CML Statement on Potential COVID-19 Exposure at Congressional City Conference

From March 7-11, more than 80 municipal officials from Colorado, as well as Kevin Bommer, CML executive director, attended the National League of Cities Congressional City Conference in Washington, D.C. 


On March 17, we were notified that two members of the Colorado delegation had tested positive for COVID-19. In order to protect these individuals' confidentiality, the League will not be releasing names or other details about them. 


Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of CML members and the public, the League notified attendees that they may have come into contact with an infected individual 


In consultation with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), CML advised all attendees of the conference from Colorado to quarantine until the end of the day on March 25, which is 14 days after the last known contact with infected persons. 


The two individuals who tested positive have sought medical treatment and are recovering well. The other attendees are following the self-quarantine recommendation, and none have reported having symptoms.
