On March 19, 2020, the Town of Estes Park declared a local emergency due to COVID-19. That declaration was continued by resolution of the Town Board of Trustees on March 24, 2020.
On Monday, Oct. 31, 2022 — two-and-a-half years later — Town Administrator Travis Machalek signed the Termination of Declaration of Local Emergency Due to COVID-19.
This week’s declaration noted that safe and effective vaccines are now widely available to resident of Estes Park. It also points out that Larimer County is currently in the “low” category of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Community Level.
The termination of the declaration also noted, “Residents are protected best from severe illness and death from COVID-19 when they stay up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccines, which includes getting all recommended booster when eligible.”
