PUEBLO — The number of new COVID-19 cases in Pueblo County is dropping dramatically.

Tuesday, the Health Department said Pueblo is down to 73 cases per day, compared to nearly 250 daily cases in November.

Health officials said people are doing their part by making sacrifices and changing holiday plans to stay safe.

"We are not out of the woods yet. We really need to continue to work together as a community to bring our numbers down so we can get back to those levels we were at at the end of the summer," Public Health Director Randy Evetts said.

The current curfew in the City of Pueblo is set to expire Jan. 1 at 5 a.m. Mayor Nick Gradisar is still deciding whether or not to extend the curfew.
