Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

Yesterday, Governor Polis announced plans to begin slowly moving out of the statewide Stay-at-Home Order into what he is calling a Safer at Home phase. Additional information is below. What strikes me from the governor’s plans, and is consistent with what I’ve heard from the Larimer County Health Director, is that this next phase is not and cannot simply be back to business as usual. In order to continue to protect the health and safety of our community and to keep infection at a level that our healthcare system can manage, we must continue to take the precautions we have adopted in recent weeks: staying at home as much as possible, wearing face masks when we do leave home, and maintaining physical distance from others.

This is a long game, and we have to remain diligent.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager

Safer at Home
Yesterday Governor Polis announced plans to begin moving out of the statewide Stay-at-Home order, which expires April 26. The next phase, Safer at Home, still encourages all residents to stay home except when absolutely necessary, to continue wearing cloth face masks in public, and to limit gatherings to no more than 10 people. Critical businesses, retail and personal services may open with strict, phased-in protocols. Schools will remain closed and restaurants may continue to offer take-out and delivery only. These efforts are to continue to suppress the spread of the virus and prevent a secondary wave of cases from overwhelming our healthcare systems. The state guidelines also allow individual counties to modify these standards based on local conditions; we are still awaiting details from the Larimer County Department of Health & Environment about any modifications locally.

Recreate Safely
It’s important to get outside for fresh air and exercise during this time, but please be courteous and keep the safety of yourself and others in mind:

  • Avoid high-use areas, or leave if it gets crowded
  • Consider wearing a cloth face covering
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others

Looking for an alternative to busy trails? Fort Collins has many low-stress bikeways with a variety of route options that offer plenty of space for social distancing.
