“Protecting the health of our force, families and our communities is our top priority,” The Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen.

The service member does not require hospitalization at this time.

The National Guard member is serving in the Colorado Army National Guard.

The Soldier is in his 30s and is a male resident of Douglas County.
