Closure of City Buildings Extended Through April 26

Post Date:04/07/2020 1:48 PM

Based on continuing developments related to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in Colorado communities, stay-at-home orders issued by Governor Jared Polis, and guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Boulder County Public Health (BCPH), the City of Longmont is extending the closure of all public buildings through April 26, 2020.

The City of Longmont is also canceling all City-organized programs; community events and community meetings; all community programs; events and meetings organized by non-City entities that are held at City facilities; and all community rentals of City facilities, athletic fields and park shelters for public and private events, through April 26.

City staff will periodically reassess these cancellations and closures and will adjust as needed to help ensure the health and safety of the Longmont community. The City will issue refunds or credits for City-run cancelled programs, events and rentals.

In alignment with Governor Jared Polis, the City is also now recommending residents to wear cloth face coverings when they go out of the house for essential functions like grocery shopping. This, combined with physical distancing, will slow the spread of the virus in our community, protect our vulnerable populations, and reduce the strain on our healthcare system.
