Garfield County resolution on COVID guidance

During the April 19 Board of County Commissioners meeting, the board passed a resolution providing guidance following the expiration of the statewide COVID-19 dial executive orders. Counties are now able to implement regulations at the local level, though there are still some limited requirements being maintained across the state.

United to Stop the Spread | Unidos Paremos El Contagio

This county-wide initiative is aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19 to keep our valleys safe and open. It will take us all of us doing our part to make this happen.


It’s time to act now before it’s too late to save our ski season. At this point it’s on us – if we don’t do something the State of Colorado could be forced to close ski mountains, hot springs and beloved attractions, causing the collapse of many struggling mountain businesses. We have to change our behavior today to quickly reduce COVID transmission. And we can!


By now we all know what social distancing is. Let’s pledge to stop COVID spread by following the prevention guidelines published by health and government leaders. Limit contact to your family or household unit.
