Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

Details continue to come out about what the transition to this next Safer at Home phase will look like, and I anticipate more is yet to come from both the state and county. I realize there are still many unanswered questions. What we do know is this is not a grand reopening, and stay-at-home restrictions will be slowly stepped down. Many of the practices and measures enacted during the stay-at-home order will remain – though people are no longer ordered to stay at home, they are still strongly encouraged to do so.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager

Safer at Home Phase
Governor Polis’s presentation yesterday included more detail about the Safer at Home phase. In this phase some businesses will be able to re-open and a portion of employees may return to work with significant distancing and safety requirements; however, work that can continue remotely with limited onsite staff is highly recommended. Many of the practices and measures enacted during the stay-at-home order will remain. The transition will be gradual, with little change overall for most Coloradans in this first phase. The general public is encouraged to do the following:

  • Follow Safer at Home guidelines
  • Wear face coverings and stay 6 ft. apart in public
  • Restrict gatherings over 10 people
  • Refrain from going to work when sick
  • Limit non-essential travel

City Facilities Remain Closed
As a reminder, currently all City facilities remain closed to the public. Any reopening plans will be made slowly and thoughtfully, in close coordination with the state and county recommendations. Reopenings will be announced in this newsletter, and on the City’s website and social media channels. To contact a City department or program while facilities are closed, please visit fcgov.com/cityservices or call 970-221-6500.

Business Resources

Paycheck Protection Program
Congress is expected to sign a new stimulus bill that would provide $310 billion in additional funding to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). PPP offers small business 100% federally guaranteed loans to maintain payroll during COVID. These loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain payrolls during the crisis or restore payrolls afterward. Additionally, $60 billion will be dedicated for the Small Business Administration disaster assistance loans and grants. Businesses can prepare while awaiting Congressional approval. Visit NoCoRecovers.com for suggestions how.

Community Support

Join the Adopt A Neighbor Volunteer Program
The Adopt A Neighbor program pairs volunteers with neighbors in need. Volunteers 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 outdoor pet care/dog walking. Specific needs and schedules will vary and need to be coordinated by the volunteer and neighbor they are paired with for the program. Get involved at fcgov.com/volunteer and help us show that Fort Collins is a truly exceptional community that rises up to help one another!
