Businesses through Larimer County have a major stake in the success of a Colorado health order requiring all Colorado residents 11 and older to wear masks in indoor public spaces.  

Larimer County businesses are urged to help stem the sudden spike in local pandemic case numbers.  Larimer County could lose the benefits of a variance granted by the state this spring that allows them much greater flexibility and creates more opportunities for them to reach customers than the Safer-at-Home order allows.

“If we continue to see cases rise, and early-warning indicators continue to appear, we could see our variance rescinded,” Larimer County Health Department spokeswoman Katie O’Donnell said on Thursday. “This would mean a roll back to the ‘Safer-At-Home’ phase from a state level, and a minimizing of the allowed business operations we were awarded with our variance.”

The Unemployment Insurance (UI) system is administered by the State of Colorado not Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development and is primarily an online system. The State of Colorado introduced a new phone system for unemployment callers.  The phone system offers prerecorded information on the unemployment insurance filing process and eligibility.  Callers who still have questions have the option of scheduling a callback time to speak to an Unemployment Claims agent.  To reach the State of Colorado Unemployment customer service call 1.800.388.5515.

New work-search requirements are in place. You are now required to complete work-search activities every week to be paid benefits unless you are job attached.  Have questions on what qualifies as a work-search activity?  Visit the Information on Unemployment Insurance work search requirements page.
