COVID-19 Business & Community Resources
Share this page:

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan, China, and reported by the World Health Organization on December 31, 2019. Around the globe, the Coronavirus is receiving heightened attention for infecting tens of thousands of people. The respiratory illness caused by a Coronavirus is thought to spread between people who are in close contact with one another (about six feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land on common surfaces or in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

The Evergreen Chamber understands that the Coronavirus may have an impact for our businesses and the community. Below are resources for advice on how your business and family can plan for and respond to the virus, along with information on the disease.  We will update this page as information is made available.

Jefferson County Safer At Home Level

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) released a new dial framework and that standardizes different levels of "openness" at the county level. It is a tool for counties to use to make life during the pandemic more sustainable, allowing them to balance controlling the virus with the social and economic needs.

Jefferson County has been moved to Level Red as of Friday, November 20th.

In partnership with the State of Colorado, we are thrilled to announce that the Colorado Restaurant Foundation will be accepting applications for the second round of our Winter Outdoor Grant Program beginning on November 30, 2020!

Restaurants have repeatedly told the Colorado Restaurant Association that they require two things to survive: more financial assistance and more capacity. This program aims to chip away at both: Colorado-based restaurants may apply for grants of up to $10,000 to help winterize patio space for continued outdoor dining. Special consideration will be given to restaurants with greater hardship, and geographic distribution will be considered.  Full criteria and the application can be found below.
