  • What to do if you receive a positive COVID-19 test result during your visit:
    • Follow CDC isolation protocol: Isolate the as soon as possible. Per El Paso County Health, you should isolate in place (e.g., in your hotel room) and make arrangements for food delivery. If you share a hotel room with another person, you will need to book an additional room. You may also need to adjust your plans for traveling home. If you attempt to board an airplane or use public transportation, you will be put on a no board list.

    • Fully Vaccinated
      • No quarantine is necessary. The CDC recommends that fully vaccinated individuals who were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 get tested 3-5 days after exposure and wear a mask for 14 days or until the test result comes back negative.
    • Unvaccinated/Partially Vaccinated Close Contact
      • Follow CDC quarantine protocol: Quarantine as soon as possible. Per El Paso County Health, you should quarantine in place (e.g., in your hotel room) and make arrangements for food delivery.
