Loren Ahonen, Gunnison County Public Information Officer; and Andy Bertapelle, Chief Nursing Officer for Gunnison Valley Health. Cases of COVID-19 in Gunnison County soared last week. The number of residents who tested positive tripled. The hospital saw a corresponding increase in visits related to the virus.
