MESA COUNTY, Colo. — According to Governor Polis, under the Safer-at-Home phase, local governments can apply for
a variance from the state. To do so, they will need to demonstrate proof of very low case counts
of COVID 19 and/or 14 consecutive days of decline of infection of COVID-19 in the county. They
also must submit an application that includes a written COVID-19 suppression plan approved by
the appropriate local public health authority. All local hospitals and elected officials must sign off
on the plan.
Below is Mesa County’s re-opening plan draft. Mesa County Public Health officials say they are hopeful this plan becomes a reality on Monday, April 27th, but, the county is waiting for Gov. Jared Polis to review and approve the plan.
