Larimer County Manager Linda Hoffmann announced the closure of the majority of County Facilities stating Friday, March 27, 2020, until further notice. Residents can get the most up-to- date information about accessing County services by visiting the County website at Larimer.org or calling in advance of going to the usual location.
Earlier this week, the Board of County Commissioners passed a resolution modifying county business operations, to balance public safety with convenience, in order to protect Larimer County residents and employees during the COVID-19 emergency. The resolution allows the County Manager to make changes in the delivery of county services and close facilities if necessary to protect the residents of Larimer County and employees during the COVID-19 emergency.
“Larimer County strives to be transparent and accessible to all our residents and visitors,” remarked County Manager, Linda Hoffmann. “Our elected officials and staff leaders have been very creative in crafting ways to achieve those ideals, and also model physical separation techniques that are so critical to our community’s health.”
Over the past few weeks, Larimer County departments have greatly expanded innovative and creative ways to deliver services to the public while accomplishing necessary physical distancing to slow the rate of spread of the COVID-19 virus. County Departments and Offices have expanded the use of teleworking and online services available as well as communication by telephone, email and traditional mail with customers.
“I know these closures are not easy for the public we serve or the employees of Larimer County, but it is a necessary step to reduce the transmission of the virus. We need to be an example in our community by taking these precautions seriously,” said Larimer County Director of Health Tom Gonzales.
Larimer County Departments and Offices will have instructions for how to conduct business remotely on their pages at larimer.org.
