Beginning Friday, June 5, many Colorado Parks and Wildlife offices around the state will reopen to the public, while closely following the best practices outlined in the Safer at Home public health order.
Colorado’s Public Health Order 20-28 (“Safer at Home”) requires employers to take specified measures in the workplace to minimize the community spread of COVID-19. To protect the health and safety of CPW employees and the customers they serve, all office locations and worksites will comply with the Public Health Order requirements to ensure a safe reopening of public spaces and facilities.
Please note: Offices will limit public access to the front counter areas and only offer CPW products for sale (licenses, passes, registrations, etc.).
CPW staff will be monitoring themselves for any sign of illness and we ask the public to do the same. Vulnerable individuals should contact their local CPW office or visitor center to schedule a visit.
Visitors should be aware that standard office hours may have changed for the location you’re planning to visit, so you should call ahead of arriving or see individual park pages to ensure your preferred location is open. Your experience inside the building will also be different, as staff have implemented extra precautions including: • Limiting the number of people allowed inside the building at any time • Hand sanitizer stations placed directly inside offices and visitor centers for public use upon entering • Floor signs/markings to direct customers where to stand while waiting in order to maintain a safe social distance of at least six feet • Barriers, i.e., Plexiglas/Acrylic “sneeze shields/ guards” installed so as to create an effective barrier between customers and staff • Limited availability of restrooms or other indoor spaces Please visit CPW’s website for related and additional updates on how CPW is adapting to the challenges presented by COVID-19.
