Glenwood Face Coverings now Required in Downtown Outdoor Areas

Beginning next Thursday, face coverings will be required, even outside buildings in downtown Glenwood.

According to a Press Release from the city, the existing Public Health Order was amended to include the requirement for face coverings outside due to a 62% increase in COVID-19 cases since June 1. Starting Thursday, July 30, through at least August 20, when City Council will review the requirement, everyone must have a face covering in downtown Glenwood between Colorado and Blake Avenues and the Colorado River and 10th Street, excluding the 900 block of Blake and along Highway 6 from the former Center for the Arts building to the Devereaux Road intersection.

Face masks will not be required for anyone in a car, children two and under and those with health conditions that would be aggravated by the mask.

The Glenwood Springs Visitor Center will provide masks for visitors without one at their 802 Grand Avenue office.

Face coverings will be required, even outside, starting July 30 in the red areas.
