which may change as the course of the virus changes. 

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the public health professionals and allies in Colorado who are working tirelessly to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency. More information to come as we continue to monitor COVID-19.
