COVID-19 Update - April 7, 2020

Yesterday afternoon the Governor extended our statewide Stay at Home Order through April 26, 2020. To align our City with that order, we will also extend the closure of City Hall through April 26. As a reminder, the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center, Anderson Building and Active Adult Center are closed through April 30.

Thank you for all you are doing to help contain the spread of the virus by remaining at home as much as possible and reducing your essential trips to the grocery store, pharmacy, and to work if your business remains open. Please also follow the recommendations to wear non-medical cloth masks when leaving the house to further reduce the risk of exposure to the virus, even when enjoying a walk on one of our Wheat Ridge trails or parks. Check out the www.ColoradoMaskProject.com for directions to make your own.

Please remember dogs MUST be on a leash unless in our off leash dog park, and stay 6’ apart if you do choose to be out with others not living with you in your home. If we all continue to do our part, we will continue to see a decrease in the numbers of people contracting the virus and needing to be hospitalized.

We are a strong community and together we will get through this,

Patrick Goff, City Manager
Shellie Salser, Emergency Manager
