Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues - 

Today’s newsletter contains more detailed guidance from Larimer County about this next Safer at Home phase and what is required of certain businesses to begin reopening. For the time being, most City of Fort Collins facilities will remain closed to the public – additional details are below.

As we move into this next phase of recovery, this newsletter will reduce its frequency to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, unless there is urgent news to share.

I hope you can find some time for rest and fresh air this weekend.

Take care,

Darin Atteberry, City Manager


Larimer County Safer at Home Guidance
The Larimer County Department of Health & Environment has issued guidance to supplement the Governor’s Safer at Home policy. The purpose of Safer at Home is to slowly step down Stay-at-Home orders and begin opening up the economy while maintaining 60-65% physical distancing, in order to prevent another spike in COVID-19 cases and overwhelming our medical systems. The County’s instructions align with state guidance and include specific dates and a detailed Checklist for Reopening for businesses.
