CDPHE Advisory for Colorado Ski Areas

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment today issued an advisory for anyone who has visited or is a resident of Summit, Eagle, Pitkin, or Gunnison counties – high-country areas where many of Colorado’s ski resorts are located, including Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Crested Butte. Due to a number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in those areas, people who have been in these counties in the past week are asked to minimize contact with others to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus.

Students who are still living on or near campus, faculty, and staff for whom this pertains should contact CC’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Team Incident Commander Maggie Santos, Colorado College employees should contact their supervisor and should not report to campus. Those who have no symptoms should work from home if possible.

CDPHE recommends that residents and visitors of the affected communities take the following actions:

Stay home or in a comparable setting as much as possible:

Work from home if possible; if you can’t work from home, maintain at least six feet of distance between you and your coworkers or others.
Only go to public spaces for necessities such as groceries and the pharmacy.
Continue healthy, non-group activities like walking, hiking, jogging, cycling and other activities that maintain distance from other people.
Don’t gather in group settings.
Avoid mass gatherings.
Maintain distance (approximately six feet or two meters) from others.
If you need to travel, use a private vehicle instead of taking buses, rideshares, flights, or other transportation that puts you in contact with other people.
Continue to operate critical business functions, such as delivery of goods and operation of businesses, with social distancing and additional safety measures in place.

We all need to work together to minimize exposure to the coronavirus and protect our community and the broader community. Thank you for your efforts to keep us all healthy and safe.
