City of Greeley Increases COVID-19 Precautions as Local Numbers Continue Rising

As COVID-19 numbers keep increasing in Greeley, city officials decided to increase safety measures for City of Greeley facilities in line with the state’s Level Red: Severe Risk measures.

The latest key markers used by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to assess COVID-19 levels show Weld County COVID-19 numbers above the state’s severe threshold.

City officials increased safety measures for City of Greeley facilities to conform to the state’s Level Red guidance to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, protect the community, and reduce the strain on the healthcare system. These changes build on the safety strategies city officials elected to implement last week in line with the state’s Level Orange restrictions.

Just as before, these increased safety measures apply only to city facilities, not private businesses or services in Greeley, which are under the authority of Weld County Public Health and its officials.  

These changes will not have an immediate effect on how community members access City of Greeley services. Access to city staff, services, and facilities will, for now, remain largely by appointment— with City Hall, 1000 10th St., open for walk-in bill payment. However, community members may notice a reduced number of available appointments and reservations at facilities due to decreased capacity limits.

Additionally, officials canceled the upcoming Festival of Trees. Refunds for the Festival of Trees will take place automatically. The festival’s online auction will still take place at For more information about the cancellation of the event call Special Events Coordinator Andrea Haring at 970-336-4219. For more information about refunds, call 970-356-5000.

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.
