CANON CITY — Fremont County Health officials on Sunday confirmed a second coronavirus case here.

"The patient is a male in his 80s," said Mykel Kroll, Fremont County emergency manager. "The patient is working with public health officials in an ongoing investigation to identify people who may have had close exposure."

An adult female was reported as the county’s first positive coronavirus patient a week ago.
