Safer at Home

Stay-at-Home restrictions are being slowly stepped down in CO and Larimer County starting April 27. To successfully prevent another spike in COVID-19 cases, we must use a combination of strategies, including physical distancing, cloth face coverings, and a slow and thoughtful re-opening of our community.
