HIGHLIGHTS, Feb. 2, 2021, County Commissioners meeting

• Health Department Environmental Director Greg Rajnowski expressed some relief that COVID-19 infections have begun to drop from all-time highs in December and January. However, there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding vaccine distribution. Rajnowski believes vaccines may have been distributed to local pharmacies and nursing care facilities that are not being included in the data, while Commissioner Don Suppes believes rural Colorado is being short-changed by a politically motivated Polis administration. Rajnowski hopes to learn more about how the distribution is calculated in the coming weeks.
• CDOT and Bustang Outrider presented Commissioners a plan to add four additional bus routes to the popular line. One new line would run from Grand Junction to Telluride passing through Delta. CDOT officials are surveying the public for feedback about the proposed new route: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Telluride-GJ
