These changes apply to town facilities, not private businesses, which are under the authority of state licensing and regulatory agencies. In the meantime, we urge residents to do what they can to protect themselves and support local businesses.
In regards to the new restrictions, the Town of Windsor is not able to respond to business non-compliance issues. To report a business that is not in compliance, residents should first contact their local public health agency to report any potential violations of an order. Per the Colorado Attorney General’s Website, residents may also file a report with the Attorney General’s Office at email@example.com if a local public health agency is unresponsive.
Residents are asked to stay home when sick or if they have been exposed to someone who is sick. Residents are also asked to limit non-essential travel, wear a mask in public, avoid crowds and follow state health guidelines.
