In response to the recent local (and national) surge of the highly contagious Delta variant of COVID-19, the Town of Mountain Village will once again be distributing KN95 masks to residents and business owners.
San Miguel County Public Health is strongly encouraging that KN95 masks be worn indoors, and it is recommended that public facing staff wear KN95 masks or double mask.
KN95 masks are now available for the public to pick up (8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday) from the Telluride Ski & Golf guest services kiosk adjacent to the ticket office, at the bottom of the stairs to the gondola in Village Center, or from the Village Court Apartments main office.
“Out of an abundance of caution to keep our community healthy, Mountain Village will offer KN95 masks to our residents and employees,” said Business Development and Sustainability Director Zoe Dohnal. “We would also like to remind business owners to encourage their employees to be vaccinated, stay home if sick and get tested for COVID-19 to prevent the spread of this virus in our community.
Any Mountain Village business that would like bulk amounts for employees may email [email protected] to arrange mask pick up.
San Miguel County Public Health offers free weekly COVID-19 testing in both Mountain Village and Telluride and continues to host vaccine clinics. Mountain Village testing is currently each Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. near Sunset Plaza adjacent to the Blue Mesa condominium building. Testing has also resumed at the Lawson Hill Intercept Lot Mondays and Tuesdays 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
