|CDPHE has unveiled a new draft certification program that would allow businesses to open with an increased capacity if they meet a list of criteria for COVID-19 safety guidelines. The program would allow approved businesses to move down a level on the State’s COVID dial.|
|For example: approved businesses in Level Orange counties would be able to operate at Level Yellow capacities, businesses in Level Yellow counties can operate at Level Blue capacities, and Level Blue counties can operate with an additional 35 people added to their cap.|
CDPHE is still determining if/how the program will apply to counties in Level Red – that decision is expected to be made by December 4th based on public input and data from Mesa County’s pilot program.
Support the 5 Star Variance Protection Program
Please take a moment to review the link below. It is a letter to Gov Polis and our County Commissioners requesting the opportunity to set up a 5-star variance protection program to provide safety and peer accountability in order to keep our businesses and guests healthy this season.
Vail Valley has joined the “Save Our Season” initiative. This is a grass-roots, business-led initiative that is designed to supplement (not replace) the Eagle County COVID resources that are available below.
You can download a variety of assets and promotional tools here: SOS Promo Kit Vail Valley. This includes posters, social media resources, and stickers.
The COVID Dial Poster and the Mask Poster should be posted by all businesses and organizations. Be sure to read through the brand guide. The intention is to direct everyone to the eaglecountycovid.org website for the latest information.
Businesses can pull down all old posters, social distancing protocols, and notices. Replace everything with the COVID Dial and Mask Posters.
