Pitkin County is synonymous with unique and vibrant events and it is important that as we respond to changing COVID-19 circumstances, that we can continue to enjoy events in a COVID safe way. It is important to remember that public gatherings and events are a high-risk activity and therefore need to be carefully planned. We are all learning how to live with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future. This means that while we have been able to return to doing some things as normal there are behaviors and some restrictions that we will need to maintain over the medium to long term.
The purpose of the Event Safety Plan is to help event organizers to identify and manage the risk of COVID-19 for a range of event and activity types in a diverse range of settings. It sets out the process for working with Pitkin County Public Health to deliver a COVID-19 safe event under the current public health requirements and recommendations.
The key objectives of the Event Safety Plan are to:
Outline the public health considerations and requirements to plan and implement
COVID-19 safety at events;
Support event organizers to plan and hold COVID-19 safe events;
Enable the community to engage in COVID-19 safe events as safely as is possible in a
changing COVID-19 risk environment; and
Support the social and economic recovery of the community by supporting Pitkin County's
vibrant and unique events
