Town of Mountain View Stay at Home Advisory
Dear Town Residents and Business Owners:
As many of you know, Governor Polis put out a public call on March 22nd, 2020, to help stop the spread of Covid-19. Among other requests, the governor asked all Colorado residents to stay home as much as possible, limit grocery trips to once a week (and not over-buy) and maintain a safe social distance. Governor Polis also mandated that some businesses send 50% of their staff home or maintain a 6-foot employee social distance.
Today, on behalf of the Town, I’m advising residents to heed the governor’s request to stay home. To stop the Covid-19 virus from devastating our families, loved ones and communities, we must all do our part. Beating this serious virus will require a disciplined, committed response from everyone. We need your help.
Accordingly, I’m asking all Town of Mountain View residents and businesses to do the following:
- Stay home. Cabin fever is real, but so are puzzles, Facebook, Instagram and Tik-Tok.
- Please maintain a safe six-foot distance between yourself and others.
- Please limit your number of grocery trips. If we don’t panic buy. there’ll be ample food and toiletries for everyone, including the less mobile, less fortunate and less healthy members of our community.
- Please consider altering your exercise and walking routine, so that sidewalks and open spaces don’t become transmission points for Covid-19. I understand that it’s cold at night, but I’m walking my dogs at odd hours and encourage others to do the same. Early morning is also perfect for a quiet walk.
- I’ve directed the closure of the Town playground and basketball court. Residents are still free to use the park’s common areas, but please maintain a 6 ft. social distance.
- Our restaurants have closed their lobbies to dine-in service. Please continue ordering local delivery or take out , so when this crisis passes, our local restaurants will still be here.
- We’re not shutting down any of the Town’s businesses at this point. In order to stay open, however, business owners must implement 6-foot social distancing for employees and customers as well as Colorado state/CDPHE cleaning rules.
- Our police department is working 24-7 to protect us. They’ll be reaching out soon to reassure our community. During this time, please call the non-emergency number at 303-425-1748 to report minor incidents. In case of an emergency, please call 911.
- Please refrain from hosting or attending social gatherings. We strongly discourage social events of more than 10 people and ask residents to maintain a safe 6-foot social distance.
Let’s all do our part to keep the community safe.
Glenn Levy, Mayor
