Governor Announces Statewide Mask Order - July 16, 2020

Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) issued an Emergency Public Health Order effective July 14 at 5 p.m. that requires Jefferson County residents and visitors to wear a mask or cloth face covering when in public settings when unable to maintain 6 foot social distancing. The Order does not require face coverings when in private residences, or in a personal vehicle when traveling alone or with members of your household. A hearing will be held during the scheduled Jefferson County Board of Health meeting on July 21 with a discussion on whether to amend or extend the Order. A copy of the JCPH signage for businesses is available here for printing and posting for customers. For more information

Currently in-person visits to Wheat Ridge City Hall are by appointment only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and from 1-4 p.m. Please contact the appropriate staff person if you require an in-person assistance. Quick Reference Guide.  Please visit for more information on recreation programs.

While we all remain Safer at Home per order of JCPH, City staff are committed to providing outstanding customer service to our community. Our focus has shifted however during over the past few months to a more robust e-business model and we are reviewing creative ways to safely conduct any essential business that may require an in-person appointment. Wheat Ridge City staff continue to assist Wheat Ridge businesses and residents in the following ways: online form submission, telephone, email, and with information provided on our City website, Whats Up Wheat Ridge, Wheat Ridge Speaks, and on social media. Let us know how we can help.
