Eagle County Public Health and Environment is updating the county’s  Public Health Order  regarding COVID-19. The move to the “Blue” Phase, per the county’s  Transition Trail Map , is anticipated to take place on Monday, May 25. 

PLEASE NOTE: The new Public Health Order is dependent on state approval of a variance request. The county submitted the request to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on May 11 but has only received a verbal approval. The state could approve, approve with conditions, or deny the request.
All community members are strongly encouraged to read the entire order.

 As some restrictions are rolled back, Eagle County officials note the importance of residents and business leaders continuing to meet social distancing requirements.
