Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

Yesterday the governor laid out a series of guidelines that will determine how the state can begin to come out of the current Stay-at-Home orders. While specifics have yet to be announced, the focus remains on how we can begin a return to business without causing another spike in COVID-19 cases.

At the local level, we are carefully watching the guidance from the state, as well as holding similar conversations with the Larimer County Department of Health & Environment. This is a careful balance that must be approached thoughtfully for the health and safety of our entire community, including our businesses.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager


Governor’s Update
On Wednesday, Governor Polis announced the key indicators that will guide social distancing measures moving forward. These are focused on sustainability and ensuring that Coloradans are able to safely earn a living without the risk of running out of hospital beds after the expiration of the Stay-at-Home order. The governor said that until Colorado builds immunity - through a vaccine or herd immunity - or until scientists are able to deliver a truly effective clinical treatment, the state will need to:

  • Implement social distancing measures in an economically and psychologically sustainable manner 
  • Ensure the capacity to care for those who are ill (COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 related illnesses) without sacrificing the quality of care
  • Increase efforts to prevent infection in vulnerable Coloradans 

Within the next five days, the state expects the data and the science to determine what level of suppression the Stay-at-Home order has achieved. Also within the next five days, the state expects to have the data and science to determine what level of ongoing social distancing Coloradans need to strive for to effectively manage the future spread of COVID-19.
