Service Updates, July 3, 2020

On July 2, Eagle County Public Health updated the public health order, and moved to the "Black Diamond" phase on July 3. There are some very important changes that impact our services, particularity with regard to face coverings. See the Transition Trail Map here

Individuals are required to wear Face Coverings that cover the nose and mouth, subject to the following: 
a. Indoor public spaces: Individuals must wear Face Coverings when entering and inside any place of business or public indoor environment, such as a retail store, grocery store, post office, library, government buildings, theaters, and the like. \
b. Outdoor public spaces: Face Coverings are not required when in public outdoor spaces unless six feet of physical distance from non-household members cannot be maintained over a period of 15 minutes or longer. If a client refuses to comply with the expectations of this public health order and refuses to vacate the premises, businesses may call law enforcement to enforce trespassing and/or public health violations. 
c. Wearing a Face Covering does not replace the requirement to maintain the minimum physical distance from non-household members. 
d. Exceptions - Face Coverings are not required: 
i. For persons under two years of age. 
ii. For child care centers or summer camps where ECPHE Industry Specific Guidance provides otherwise.  
iii. When seated for dining or consumption within a restaurant or bar. 
iv. Where wearing a Face Covering would inhibit an individual’s health due to an existing health condition. 
v. When receiving personal or health services that require access to the mouth or nose, including but not limited to dentistry or dermatology.  
vi. When exercising in a gym or fitness center when wearing a Face Covering is not physically possible. 
vii. Within an indoor workplace setting when the general public is not = present AND persons can maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from other people at all times.”

Five Commitments

Please be vigilant in protecting yourself, your family and our community by abiding to these five commitments:

1.      I will maintain 6 feet of social distance.
2.      I will wash my hands often.
3.      I will cover my face in public.
4.      I will stay home when I am sick.
5.      I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms.

For those just arriving, thank you for limiting your interactions with non-household members for the first 14 days of your stay and embracing the Five Commitments of Containment.
