All critical businesses identified in the revised Public Health Order issued April 6 by Eagle County Public Health and Environment are required to post their social distancing protocols by 5 p.m. April 9.
· These critical businesses, as defined on page 6 of the State Public Health Order, must create and visibly post the Social Distancing Protocol, explaining how the business is achieving all social distancing, sanitizing and cleaning, and other requirements.
· A copy of the Social Distancing Protocol must also be provided to each employee performing work at the facility.
· All employers providing Essential Services or Businesses are required to implement the Social Distancing Protocol and provide evidence of its implementation to any authority enforcing the order upon demand.
· For construction businesses, additional guidance for social distance has been developed by the State of Colorado and must be consulted in addition to the requirements outlined in Section IV of the Eagle County Public Order. Failure to develop and post a Social Distancing Protocol or inability to meet the requirements as outlined above may result in the closure of a business.
The order recognizes that allowing essential businesses in compliance to operate will provide much needed economic support now, and will facilitate a faster recovery in the months ahead.
Public Health officials are reminding the community that Eagle County falls under both the local order and statewide orders. The order that is more restrictive in any category is the one that applies.
