[ARCHIVED] City Weekly COVID-19 Update for February 26, 2021

City Hall Exterior

No City of Grand Junction employees tested positive for COVID-19 this week. To reduce the spread of the virus, employees monitor symptoms daily and track symptoms at the beginning of every working shift. The City developed a mask policy that went into effect April 13, 2020 following the Governor’s guidelines, which requires City employees to wear masks personal interactions and while working inside. In-person interactions between staff are limited as staff has options for teleworking and work areas have been improved to promote health and safety.

The recent move to COVID-19 Level Yellow: Concern by Mesa County has no effects on City services at this time. To learn more about the current status of Mesa County, please visit Mesa County Public Health’s website. To slow the spread of disease, Mesa County Public Health continues to ask all Mesa County residents to continue physical distancing, mask-wearing, and limiting social interactions with those outside your immediate household until a vaccine is widely available and able to be distributed to all residents of Mesa County. 

As a reminder, the following services are available to the community:

  • A COVID-19 vaccination clinic remains open at the Grand Junction Convention Center. This is a partnership between the City and Mesa County.
  • Municipal Court has resumed holding regular in-person court sessions on Tuesday and Thursday of each week and Wednesday court sessions on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. 
  • City Hall remains open by appointment only.
  • The lobby of the Police Department building is now open to the public.
  • The lobby of the Fire Department Administration building is now open to the public.

The City of Grand Junction remains committed to providing services to the community and will continue to modify services as appropriate in response to the pandemic. The City will continue to work with Mesa County Public Health to monitor the situation. The health and safety of the public and staff remains a top priority. As a reminder, residents can find information about the City’s relief and response efforts, the status of City facilities, and a full list of services available virtually or via the telephone on the City’s website
