Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Colorado: State & National Resources

  • Temporary Operations Procedures

    As circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus continue to impact people across Colorado, the Colorado Department of Agriculture is doing its part to help mitigate the spread of the virus by asking employees to telework.  
    We are continuing operations as usual with minor modifications to our import permitting process, to keep as many employees working from home as possible. The State Veterinarian's Office is committed to continuing to provide excellent service during this time, and we appreciate your understanding as we reply to inquiries as quickly as possible.
