Tri-County health is recommending that we move to “virtual meetings” for the time being.
For information regarding the most up to date health orders and how they affect unit activities please take the following steps:
1. Be safe and provide options for every family to participate
2.. Consult with your Charter Organization to determine what rules or guidance they are operating under
3. Review the most current State of Colorado orders, as well as the Colorado guidelines that apply to the dial level for the county where you will be conducting your meeting/activity
4. Review any county variances or restrictions that are different or in addition to the county level requirements
5. Contact the facility where you plan to hold you activity to learn what riles or guidance they are implementing for operations.
You can always see the Denver Area Council COVID Guidelines also.
