Masks required at all City facilities; City to begin testing protocols for City employees begins Nov. 1
The City of Arvada is working to comply with recent public health orders intended to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Pursuant to the Jefferson County Public Health Order 21-004, issued Oct. 8, everyone aged two years and older must wear a face covering while indoors in all local government buildings within Jefferson County. This means that visitors and employees must wear a mask when inside all City of Arvada facilities.
Visitors to the City will find updated signage and available mask supplies in public areas to help promote compliance with the mask order. If you are planning a trip to a City facility, please wear a mask. Remember, for your safety and convenience, most City services are available remotely. The City team appreciates the community’s support and patience as we work together to comply with the mandate.
Additionally, on Oct. 13, the Jefferson County Board of Health issued Public Health Order 21-005, requiring all county and municipal government workers to get tested for COVID-19 weekly (every 7 days) in order to report to work in person. County and municipal government workers are exempt from the testing requirement by submitting proof of full vaccination to their employer. The City’s Covid Recovery Team is implementing a confidential system to confirm the vaccination status of those who choose to self-identify and working with local testing providers to ensure ready access to testing for City employees. The Order goes into effect on Nov. 1.
These actions are part of the City’s ongoing response to COVID-19. More information is available at arvada.org/COVID-19.
