Event Cancelations due to Coronavirus Precautions

14 Mar 2020 12:08 - 14 Mar 2020 12:11 #11 by AlpineRescueTeam
We are sad to say that we’re cancelling ALL future Skills for the Hills education programs indefinitely. In addition, our Wednesday night trainings that are often open to the public have also been cancelled. Alpine has canceled all our non-essential activities, including our trainings and our reaccreditation exams. But, Alpine Rescue Team is STILL available for anyone needing rescue services in the backcountry at no charge. If you’re feeling great, please enjoy the outdoors safely, but if you’re not, please enjoy the indoors safely and consider all those around you wherever you are. Always carry the Ten Essentials and hike with a (healthy) partner. More safety information is at www.alpinerescueteam.org/safety-education/ Be safe out there!

Important Message from Park County School District RE-2 - Fairplay

A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

After conferring with Park County Health Department, I have decided we will indeed need to close the school next week (March 16-19,2020). Of course, we have spring break the following week so that will allow two weeks to see, what our next steps should be. I do not anticipate this situation will be over by then so please be prepared for anything.

Parents, you will receive an email sometime on Sunday, tomorrow, with more detailed information on how the school will address learning for the next week. Our goal, of course, is for instruction to continue so valuable learning time is not lost. That email will also lay out plans for how student meals can continue during the closure.

In the meantime, the district is utilizing outside professionals to help us clean and disinfect the entire facility so we are prepared for the return of students.

Thank you for your patience and your continued flexibility.

Cindy Bear, Superintendent

Dear Stagedoor Patrons,
It is safe to say that our everyday lives have become disrupted in recent days with the development of the COVID-19 virus. Schools have transitioned to online learning, many are avoiding the office and working from home, and all of us are taking "social distancing" to heart.

To that end, StageDoor Theatre has made the following changes:

All current rehearsals are canceled through March 28. This includes rehearsals for Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland and She Kills Monsters.

Production Schedule Change
We are hopeful that things may return to some semblance of normal in April. If that is the case, our plan is to shift to the following production schedule:
Alice in Wonderland - May 1-9 (no change)
She Kills Monsters - June 4-7 (change from two weekends to one weekend)
Sweeney Todd - June 19 - 27 (moved from April)
Mamma Mia! - July 10- August 2 (no change)

All ticket sales have been put on hold until March 28. At that time, we will assess the best path forward.

There are a great many unknowns as to how this current situation will play out in our community. Undoubtedly, things will look very different going forward as this situation evolves. We will continue to provide updates to our patrons and families as they become available. The safety and wellbeing of our students, production teams, performers, crew, and patrons remain our highest priority.
We appreciate your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

With Thanks-
StageDoor Theatre Board of Directors

Families,

Please take the time to fill out a brief form so we can better understand the individual needs of our families during this time. Click or copy and paste this link to access the survey: forms.gle/jJtzWqSxnyHHdHjD9

Other important pieces of information:

As of now, the Boys and Girls Club will be open next week from 8:00-5:00. You can consider using them for childcare should you need it.

We are working on a plan, based on the results of the survey, to provide families with meals for students. We are hoping to be able to deliver meals as needed by utilizing our transportation staff. You will also be able to come to the school and pick up meals by using the pick-up lane in front of the elementary.

The district is considering this time away from the classroom as instructional time. Teachers will be communicating with you regarding assignments and classwork and how you can access these. Please respond to teachers so we will know your child is engaged in learning during this time. Staff will be working and available during regular school hours should you have questions or concerns.

Cindy Bear

Mayor Hancock announces important updates to Denver’s response to COVID-19
by: Jenna Carroll, KDVR | Mar 16, 2020, 11:06 AM MDT/ Updated: Mar 16, 2020, 11:56 AM MDT

DENVER (KDVR) — The City and County of Denver announced on Sunday that they will be aligning with the revised CDC guidelines recommending that gatherings of 50 people or more be postponed or canceled for the next eight weeks due to the COVID-19 virus.

The public order was released Tuesday during a press conference.

Press Release
Public Health Order Announced: City & County of Denver Closes Venues

Mar 13, 2020

Denver, CO – With the announcement by Mayor Michael B. Hancock of a pending Public Health Order today, the City & County of Denver has canceled public events at certain venues owned and operated by the city beginning today, until April 12. These venues include Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre and Visitor Center, the Denver Performing Arts Complex, the Denver Coliseum, McNichols Civic Center Building, and the Colorado Convention Center. Libraries and recreation centers will also be closed beginning on Monday, March 16, 2020, until further notice.

The Public Health Order follows Denver’s announcement of an emergency declaration yesterday. The declaration order signed by the Mayor on March 12 was made to engage additional emergency resources available to assist in Denver’s emergency response and gives the city greater flexibility to procure needed resources.

Today's escalation marks the second such public health order in Denver’s history, with the first made in response to the influenza pandemic in October 1918. That order was in effect for 53 days.

The Denver Police Department (DPD) is implementing a modified report-taking process to help prevent the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. DPD will begin taking some reports and statements via phone call instead of dispatching officers to gather information in-person. This change will not impact the dispatching of officers to high-priority, emergency incidents.

For example, if a resident calls Denver Police to report a property crime that previously occurred, a suspect is no longer present and there is no imminent threat to personal safety, an officer can call the person reporting the crime to obtain the necessary information to create a police report. The officer will then determine if additional investigative and/or evidence collection resources are required.

To be clear, the Denver Police Department still encourages residents to call 9-1-1 to report an emergency or 720-913-2000 to report a non-emergency situation. Denver’s Emergency Communications center personnel and DPD personnel will then work together to identify calls where an officers’ presence is not required to complete a report.

“It’s out of an abundance of caution that we are implementing this process, which will allow the Department to continue providing high-quality service and thorough investigations while helping to minimize the potential spread of the virus,” said Denver Chief of Police Paul Pazen.

The Department also encourages residents to utilize its online crime reporting tool when possible to help further reduce person-to-person interactions. This tool is an option for reporting crimes such as theft, vandalism, lost property, identity theft and more, and can be accessed by visiting www.denvergov.org/police and clicking the “Report Crime Now” button on the right side of the homepage.

DPD is implementing this report-taking process immediately on a small scale and will utilize the process for as long as necessary.

Denver Fire Department and other first responders will be staging at the scene of an incident before entering a facility, if symptoms of COVID-19 are believed to be present based on enhanced 9-1-1 screening questions.

Denver District Court is currently engaging in COVID-19 prevention and risk mitigation planning with our state and local partners, and is committed to making every effort to protect our jurors and the public which we serve while also maintaining business operations to the fullest extent possible. Denver District Court is proactively rescheduling matters that allow for flexibility in appearance, while also seeking alternatives to include options such as telephone appearances whenever possible.

The Denver Jury Office is implementing modifications to limit the number of individuals in jury assembly rooms, and remain in compliance with the public health orders which have been recently issued by Mayor Michael Hancock. Additional information and updates to court operations can be accessed via the Colorado Judicial Branch website.

Transactions with city government that can be conducted online include electronic payments, court orders and parking tickets. Instructions are posted at www.denvergov.org .

A continuous update on Denver’s response to COVID-19, including protection and prevention, is available on the city website.

From Dynamic Fitness 24/7 Conifer

It’s no secret that the Coronavirus is affecting all aspects of life as we know it.
We have been following local and federal sources regarding precautionary measures being implemented to keep our country safe.

We are also concerned with the health and safety of those who enter our gym. We have people of all ages, but we have a large percentage of our members and clients who are older and more at risk.

As you may be aware, folks are divided on the seriousness of the Coronavirus. Some show no concern at all, while others are hoarding and self-quarantining. Compiling information from several sources, it seems the Coronavirus is not worse than the common cold or flu.....if you’re healthy. Those who are older and have respiratory conditions are at much greater risk for lung fibrosis, pneumonia and death. There are many in our gym community who have respiratory conditions, including Sam.

Because of this, we feel it is our responsibility to do our part to protect those who are at most risk. The elusive nature of COVID-19 provides a large window of uncertainty in regards to transmission.

After careful consideration, we’ve decided it’s in the best interest of all to be proactive. Effective immediately, Dynamic will be closed for two weeks in conjunction with local school closures. We will follow the guidelines of local and federal officials as the situation develops.
This decision did not come easily. We are sorry for the inconvenience and interruption to your programs. We will provide daily workouts and videos to help you stay on track during the closure.

Give us a call if you have questions or need help staying on track with your routine. We will help you as much as we can remotely.

It is our hope, that if everyone works together to slow the spread of COVID-19 we will minimize the effect this disease will have on our friends, our community and our country.
We must think not only of ourselves now, but of the bigger picture which involves concern and care for all during this crucial time.

Thank you very much for your understanding.
Sincerely,
Sam and Diane

We were asked to share this from Colorado Natural Gas. IREA is also suspending most disconnections at this time.

Colorado Natural Gas Suspends Disconnections in Response to COVID-19

Centennial, CO – Colorado Natural gas (CNG) today announced a suspension of service disconnections to any customers who are having a hard time paying their bill. This policy will remain in effect until April 30, 2020. At that time the company will evaluate whether to extend the suspension.

“Right now, our top priority is protecting the health and wellbeing of our customers and the communities we serve, which is why we are suspending service disconnections to any customers who are struggling to pay their heating bill,” said Fred Kirkwood, senior vice president of customer development for Colorado Natural Gas.

We pride ourselves on being a reliable energy partner for our customers, and this is one small step we can take to live up to that mission.”

Customers struggling to pay their bills should visit coloradonaturalgas.com/low-income-assistance for a list of agencies that can provide financial assistance to help them with their heating bill.

  • Asking customers if they have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 or been in contact with someone who was recently diagnosed so the company can take necessary precautions when visiting their home.
  • Instituting a mandatory work from home policy for all team members who are able.
  • Providing enhanced health and safety guidelines to all members of the AOG team who interact with customers.
  • Implementing company travel restrictions.
