The Meeker Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center recognize that residents and visitors may be concerned about COVID-19 and how it may affect them. Colorado is now in the Safer at Home in the Vast, Great Outdoors Phase, which allows Coloradans and others to recreate in our great outdoors while maintaining a sustainable level of physical distancing. While we are all still safer at home, we are also able to practice greater social distancing in our vast outdoors than in confined indoor spaces. Much of Colorado is now open with restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk for severe illness.
Executive Order D 2020 138 is a mandatory statewide mask order that goes into effect at midnight on July 16, 2020, and will be in effect for 30 days. It may be extended.
