Colorado Radon Mitigations Increase During COVID–19 Stay-at-Home Period

One aspect of the COVID – 19 pandemic, stay at home for two months, as ordered by the Colorado Governor, has resulted in an increase in radon mitigations, notes Chrystine Kelley, Radon Program Manager with the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment. With people staying at home, they have become more conscious of the results from testing earlier in the year when the department gave numerous test kits to the public during National Radon Action Month. During their time at home, they have been mitigating excessive radon levels in an effort to create an even safer indoor environment.

Radon testing and mitigation was considered an essential service by the Governor’s orders, and those services were allowed to continuing operating. They have been busier than ever, Chrys reported.
