You can become infected by coming into close contact (about 6 feet or two arm lengths) with a person who has COVID-19. The COVID-19 virus is primarily spread from person to person from respiratory droplets when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Respiratory droplets are tiny drops of liquid that travel through the air when someone talks, coughs or sneezes. This is why it's important to wear a mask when in public spaces. You may also be able to get it by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes. Click on the website link below to learn more.

Telehealth and Nurselines

Statewide

Telehealth, also called telemedicine, is when you use your phone or computer to talk to a doctor or nurse. Telehealth is covered by all insurance plans in Colorado, including Medicaid. Visits cost the same as in-person visits for Medicaid and Medicare patients. If you don't have health insurance or a doctor, there are several online telehealth companies that will see you for a fee. Click on the website link below to learn about telehealth and nurselines. Nurselines provide advice from a nurse, and some are free. The video from Johns Hopkins Medicine shows how telehealth works.
