Boulder County Resident with Confirmed COVID-19 Dies

For Immediate Release

Contact: Chana Goussetis, Public Information Officer, 303.441.1457 

Boulder County Resident with Confirmed COVID-19 Dies

Boulder County, CO – Boulder County Public Health was notified on March 25, 2020, that a Lafayette resident in their 60s who had tested positive for COVID-19 has died. The individual had underlying health conditions that were exacerbated by their illness caused by COVID-19. This is the only confirmed death related to COVID-19 in Boulder County to date.

“Our hearts go out to this family,” said Jeff Zayach, Boulder County Public Health director. “My hope is that we all view this heartbreaking news as a solemn warning about the importance of heeding the Stay-at-Home Order and social distancing requirements in order to prevent more tragedies like this.”

Including the recent death, 62 Boulder County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 to date. Seven individuals are getting care in the hospital, 7 are currently under investigation, 23 residents are isolating at home, and 24 residents have now recovered. Those testing positive for the disease range in age from the teens to the 80s, and the average age is 46 years.

COVID-19 is primarily spread through respiratory droplets spread when a person with the illness coughs or sneezes. People who have prolonged contact within six feet of a person with the disease are most at risk of transmission.

Public Health officials ask residents to follow the Stay-at-Home order, including:

  • Staying at your place of residence and only leaving for essential activities.
  • Ceasing all business activity unless you work in an essential business.
  • Cease all public or private gatherings other than gatherings of a single household or living unit.
  • Cease all travel except essential travel.

Residents can learn more about the Stay-At-Home Order at www.boco.org/COVID-19. For general information about COVID-19, residents can call CO-Help at 303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911 or email them at COHELP@RMPDC.org. Both call centers have Spanish-speaking staff available.
