City Weekly COVID-19 Update for March 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 during 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 Parks & Recreation Department is working with Mesa County Public Health, who as of March 25 updated the restrictions for Blue: Caution on the COVID dial, to modify parks and recreation services. Outdoor activities will no longer require masks for any participant, coach, staff, or spectator. When social distancing is not possible, masks are still recommended by Mesa County Public Health, but not required. Masks will still be required for all indoor activities.

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. As a reminder City Hall is open to the public Monday through Friday during regular hours. City Council meetings will remain virtual, and the Visitor Center will remain closed until further notice. 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. Information regarding the City’s relief and response efforts, City service updates, and a full list of services available virtually or via the telephone on the City’s website.
