COVID-19 UPDATES FROM THE TOWN OF VAIL

At the Town of Vail, we are keeping a very close eye on COVID-19, as the safety, health, and well-being of our community is our top priority. We have pulled together resources to help you navigate through this difficult time and will be continually updating them as the situation develops.  



    THE BLUE PHASE

THE BLUE PHASE

"Ask Me Anything" Weekly Event: Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Each week, participants are able to ask live questions of a county or partner representative regarding the community’s COVID-19 response via the Once Valley Voice Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/onevalleyvoice/
 

BLUE PHASE BASICS

All community members are strongly encouraged to read the entire order. In summary, changes in the new order include, but are not limited to:

  • Allows gatherings of up to 50 people. Six feet of distance will still be required between non-household members
  • Allows dine-in service at restaurants and bars at a reduced capacity, with social distancing protocols in place.
  • Allows short-term lodging to reopen at a reduced capacity.
  • Allows outdoor recreation businesses, such as guided tours, and areas with high-touch equipment like playgrounds to open if social distancing and sanitation requirements are met
  • Requires all visitors to be free of any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 for 10 days prior to arrival in Eagle County.
  • Continues requirements for people who are sick and for people who have been exposed to someone who is sick.
  • Continues requirement for all businesses to create and visibly post a Social Distancing Protocol, explaining how the business is achieving all social distancing, sanitizing and cleaning, and other requirements. 
 

ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE ON FACE COVERINGS

Guidance on face coverings will remain consistent with the current Green Phase, which strongly recommends the use of face coverings in indoor public spaces and requires their use for employees in certain professions where 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained.

More than a moment: The spread of COVID-19 is most likely to occur when in close contact with others for periods of time approaching 10 minutes or longer, not from momentary circumstances such as walking past others or dropping off goods.

Mask up when close: When 6 feet of distance can’t be maintained for a prolonged period of time, again, 10 minutes or longer, a face covering is required.

Mask up in public: When you are going into a store or a business, a face covering is strongly encouraged. 

Distance is better than masks: Masks are not required when walking in your neighborhood, or on trails, when you can adequately maintain 6 feet of distance from others.

Mask up for others: For those who are not afraid of COVID-19 or don’t want to wear a mask, remember the mask protects others, not yourself.
 

 

TESTING

With community-level transmission of COVID-19 in Eagle County, testing is available for all patients. Please contact your primary care provider and plan to be tested at the Gypsum Screening Center.

If you are feeling sick, please self-report your symptoms at: Eagle County Community COVID-19 Monitoring

Eagle County Paramedic Services recently launched a telemedicine program called Hippo Health designed to connect patients with their health care options beyond a hospital visit: https://www.hippohealth.com/eaglecounty?fbclid=IwAR3FxBzqhR5e3NHlhFctHXCcZlohPm56Q9r53gwZjKl6mdqHiMN3hmCkfOI

 

What to do if you think you have COVID-19

  • Stay home if you develop a fever, cough or shortness of breath. 
  • Wear a face mask (surgical mask if you have one) or cover your cough and sneeze.
  • Wash your hands frequently and don’t share personal items (drinking glass or utensils) with others.
  • Call your healthcare provider. Do not show up at a clinic, urgent care or the emergency department unannounced.
  • Your doctor’s office will assess your illness on the phone, which may include information or other guidance for you and household members.
  • Testing for COVID-19 is not a routine test. Your healthcare provider will work with local and state public health officials to determine who should be tested for COVID-19. All testing is currently limited to those with the highest risk of exposure.
  • Since many of the illnesses are mild, we expect most COVID-19 patients will be isolated in their own home to rest and recover. If possible, sleep in a bedroom and use a bathroom that is not used by other household members.
  • There is no antiviral treatment for COVID-19. Getting rest and drinking plenty of fluids will likely be helpful for recovery. Only the most critically ill will be hospitalized.

ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE ON FACE COVERINGS

Eagle County’s updated public health order has prompted numerous questions about the use of face coverings and what’s required. Use this guidance from Eagle County Public Health Director Health Harmon:

More than a moment: The spread of COVID-19 is most likely to occur when in close contact with others for periods of time approaching 10 minutes or longer, not from momentary circumstances such as walking past others or dropping off goods.

Mask up when close: When 6 feet of distance can’t be maintained for a prolonged period of time, again, 10 minutes or longer, a face covering is required.

Mask up in public: When you are going into a store or a business, a face covering is strongly encouraged. 

Distance is better than masks: Masks are not required when walking in your neighborhood, or on trails, when you can adequately maintain 6 feet of distance from others.

Mask up for others: For those who are not afraid of COVID-19 or don’t want to wear a mask, remember the mask protects others, not yourself.

#VAILSTRONG
BLUE PHASE VIDEO

UPDATE: Eagle County Public Health and Environment has issued an updated public health order to help meet several key goals in the local response to COVID-19. The new order is effective May 25. For COVID-19 updates from Town of Vail, visit Vailgov.com/Covid-19. For other COVID-19 updates, go to ECEmergency.org.

Businesses which meet the compliance criteria of the Eagle County COVID-19 Transition Trail Map and can comply with the Social Distancing Protocol can operate as part of the Blue phase of reopening. For additional guidance, review the Eagle County COVID-19 Business Toolkit and the COVID-19 Reopening Questions and Answers: Phase 2 Guidance.

Vail Community Relief Fund is available to qualifying nonprofit organizations to provide food, shelter and other emergency assistance to individuals who live or work in Vail and are most in need. To support businesses during an unprecedented slow-down in the economy, the Town Council has elected to extend payment due dates for sales tax returns to August 20.


Five Commitmens of Containment 

  • I will maintain 6 feet of social distance
  • I will wash my hands often
  • I will cover my face in public
  • I will stay home when I am sick
  • I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms

 

Help stop the spread of COVID-19 with these tips:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • If you are sick, stay home
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw it away
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Practice social distancing by maintaining a 6 foot distance from others
