Holiday Celebrations

As many people in the United States begin to plan for fall and winter holiday celebrations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention developed considerations to help protect individuals, their families, friends, and communities from COVID-19. These holiday considerations supplement Colorado Department of Health and Public Safety's COVID-19 guidelines and practices.

The CDC also offers specific advice for certain holidays:

Travel plans often accompany this holiday season, the state of Colorado offers travel safety recommendations for Colorado residents and visitors - here.


State of Colorado

The State of Colorado has entered the "Safer at Home and in the Vast, Great Outdoors" Phase. The order outlines a new level in Colorado’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes a more sustainable way of living for Coloradans while slowing the spread of the virus and allowing more Coloradans to return to work. Coloradans should continue staying home as much as possible, and the Executive Order directs vulnerable populations, including seniors, to continue staying home, only leaving when absolutely necessary. Read more about Safer at Home from the State of Colorado.

City of Greeley

The City of Greeley is operating with modified public access to select city facilities. Greeley officials believe certain city facilities can offer some in-person services with safety measures in place to protect the health, safety, and future of the community while complying with state public health direction. While some facilities offer select in-person services, other city facilities cannot yet safely allow public access. Those facilities will remain closed to public access until further notice. City officials will continue monitoring the COVID-19 situation to determine the best ways to begin allowing public access at those facilities.

These select city facilities and services are operating with the listed modifications and safety practices. City staff will continue to offer remote access — by internet, phone, and mail where appropriate — to community members who wish to use those options. In all cases, city officials ask visitors to maintain physical distancing, cover their coughs and sneezes, and wear a face cover. Anyone with COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms — a fever, cough, or shortness of breath — should not enter city facilities. Read more.

The Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment is tasked with preserving, promoting, and protecting the health and environment of the residents of Weld County — including Greeley.
