Eagle County Public Health and Environment updated the county’s Public Health Order regarding COVID-19 to allow for an incremental loosening of restrictions beginning on April 27, 2020. Please see these Frequently Asked Questions about Phase 1 guidance.
In summary, changes in the new order include, but are not limited to:
- Allows gatherings of up to 10 people, as long as social distancing requirements are met.
- Allows some outdoor recreational facilities to reopen.
- Restricts short-term lodging operations, except if necessary for an essential service or business, for emergency purposes or for medical care.
- Allows more businesses to open in addition to previously allowed essential businesses, as long as the business can meet the requirements of the order. All businesses must create and visibly post a Social Distancing Protocol, explaining how the business is achieving all social distancing, sanitizing and cleaning, and other requirements.
- Limits travel into or around Eagle County to local residents only. “Local residents” are defined as persons who own, maintain, or live in a home or residence in Eagle County.
The Eagle County Board of Commissioners is urging residents to take a personal pledge to follow the “Five Commitments of Containment:”
- I will maintain 6 feet of social distance
- I will wash my hands often
- I will cover my face in public
- I will stay home when I am sick
- I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms
Eagle County officials and community leaders have created a Transition Trail Map to help guide residents and businesses. Eagle County is moving into the first, or Green Circle, phase.
