Activity Specific Protective Measures and Guidance Playbooks

The industry sector, recreation, event, and other activities’ Protective Measures and operating protocols contained in the Grand County COVID-19 Suppression Plan and Playbooks shall apply for all applicable businesses and activities at all times until further notice.  These Activity Specific Protective Measures change regularly depending on the COVID-19 health of the County and State.  In particular, due to the dynamic nature of CDPHE Public Health Orders and variability of COVID-19 threats locally, capacity limits for different industries, activities, events, and sectors may change regularly.  

Compliance Verification Form

Businesses, employers, sole proprietors, and organizers of events and activities shall submit a Compliance Verification Form through Grand County Public Health for each activity subject to Activity Specific Protection Measures and display approved acceptance documentation prior to opening and receiving customers, or commencing an event or other activity.
