Garfield County Public Health Announcement

Safer at Home messages

Yard Sales
Consider having an online yard sale. The Health Department discourages in person yard sales. However, if everyone wears masks, stays six feet apart, and has 10 people or less they may be able to operate under Safer at Home parameters.

Recreate Close to Home (10 miles)
The Colorado Executive Order and Public Health Orders tell Coloradans to recreate within 10 miles of their homes. The further you have to travel, the more potential you have to spread illness. Do not travel to communities or areas with closures in place.
