Masks and face coverings
Public Health strongly recommends wearing a mask in public indoor settings — regardless of vaccination status — in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations.
An epidemic number of pertussis (whooping cough) cases are spreading in the state, and the nation. Parents, grandparents, caregivers and siblings are urged to get the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis) vaccine to protect the infants and children in their care.

Visit your family health care provider or contact a nearby pharmacy to find out if the vaccine is available.
The vaccine is also available at El Paso County Public Health. To find out if you meet eligibility requirements call (719) 578-3199 and select the option for Immunizations.
