COVID-19 Update, 3/26/2020

With the number of Coronavirus cases throughout Colorado increasing daily, Governor Jared Polis issued a stay-at-home executive order due to COVID-19 to that took effect at 6 a.m. on Thursday, March 26 and lasting through April 11. 

“For Coloradans

To remain at home, only leave their home to engage in activities or perform tasks critical to their health and safety, or to the health and safety of their family or household members or to go to or return from critical work. They can leave their home to: 

  • Obtain food and other household necessities for themselves and their family or household members. o Deliver those services or supplies to others, such as, food, pet supply, other household consumer products, and products or equipment necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation, and critical operation of a residence.
  • To engage in outdoor activity, such as, walking, hiking, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, biking or running. For purposes of outdoor activity, State parks will remain open to the public to engage in walking, hiking, biking, running, and similar outdoor activities but all playgrounds, picnic areas, other similar areas conducive to public gathering, and attended areas shall be closed. 
  • To perform work for critical industries. 
  • To care for a family member, a vulnerable person, or pet in another household, or to care for livestock kept at a location other than an individual’s home. 
  • To seek medical care o Individuals experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 must self-isolate until their symptoms cease or until they have a negative test result.”

March 22, Governor Polis signed an executive order directing all of Colorado’s non-critical employers to reduce their in-person workforce by 50 percent and identifies critical business or operations that are exempt. 

Eagle County’s Public Health order preceded the state’s and contains the same elements but did not use the terminology ‘stay-at-home’ in the order. Eagle County order from March 13 was the first in Colorado, as was the emergency declaration on March 7. March 18, the order was revised to implement the same aggressive actions of the recent stay-at-home orders, ahead of most other communities.
