CEPP Update for Colorado Business EOC

Business Resources

Yesterday, Governor Polis ordered the closure of all bars, restaurants, theaters, gymnasiums and casinos in Colorado in an effort to protect and preserve the public health. The order, effective at 8:00 a.m. on March 17, 2020, allows restaurants to continue to serve meals for delivery or carry-out, but not for in-person dining. It will stay in place for at least 30 days. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has released guidance for retail food establishments affected by this order.

Business and Infrastructure Partners are invited to attend a business and infrastructure partners call concerning the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), hosted by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and FEMA’s Office of Response and Recovery Logistics Management Directorate. The teleconference will include an overview of the current situation, a discussion on supply chain issues, updates from available regions or sectors, and will conclude with an open forum for questions and information sharing.

These calls will occur twice weekly until further notice.
