Pueblo, CO Wednesday, March 11, 2020 -The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment (PDPHE) continues to respond to developments related to the COVID-19 outbreak, and part of that response is to ensure that accurate, timely information is being shared to the greater Pueblo community.

As a result, PDPHE partnered with multiple local governmental, public safety, health, and educational agencies to create a Unified Message COVID-19 group, whose goal is to share timely, accurate information to the public, with the PDPHE as the lead.

PDPHE is also in regular contact with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in order to obtain relevant information.

Public Health alerts and any response measures taken related to COVID-19 will be posted for the general public via PDPHE’s Facebook and Twitter channels (@PuebloHealth), with partner organizations sharing those posts. Additionally, press releases and press conferences will be organized and led by PDPHE, with partner agencies playing a supporting role as needed.
