Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Gilpin County Public Health, in collaboration with JCPH and CDPHE, is closely monitoring the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak that was first reported from Wuhan, China.  Learn more about COVID-19, what to look for and how to protect yourself here or call COHELP (303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911).





Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland to Close Developed Recreation Sites

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland (ARP) will begin the orderly closure of certain developed recreation sites and campgrounds as early as March 26, 2020, to protect public health and safety and align with state and local measures already in place to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. Closures will be in place through April 30, 2020, at which point they will be reevaluated. 

The ARP takes the safety of our personnel, contractors, volunteers, and visitors seriously. COVID-19 poses unique and unprecedented risks to our workforce, visitors, and the communities we live in and support. Crowded conditions in recent days in parking areas, trailheads, and at popular forest and grassland destinations are undermining the country’s critical efforts to contain the spread.

At this time, all restrooms, including those at trailheads, on the Forests and Grassland will be closed. Picnic areas and day use areas that are typically open this time of year will also be closing. The warming huts at both Berthoud Pass and Brainard Lake are already closed. The East Shore Trailhead is also closing.

Campgrounds currently open, Dowdy Lake and Ansel Watrous Campgrounds, will close and those scheduled to open before April 30 will be delayed in opening. The Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout is also closed. Reservation holders will be notified via email and/or cell phone text message of any changes affecting their reservation and they will receive a full refund.

This is a fluid situation and a full up-to-date list of closed areas is available online at www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/recreation.

The ARP will continue to coordinate its COVID-19 response in alignment with all federal, state and local guidance. Everyone is urged to take the precautions recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Their most recent guidelines are available at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention.html. Additional information is also available at www.usda.gov/coronavirus.

Given the demonstrated risk of exposure to COVID-19 from large, concentrated gatherings of people, USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Region officials are temporarily discouraging continued recreational use on the national forests and grasslands. Safe and responsible use of forests and grasslands will reduce impacts to local communities who may be at risk from COVID-19.

The ARP has moved to virtual services. Please visit us at www.fs.usda.gov/arp and access our forest maps at www.fs.fed.us/ivm. If you need immediate assistance, please call 970-295-6700.

 

    ALAN GREEN MEMORIAL FOUNDATION GRANT APPLICATION

 AGMF is NOT accepting Grant Applications that are usually due by December 31st and funding given out in January. With the holidays and end of year obligations it can be difficult for organizations to apply by the deadline.  Therefore the AGMF Board of Directors has rescheduled the Grant funding to be given out the month of October each year.  The deadline for Grant applications will be September 30th.  There will be a reminder of this change  during the  year.  Good idea to put the date on your 2020 calendar!

HWY 72 Project
CDOT is planning reconstruction of Hwy. 72 between Plainview Road (MM12.3) and Pinecliffe  The project is expected to run 195 days with completion sometime in 2020.  Construction will occur Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.


TRAVEL IMPACTS

Construction will impact all motorized and non-motorized traffic. Travel restrictions are necessary through the entire work zone between Plainview Road, which is approximately 1.7 miles west of CO 93 in Jefferson County, and Pinecliffe in Boulder and Gilpin counties. At several locations, CO 72 will be reduced to a single-lane, with alternating traffic controlled by both automated signals and daily flagging operations. Bicyclists will not be allowed to travel through the work zone due to a limited road width under the single lane configuration and to prevent travel against the flow of traffic controlled by the temporary traffic signals. Uneven or gravel road surfaces may exist.

All traffic restriction schedules, updates, and lane closures will be posted on COTrip.org. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this permanent repair project is critical to upgrading this section of the CO 72 corridor that is susceptible to floods. Additional project information is available at www.codot.gov/projects/floodrelatedprojects/co-72-coal-creek-canyon-1.
