Colorado has started to deconstruct two of the alternate care sites that were built at the height of the COVID pandemic, according to an article on the 9News website.

Three others – including the temporary field hospital at the Colorado Convention Center – will stay in place.  The field hospital was supposed to have up to 2,000 beds but now has just 250, according to an earlier 9News article.

The Ranch Complex in Loveland and Western Memory Care Center in Grand Junction are being closed. 

“At this time, with a 3.41 seven-day average positivity rate, the state feels like it’s safe to close these two sites,” according to Colorado’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (OEM).
