FOURTH AMENDED STANDING PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER

FOURTH AMENDED STANDING PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER RELATING TO NON­RESIDENTS (INCLUDING NON-RESIDENT HOMEOWNERS) AND IMPOSING ISOLATION OR QUARANTINE FOR THOSE WHO TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF SAGUACHE COUNTY.

THIS ORDER SUPERSEDES ANY AND ALL PREVIOUS ORDERS ISSUED BY SAGUACHE COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH. EFFECTIVE APRIL 8th, 2020.

Pursuant to Colo. Rev. Stat.§ 25-1-506 and other applicable authority, this Order sets forth guidance and requirements for, as well as limitations on, group gatherings to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The purpose of these amendments is to amend and clarify the existing Order in response to inquiries received from elected officials and the public, and to expand protection for At Risk Persons (as defined in this Order). For the avoidance of doubt, this Order should be construed to eliminate all non-essential services or non-essential sales of goods, and should be construed in the light most favorable to preventing the community spread of COVID-19.

On March 10, 2020, the Governor of Colorado declared a state of Emergency related to the presence of COVID-19 in the State. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has confirmed that COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the State of Colorado.
