Two employees in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19 virus at Fremont County rafting business

FREMONT COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Two employees at Royal Gorge Rafting tested positive for COVID-19 about two weeks ago, according to owner Ty Seufer.

Seufer tells KRDO the rafting employees have been in quarantine at home and have not been to work since testing positive. No other employees have tested positive since.

Royal Gorge Rafting, Zip Line Tours and the Whitewater Bar & Grill are all on the same property. But the owner clarifies the two employees who tested positive two weeks ago only worked at the rafting business.

Tuesday, the Fremont County Health department urged anyone who was at the rafting business between July 13 and 19 be tested.

The owner tells us they are currently taking extra measures to disinfect and ensure social distancing at all three businesses. He says they are following all CDC guidelines.

All three businesses remained open and busy as of Wednesday.

Health officials classify the situation as an outbreak because it involves two people in the same location who tested positive within a short period of time.

Officials have scheduled a news conference for Thursday afternoon to provide more details on the situation. They were unavailable for comment Wednesday.
