Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

The City continues to monitor and respond to the rapidly changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) in collaboration with our expert partners. We are committed to keeping our residents and businesses informed and will be sharing daily updates via this newsletter. We are in the midst of some uncertain times and I remain encouraged and inspired by the amazing work of my colleagues, our regional and state partners, our local businesses and non-profits and the compassion and generosity of our community.

Business & Nonprofit Resources

In challenging moments, we encourage our community to adapt their support of local businesses (examples include being mindful of social distancing, pick up and go, and saving your visit for another day if you are feeling unwell). We need to remember to show kindness and support to our neighbors and local businesses to the best of our ability, as these connections have a major impact on the vitality of our community. 

The following industries will likely be impacted by a decline in consumer spending from COVID-19: travel, hospitality, retail, restaurants, and small businesses of all industries (including our minority-owned businesses).

We will continue to share new information as it becomes available. Please reach out to the Economic Health Office at business@fcgov.com with any questions.

Community Support

Adopt-a-Neighbor Program Expansion:
We are in a unique and uncertain time, but we are in it together. The coronavirus situation puts some of our friends, families and neighbors at greater risk. Yet, with all the uncertainty, we have the chance to show the world that Fort Collins is a truly exceptional community of people who rise up to help one another.

The City is seeking healthy volunteers to assist with services to our vulnerable populations. We are launching an expansion of the Adopt-a-Neighbor program to pair volunteers with neighbors in need during the current pandemic. Volunteers will assist neighbors who are vulnerable to COVID-19 with regular tasks, such as grocery shopping and delivery, picking up medications, basic errands, driveway shoveling, and pet care. Specific needs and schedules will vary and need to be coordinated by the volunteer and neighbor they are paired with for the program.
