-- On Monday, April 27, the Town of Windsor moved from the “Stay at Home” level of restrictions toward the next “Safer at Home” model of physical distancing measures. The town will align with the state’s guidelines for “Safer at Home,” which in short, can be defined for residents as:
- Limiting non-essential travel and avoiding crowds,
- Encouraging the use of face coverings in public,
- Continuing to distance physically,
- Encouraging regular hand washing, and
- Staying at home if you have symptoms.
As of 4 p.m. on April 26, the 80550 zip code in Weld County which includes Windsor residents had 58 positive confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the community; the Larimer County side of Windsor had 2 positive confirmed cases. Town staff will continually monitor conditions and data. Per the Governor’s executive orders, the Town of Windsor retains the opportunity to implement stricter restrictions, particularly if an outbreak occurs.
The move to the “Safer at Home” level also means that various non-critical businesses will begin to open under specific guidelines from Friday, May 1 through Monday, May 4. Guidance comes directly from the state and department of regulatory affairs. The plan to open businesses includes a gradual and calculated approach to doing business in a way that protects residents and owners during this public safety crisis. The state’s guidelines for businesses includes facilitating 6-foot distancing for patrons.
Currently, Town of Windsor facilities remain closed. Programs, events and activities will continue to be cancelled through May and town staff will be required to wear face masks when interacting with the public.
