COVID-19 Business Resources

Summit County businesses can make use of the following resources during COVID-19 response, stabilization and recovery.

Workplace Flow Chart for Employees with COVID-19 Symptoms

  • Summit County has developed a Workplace Guide for staff who are feeling sick or unwell and who are not currently on isolation or quarantine. This flow chart can be used to determine what action should be carried out by employers and their employees.

State Dial Framework and Business Protocols

  • The State Dial Framework outlines our community’s path through stabilization to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The Summit County Business Physical Distancing Protocol Form (pdf) helps businesses identify and implement strategies to protect the health of their employees and members of the public by reducing opportunities for disease transmission. This document does not need to be submitted to Summit County Public Health, but must be posted at your business and distributed to all employees.
    • The Public Health Order Compliance Poster (pdf) must be posted at the entry to all businesses and workplaces. You do not need to use this poster, but you need to provide signage that shows; 1) Asking sick persons to stay out, 2) Cough/sneeze etiquette, 3) 6-feet plus separation, 4) No hand shaking and 5) Face covers. 
  • State of Colorado
  • Summit County has created a fact sheet on the Six Commitments to Containment: Wear a mask; maintain physical distance; wash hands; stay home if sick; get tested if you develop symptoms; and encourage yourself and others to get a flu shot. Download the fact sheet (pdf).

If your business has questions that are not answered in the Roadmap to Recovery or the Physical Distancing Protocol Form, please call 970-668-9730.

What to Do if Your Employees Are Sick

Summit County has guidance for employers that have employees who may have contracted COVID-19 or are confirmed cases.

Financial Resources

There are a number of loans available to small businesses in the community, and those listed below are not an exhaustive list. More funding sources will be listed as they become available.

  • Colorado OEDIT Federal Economic Development Grants 
    • Rural Colorado communities that were previously ineligible can now align their economic development projects with an approved Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) equivalent plan when submitting grant applications to the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).
  • Colorado Winter Outdoor Grants program
    • The Colorado Outdoor Winter Dining Grant Program assists Colorado-based restaurants that are experiencing financial hardship because of the Covid-19 crisis and state and local regulations limiting the number of customers in indoor spaces. Recipients must use the grant funds to purchase items needed to maintain outdoor dining spaces for patrons during colder weather.

Energize Colorado also provides a number of resources to help small businesses including financial resources, business guidance, free professional services, and mental health resources.


Community Planning & Economy Recovery 

As part of the community’s COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, Summit County Government, in conjunction with local industries and public health stakeholders, has convened an advisory committee, including subcommittee support functions. One of these support committees is the Community Planning & Economy Recovery Support Function, which is focused on the community’s economic recovery and is made up of community members representing various local business industries.
