City Officials Announce Public Closures in Response to COVID-19
City of Greeley officials decided to close non-emergency city facilities in response to the spread of COVID-19 and two presumptive positives cases in Weld County.
State officials are encouraging the cancellation of public gatherings in Colorado with more than 250 people. City officials strongly encourage any gatherings of fewer than 250 people to practice social distancing and CDC-recommended precautions.
At this time, Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment has identified two individuals who tested presumptive positive for COVID-19 via the testing process overseen by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). These individuals are considered “presumptive positive” until the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirm the cases.
This means effective immediately, the city is closing public access to all non-emergency facilities at the close of business today, March 13. The closures will remain in effect through April 30 at which time the situation will be re-evaluated. All essential city operations and staff — including, police, fire department, water, sewer, and key infrastructure will continue functioning. Emergency services will continue.
