No City of Grand Junction employees tested positive for COVID-19 this week. To reduce the spread of the virus, employees monitor symptoms daily and track symptoms at the beginning of every working shift. The City developed a mask policy that went into effect April 13, 2020 following the Governor’s guidelines, which requires City employees to wear masks personal interactions and while working inside. In-person interactions between staff are limited as staff has options for teleworking and work areas have been improved to promote health and safety.
The City will reopen City Hall and other City facilities as the Grand Junction area starts to reopen and in response to the recent move to Yellow: Concern. Full reopening of facilities will unfold over a period of time, allowing for a phased reintroduction of the general public into facilities. Starting the week of March 8, City Hall will reopen to the public Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Parks & Recreation Administrative Office building will reopen to normal business hours 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., Monday through Friday. Starting the week of March 15, indoor Parks & Recreation facilities will reopen. Other Parks & Recreation service changes are as follows:
