Garfield County Gets Close To Opening 4/27

Garfield County Public Health is closely following direction from Governor Polis outlined in the April 20th, 2020 press conference as we move from “Stay At Home” to “Safer At Home.” Local Public Health Agencies are being tasked with modifying the orders to best keep their populations safe and healthy, while also allowing economic sectors to reopen.

The “Safer At Home” orders will begin on April 27th, 2020. Garfield County wants to give our local businesses and agencies time to review the Roadmap Criteria and complete a plan for their agency using the Garfield County Business Social Distancing Plan guidance. Businesses and agencies in Garfield County should determine if they are high, medium, or low risk, complete the “Garfield County Business Social Distancing Plan,” and submit the form online at: www.garfield-county.com. To allow adequate preparation time, we will begin Phase I implementation on May 4th, 2020. This will align Garfield County with state efforts. The form is included as part of this packet and can be filled in manually and submitted via email to: consumerprotection@garfield-county.com, or fax 970-625-4804, or via mail: 194 W 14th St, Bldg A, Rifle, CO 81650. For questions please call: 970-625-5200, ext 8120
