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.
Starting the week of March 22, City Hall will reopen to the public Monday through Friday. All services provided by City Hall will be available on a regular schedule. City Council meetings will remain virtual until further notice. All other City facilities will reopen to the public as well, however, the Visitor Center will remain closed at this point in time.
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.
