Specialists Urge Adults To Protect Children
In this week’s Path Forward event, U.S. Chamber President and CEO Suzanne Clark discussed ways to protect children from COVID with pediatric health specialists. The Path Forward, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation event series, helps business and community leaders find the answers they need to execute a responsible reopening strategy for a post-pandemic world. What Happened? Children under 12 are not yet eligible to receive the approved COVID vaccines and with most schools now gathering in person, the transmission of the virus among children is growing. During the hosted discussion, health professionals shared how parents can protect their children and spoke about the mental health impact of the pandemic on teens and children.  .. . . .. .. . . .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..................... .. .

Americans Need Government IT Systems
Technology continues to change each individual's way of living, including how we interact with the government. In 2001, only 30% of the American public e-filed their taxes; in 2019, the number roseto over 90%. As technology quickly develops, so do its uses within the federal government to better serve the American public with creative and innovative front-facing solutions. However, federal information technology (IT) has not been able to keep up with the private sector or our increasingly digital way of life. 


Join Employers To Protect Workers
America's business community plays a critical role in combatting the pandemic. Now that safe and effective vaccines are available, every business must rally around a common goal: accelerate vaccinations, reopen safely, and defeat the pandemic. Employers across the country are taking vital
steps to get the country back to health—and we are committed to providing you the expert guidance
and resources you need to get the job done. Join the Rally for Recovery today. Rally for Recovery Commitment, a U.S. Chamber-led program encouraging every company and organization to take three basic, but important, steps to get the country back to health and American workers back to work.

World Mental Heath Day
Governor Jared Polis and Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera marked World Mental Health Day (Oct. 10) ensuring that all Coloradans have easy access to mental and behavioral health care services which has been a priority for the Polis-Primavera administration since day one. In 2019, Governor Polis established the Behavioral Health Task Force, bringing together stakeholders and leaders at the state level, to determine how to best streamline Colorado’s behavioral health system in a way that cuts through bureaucracy, increases efficiency, and puts Coloradans first. The Task Force led to the Behavioral Health Blueprint and included a number of recommendations to the legislature, and this year, Governor Polis signed a number of landmark laws to address mental health. Mental Health Day

Free Application To College Days Set
To encourage more Coloradans to continue their education, Governor Jared Polis has announced that all 32 public colleges and universities in Colorado, as well as several private institutions will allow students to apply for free from Tues., Oct. 19 through Thurs., Oct. 21, 2021 as part of the fourth annual Colorado Free Application Days. “Earning a certificate or degree gives Coloradans the best opportunity to thrive in the profession of their choice,” said Gov. Polis. “Colorado is building back stronger and by eliminating this cost barrier, more Coloradans will have the opportunity to pursue those dreams. We need homegrown Colorado talent and bold ideas to make Colorado better than ever.”  of their own.

Colorado Increasing Minimum Wage In 2022
The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment’s (CDLE) Division of Labor Standards and Statistics (DLSS) announced the proposed new Colorado minimum wage, currently at $12.32 for 2021, will rise on January 1, 2022 to $12.56, or $9.54 for those receiving enough in tips for total pay to meet or exceed the full minimum wage. Annually inflation-adjusting the minimum wage is mandated by a section of the Colorado Constitution that Colorado voters adopted in a 2006 ballot measure (with the exception of 2017-20, when the minimum wage rose by larger amounts due to another ballot measure, in 2016, raising the minimum wage by 90-99 cents annually until it reached $12.00 by 2020).

Vaccines For More Than COVID Prevention
As students across Colorado head back to school, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) asks parents and guardians to keep vaccine-preventable diseases out of Colorado classrooms and help ensure continued and safe in-person learning. While children 11-years-old and younger are not yet eligible for any of the COVID-19 vaccines, there are other vaccines that protect them from 16 other infectious diseases, including measles, whooping cough, mumps, and varicella (chickenpox). The state is experiencing decreases in vaccination coverage as identified through aggregate, de-identified data self-reported to CDPHE by schools and child care providers for the 2020-2021 school year. With the exception of hepatitis B, immunization rates for school-required vaccines fell among kindergartners -- with coverage for polio and varicella falling below 90%.........

Local Vaccines
In Logan County, in addition to the Northeast Colorado Health Department (call 970-522-3741) there are several other locations offering vaccinations. .................................................... Local Vaccine Providers
