Chaffee County Public Health issued a clarification Wednesday of its Tuesday order related to COVID-19 and short-term lodging operations.

According to a press release, some confusion occurred about the first order: Chaffee County Public Health Order issued yesterday related to COVID-19 and short-term lodging operations, the following is some clearer language:

“Under the March 17, 2020 Public Health Order all hotels, motels, short-term rentals (30 days or less), bed and breakfast establishments, lodges and retreats and similar establishments are closed for leisure purposes.  These facilities may only be used for specific emergency travel and lodging purposes, such as a user who is traveling through the County and needs to use a facility for one-night only or for emergency personnel.”  

Please contact Public Health for questions at 719-539-4510.
