Grand County Public Health issued a Standing Public Health Order Implementing the COVID-19 Mitigation and Suppression Plan on Monday, April 27, 2020. It is meant to provide our community with necessary procedures as we move through the various, potentially fluctuating, phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to assist and guide the citizens of Grand County in a safe and efficient transition. This order aligns with Governor Polis’ Safer at Home Executive Order and CDPHE Safer at Home Public Health Order, both of which were implemented yesterday, April 26. The Public Health Order is effective within the entirety of Grand County, including all towns within Grand County. The Public Health Order will become effective immediately, and will remain in effect until further notice.
Any business, public or private gathering, or organized recreation that intends to open or take place while the Governor’s and CDPHE’s COVID-19 “Safer at Home” and other state and local public health orders remain in place must also comply with the Grand County COVID-19 Mitigation and Suppression Plan. Compliance includes:
• Businesses, employers and sole proprietors shall comply with business requirements, best practices and guidance established by GCPH and the CDPHE. Guidance documents can be found on the Grand County website at co.grand.co.us/saferathome.
• Businesses, employers and sole proprietors shall submit a Compliance Verification Form through Grand County Public Health and display approved acceptance documentation prior to opening and receiving customers. The COVID-19 Compliance Verification Form can be found on the Grand County website at co.grand.co.us/saferathome.
• Any business, public or private gathering, or organized recreation that is not in compliance with this and other applicable State and local public health orders shall cease operation or activity.
Grand County has been doing a great job following the Stay-at-Home order, and now we must follow the Safer at Home order. The virus is still present in Colorado and can re-surge at any time. Everyone needs to do their part for themselves, their loved ones, and our community. We have a responsibility to ourselves and to each other to protect our state and our community.
