COVID-19 testing – A message from the Mayor
Dear Louisville Residents,
Memorial Day weekend and warm weather feel like the perfect time for a party, but please remember that Colorado is still under the Safer at Home Order. More information will be available from the state soon, but regardless of what the next phase looks like, it won’t be a return to pre-COVID-19.
While you mark the beginning of summer and honor our fallen servicemen and women, please continue to do your part to limit the spread of COVID-19 by staying home when you can and keeping at least 6 feet apart from others when you can’t (even if you’re at a gathering of fewer than 10 people), practicing good hand hygiene, and wearing a facial covering in our local businesses or on crowded trails.
4th of July fireworks cancelled
In the interest of the health and safety of our community, the City has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual 4th of July fireworks celebration. As you may be aware, most Front Range communities, including Lafayette and Boulder, have already cancelled their fireworks displays. We know this is disappointing news, but we hope you understand that this decision was made to protect our community.
Increased access to testing supplies
Thanks to increased access to testing supplies, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is encouraging anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 to speak with a health care provider and get tested. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle pain, new loss of taste or smell, and chills.
Facial Covering Ordinance until June 5
Thank you again to all of the businesses and residents complying with the City Ordinance on facial coverings. Please remember that the ordinance is in effect in Louisville until at least June 5.
