Most Boulder County and City of Boulder buildings and facilities to remain closed to the public until June 1

With limited exceptions buildings and facilities will remain closed to the public until June 1 in response to Colorado Gov. Jared Polis’ ‘Safer-at-Home’ order.

Boulder County will keep its buildings closed to the public through May 31, with limited exceptions. Most City of Boulder buildings and facilities will remain closed until at least June 1.

Gov. Jared Polis has announced revised restrictions to his Stay-at-Home order issued March 26 (and set to expire April 26), calling the next phase ‘Safer-at-Home.’ The Governor’s Office has released a list of guidelines for employers to follow to allow maximum telecommuting practices and for offices to open at no more than 50 percent capacity with specific safety precautions in place.


Exceptions to this closure include limited public access to the Boulder County Justice Center for certain public safety hearings to be scheduled, as well as limited access to the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters and the Treasurer’s Office in Boulder at the discretion of those elected officials. Other exceptions include county employees who are performing required in-the-field activities such as road and building construction, maintenance, trails and open space management, inspections, and adult and child protection. In addition, the District Attorney’s Office and the Sheriff’s Office remain open and committed to serving and protecting the community with essential law enforcement and public safety actions.

We want to remind and encourage all individuals in an unsafe situation to leave their homes during the stay-at-home order and safer-at-home guidance in order to get help or to call for assistance.
