Interim City Manager Amber Blake, pursuant to the emergency declaration related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis, is adopting and supporting the recent stay-at-home advisory issued by San Juan Basin Public Health. This advisory will help mitigate the presence of COVID-19 in Durango as an imminent threat to public health of Durango residents and visitors.
“The City of Durango is hopeful that the Governor of Colorado will issue a stay-at-home order so the entire state will have the same requirements,” said Blake. “This is critical for the compliance of how we need to operate to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and ensure there is a uniform understanding of what people should be doing and should not be doing.”
“This decision was not made lightly, but we need to do everything we can to keep our community safe during this public health emergency,” said Blake.
