Blue Phase Service Updates

Fence in the Summer

Cordillera is slowly, and safely, reopening. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize our community as a whole, the CMD and CPOA Boards as well as staff for their compassion, precaution and concern for the common good over the past few months.

We are excited to share updates on our services in Cordillera. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we move forward together with health, safety and well-being as our priority.

On June 22, Eagle County amended its Public Health Order. The intermediate, or blue, phase allows for: 

  • Allows gatherings of up to 50 people. Six feet of distance is still required between non-household members. Multiple groups of 50 must be spaced 20 feet apart.
  • Allows dine-in service at restaurants and bars at a reduced capacity, with social distancing protocols in place. 
  • Allows short-term lodging to reopen. 
  • Allows outdoor recreation businesses, such as guided tours, and areas with high-touch equipment like playgrounds, to open if social distancing and sanitation requirements are met. 
  • Requires all visitors to be free of any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 for 10 days prior to arrival in Eagle County. 
  • Continues requirements for people who are sick and for people who have been exposed to someone who is sick. 
  • Continues requirements for all businesses to create and visibly post a Social Distancing Protocol, explaining how the business is achieving all social distancing, sanitizing and cleaning, and other requirements.

The county has a Q&A and Ecemergency.org website that are frequently updated. 

As we prepare to enjoy all that Cordillera offers, we must remain diligent in protecting our health and others. We are complying with ECPH orders and taking additional preventive measures where appropriate.

As you come home and have family and friends visit, we strongly request everyone to: 

  • Limit your interactions with non-household members for the first 14 days of your stay and following the “Five Commitments of Containment.”
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance as it is one of the most effective prevention measures against COVID-19. 
  • Keep distance from any person who is outside of household. 
  • Wash hands often, especially after visiting public settings, businesses, before eating or touching face. 
  • Cover face in public, especially whenever not able to maintain physical distance from others. 
  • Wear a face covering when entering an indoor public environment, like a grocery store or post office. 
  • Stay home when sick. Isolate from others, including household members, to help protect them and limit the spread. 
  • Get tested immediately if experiencing symptoms. Test early after symptoms develop, which can help prevent spreading COVID-19 to other people. 

If you’re not feeling well, please contact your primary care provider and plan to be tested. Find testing sites here. Please call CMM at 970-926-6340 with questions.
