[ARCHIVED] March 25: Message from Mayor Gray regarding Tri-County Health Department stay-at-home orders

Washing hands with soap under faucet; Town of Castle Rock COVID-19 update

Most have heard of the “Stay-at-Home” order now officially issued by Tri-County Health Department, which takes effect at 8 a.m. Thursday, March 26, and runs through April 17. The Town was already doing the best it could to keep employees working from home. Still, there are additional Town services now impacted by the order: Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course will be closed; and, while parks, open spaces and trails (except soft-surface, which are closed because they’re muddy) remain open, amenities including playgrounds, picnic areas, and basketball and tennis courts are now closed. So are additional businesses within Town deemed “nonessential.” Tri-County provides many more details at https://www.tchd.org/818/Coronavirus-COVID-19.

You can still show your #CRLocalLove by getting items to-go from local businesses that remain open, and delivery of online orders will continue. Most of these purchases provide sales tax that will help keep vital Town services running during this economic downturn, and I encourage you to continue supporting the business community to the extent you can.

Be assured the Town’s critical services including public safety, water, roadwork and construction permitting continue to function as close to typical as possible, while applying advised social distancing principles when at all feasible.

We are here for you, and encourage you to work with us online; visit CRgov.com/OnlineServices. We also urge you to take care of yourself, whether by getting outside to enjoy the great weather or by reaching out for assistance if you are finding yourself in need. Call 303-688-4825, or visit https://www.douglas.co.us/governm…/departments/humanservices to get connected to help.

Be well, and #StayHome to help your community. Even if we’re physically apart, we’re in this together.

Mayor Jason Gray
