During Safer at Home, we encourage everyone to remain home as much as possible, except for travel from your home to places you need to go to do necessary tasks, errands and activities, get food or necessary equipment and supplies, transport kids for a shared parenting arrangement or child care, or go to work when required to be in the workplace.

Limit activities to your immediate community, no more than 10 miles from your home if at all possible. Do not travel to mountain areas, including Estes Park or the Western Slope.

Cases of COVID-19 have been reported in all states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19.

If you must travel during Safer at Home:

  • Clean your hands often.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub your hands together until they feel dry.
  • Wear a cloth face covering in public.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with others.
    • Keep 6 feet of physical distance from others.
    • Avoiding close contact is especially important if you are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
