[ARCHIVED] Spring Break in Summit: Stay Home, Save Lives

The original item was published from April 10, 2020 1:49 PM to April 10, 2020 1:51 PM

Next week is spring break for the Summit School District.  For many families, normally this is a time to celebrate the end of winter by traveling to the desert or other places where winter has let go of its grip.   Whether that meant mountain biking in Moab, camping in Fruita, hiking in Palisade, kayaking in Salida, dirt biking in McCoy or rafting on the San Juan, many people would usually leave Summit 

Unfortunately, this is anything but a normal spring and we are all adjusting our routines so that our health, and the health of our friends and neighbors, is protected. During this challenging time it is easy to get down and discouraged about all of the limitations we are following… or we can celebrate what we have right here and brainstorm ways to creatively celebrate #SpringBreakAtHomeSummit.

 Staying at home this Spring Break will not only prevent the spread of COVID-19 but it complies with the Governor’s Public Health Order that limits Coloradans’ from traveling except for necessary trips only.  Polis asks residents to limit activities to your immediate community.  Even if there wasn’t a Stay-At-Home order, many destinations are prohibiting visitors right now.  Camping is closed in many areas such as Moab and Southern Utah. Chaffee County is, “…CLOSED to visitors, tourism, or leisure until further notice. Please do not invite your friends from out of county or out of state. This includes all trails, rivers, lakes and other outdoor recreation areas.” 

If you think about it, Summit County is not a bad place to have to wait out a pandemic. Stay home, safe safe and have some fun with your family and others who live in your home. We’d like to hear (and see) how you and your household are celebrating Spring Break here in Summit County. This is how we #SpringBreakAtHome:
