Stay-At-Home Public Health Order March 26 through April 11

Colorado’s stay-at-home order went into effect March 26 at 8 a.m. You may still leave your home to take care of your health and safety, as well as for others in your home, including your pets.  This includes going to the grocery store, the pharmacy, pick up and drop off your laundry and dry cleaning, pick up to-go food – all considered essential trips. Banks and health care providers are also considered essential businesses.

Go for a hike, take a walk, ride your bike. Just do so keeping at least six feet away from the nearest person.

You are part of the solution to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Stay safely at home except for essential trips; create physical distance from others when you are outside your home; use your favorite technology to maintain important relationships. These actions combined will limit our collective risk and save lives.
