COVID-19 Business Resources

The Steamboat Springs Chamber is working together with our local, state and national partners to advocate and provide information and resources for the business community regarding the impacts of COVID-19. On this page you will find:

 
COVID-19 VACCINE COMMUNICATION

Businesses are trusted sources of information. They can help persuade employees and customers to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them. Read about the best ways for employers to promote COVID-19 vaccines, prepared by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The CDC has also created an Essential Workers COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit full of information for employers and employees.

The CDPHE launched a call center for the public to ask questions specifically about the COVID-19 vaccine: 1-877-CO VAX CO (1-877-268-2926).

Routt County Resources

On May 18, Routt County rescinded the local Public Health Order. Masks are no longer required in most indoor public spaces unless required by an individual business or organization in Routt County.

MITIGATION PLANS

Mitigation plans are no longer required for businesses and events in Routt County, CO. Some State orders for events still apply.

Colorado Resources

The CDPHE announced the expansion of the Binax At-Home rapid testing program to include all employees who interact with the public at their jobs across the state. Public-facing employees include anyone who is required to interact with members of the public as a part of their employment. 

Colorado Recovery Plan

The focus of the Colorado Recovery plan is to help Colorado recover faster and build back stronger after the COVID-19 pandemic. Developed with bipartisan input from lawmakers and community partners, the plan prioritizes one-time investments like broadband infrastructure and affordable housing development that will have the greatest simulative effect and benefit the hardest-hit communities.
