Safer at Home: Be Smart, Save Lives

April 27, 2020: Governor Polis issues Safer at Home Executive Order. Under the Safer-at-Home Order, Coloradans should continue to stay home as much as possible. The Order directs vulnerable populations, including seniors, to continue staying home and only leaving when absolutely necessary. The Executive Order is tentatively set to expire 30 days from April 27, 2020, but can be amended or extended at any time.

Summary of the order:

  • On Monday, April 27, retail businesses can open for curbside delivery. Real estate home showings can resume. Voluntary or elective medical, dental, and veterinary surgeries and procedures may resume if facilities are following required safety protocols. Read more about Safer at Home guidelines and business openings.
  • On Friday, May 1, retail businesses can phase-in a public opening if they are implementing best practices. Personal services can open if they are implementing best practices
  • On Monday, May 4, offices can reopen at 50% reduced in-person staffing capacity, if best practices are being implemented to protect the health and safety of employees. Businesses are encouraged to allow employees to continue telecommuting at higher levels if possible. Child care facilities can also expand or reopen if they are following Safer at Home requirements.

Under this order:

  • Local governments can implement the guidelines of Safer at Home to match the State.
  • Local governments can go further than the State, including but not limited to stay-at-home orders or additional protective measures.
  • Local governments can relax guidelines more than the State. To do so, local governments will need to demonstrate proof of 14 consecutive days of decline of infection of COVID-19 in the county. They also must submit an application to CDPHE that includes a written COVID-19 suppression plan approved by the appropriate local public health authority, all hospitals within the jurisdiction, and elected leadership.

April 22, 2020: Governor Polis this week discussed the three levels of social distancing, which include: Staying at Home, Safer at Home and Protect our Neighbors. Colorado is moving into the Safer at Home phase, which is estimated to begin April 27. While we are at this level, Coloradans will no longer be ordered to stay home, but are still strongly encouraged to do so. Vulnerable populations and seniors must continue staying home except when absolutely necessary. Read more about this announcement and stay informed!

Message From The Town

We understand that the news about COVID-19 (2019 novel coronavirus) may be creating concern and worry for some people. 

We wanted to let you know that we are continuing to monitor the outbreak closely and are in close and regular contact with the Carbon Valley Emergency Management Agency and the Weld County Health Department. We are continuing to closely monitor the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and CDC. We have plans, partnerships, and resources in place to support the community. We are working in close coordination with our regional public health partners, hospitals, school districts, and the first responder and health care communities.

This is a time for all communities, families, and individuals to focus on preparing. We must work together to protect those in our community who are most at risk of severe disease, particularly the elderly and people with underlying health conditions.
