Eagle County facilities begin to reopen starting June 1

Many services will be by appointment only, and you'll have to wear a mask inside buildings

Eagle County has submitted its most recent request to the state for easing COVID-19 restrictions.
Nate Peterson | npeterson@vaildaily.com

Eagle County facilities and operations on June 1 will start a phased reopening for in-person services with required safety protocols. The buildings have been closed since March 16 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new operating procedures and limited hours will be in effect until at least June 22, when the county tentatively plans to move into the black phase of its transition trail map.

Members of the public and all employees will be required to wear face coverings and adhere to social distancing, as well as occupancy requirements. Those who cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition or otherwise feel uncomfortable are encouraged to conduct business over the phone, via email, or online at http://www.eaglecounty.us. Visitors should be aware that accessing in-person services may result in longer wait times.  

To comply with public health orders, a reduced number of employees will be working on site at all county facilities. The remainder will continue to work remotely until the public health guidance is revised.

In preparation for the phased reopening, the county has added plexiglass to public-facing work stations, increased cleaning schedules and added more sanitizer stations. The schedule for in-person services beginning June 1 is:
