Windsor is Following "Safer at Home" Phase of Distancing
The Town of Windsor is following the state’s recommended “Safer at Home” level of restriction and model of physical distancing measures. For the latest and most accurate information, visit https://covid19.colorado.gov/ .
The Safer at Home model encourages:
- Vulnerable populations and seniors advised to stay home except when necessary
- Reduced physical interactions by limiting capacity in public spaces, restaurants, coffee shops, bars and breweries.
The Town of Windsor will continue to abide by all state recommendations and requirements. With the Safer at Home order, communities are able to slightly modify regulations to meet their needs. For example, local governments are able to implement additional safety measures as needed for their community. Some areas reporting low case counts with a 14 consecutive day decline in cases may complete a written application to request permission to relax state guidelines. At this time, this is not an option the town is looking to pursue. The Town of Windsor has the authority to return to increased social distancing measures if necessary.
The town is legally required to comply with government regulation and processes. To disregard the state’s Safer at Home order constitutes breaking the law and jeopardizes the town’s eligibility for emergency funding.
