Step 1:Summit County Animal Control suggests that you contact the owner regarding the barking dog in an effort to resolve the problem at a neighborhood level first. This can be done in person or by sending a signed letter describing the specific problem. It is recognized that contacting your neighbor first is not always possible or desirable for you. If you are uncomfortable making the initial contact an Animal Control Officer (ACO) can intervene.
Step 2: If the problem persists after the initial contact or if you aren’t comfortable contacting the owner, a warning can be issued. To issue a warning, the following information is needed from you. A. Complete Address of the dog owner. If this is unknown, an ACO can try to assist you in gaining this information.B. Description of dog(s) and circumstances. i.e. color, breed, size, etc. Can you see the dog(s)? C. Specific date and time frames and/or intervals the dog(s) were barking. Example: “The dog barked from 8:00am to 10:00am” Note: “The dog barks all the time” is too vague of a statement and does not meet the elements of describing the nuisance.D. A signed complaint. An ACO will produce a typed complaint including the above information and provide it to you to sign.Step 3:If the barking complaint is not resolved within 72 hours of the issuance of the first warning, then you will be instructed to sign a second complaint. A second warning will then be issued. Step 4: If the problem persists after another 72 hours, then you will be encouraged to sign another complaint for a citation to be issued. By doing so, you must be willing to testify in court, should that become necessary.
In order to adopt a pet, you must:
Adoption fees include the cost of the microchip and initial chip registration, spay or neuter surgery, license fee for the first year, current rabies and distemper vaccination, and a veterinary health exam. These fees also partially cover the cost of the animal’s care and feeding during the animal’s stay at the shelter.
Please understand that the Summit County Animal Shelter reserves the right to deny any application for adoption.
Note: We are not a same-day adoption shelter.
There are fees involved to redeem an impounded pet. You may contact the shelter first at (970)668-3230 to find out the amount owed or you may just come to the shelter during our normal business hours.
You will be asked to show proof of rabies vaccination on a dog, cat, or ferret. If your animal is not vaccinated or proof is not available, you will be issued a citation for Failure to Vaccinate a pet animal. You will be given 20 days to provide the shelter with proof of rabies vaccination and have the citation voided, or you may pay the citation fine or appear in court. If you live in unincorporated Summit County, Dillon, or Silverthorne, you will be required to purchase a dog license if you do not already have a current one. Our fees are as follows:

All property sales used in the 2019-2020 Valuation are identified in the spreadsheets found on Assessor’s website. Go to: http://co-summitcounty2.civicplus.com/387/Reappraisal-Sales-Lists
Colorado County Assessors are required to provide property owners in their respective counties a notice of valuation for each taxable property annually. In even numbered years NOVs are generally sent out in January together with the tax bill for the property. In odd numbered years NOVs are sent out on May 1st. In even numbered years NOVs for properties that experienced significant change, e.g. new construction, remodels and destroyed properties, are sent out on May 1st.
No, tax bills are sent out by the County Treasurer’s Office in January of each year. An NOV is a notice of the value amount of a property determined by the Assessor’s Office, which value amount (the “Taxable Actual Value”) is a factor used to calculate property taxes payable.
Your annual property taxes are determined by the following formula: Taxable Actual Value X Assessment Rate X Mill Levy = Tax amount. The Assessor is only responsible for the valuation of your property, the Taxable Actual Value. If you disagree with the value of your property and your current tax bill, you will need to file a Petition for Abatement. You can find more information on our Abatements page. If you disagree with the value of your property and your future tax bill, you may file an appeal. See the question “How do I appeal my value?” in the Filing an Appeal section for more information.
Your annual property taxes are determined by the following formula: Taxable Actual Value X Assessment Rate X Mill Levy = Tax amount. The Assessment Rate for all residential property in Colorado is currently 7.15% and 29% for all other taxable property types. The Mill Levy, which is a rate, is a total of the mill levies set by taxing entities with jurisdiction over the property. Based on the average levy in Summit County, for residential property you pay $456 in property taxes for every $100,000 in property value. All other property pays $1,848 in property taxes for every $100,000 in property value.
The terms “account” and “schedule” refer to the same number. Each Summit County property is assigned an individual identification number. This number is located just below the “Notice of Valuation” header and is highlighted with red lettering. This same number is on your 2019 Property Tax Notice Due 2020, located on the right side of the form below the Summit County Logo.
Contact the Assessor’s Office by phone (970) 453-3480 or by email at Assessor@summitcountyco.gov and request a copy of the Sales Comparison Grid for your property. Please include your account/schedule number, phone number and email address with your request. We will email or mail a .pdf of your Sales Comparison Grid to you for your review.
Your value changed from 2018 to 2019 due to the State mandated reappraisal of all property to a more current level of market value. All property in Colorado is reappraised every 2 years on the odd numbered year to reflect a market value based on the appraisal date of June 30th of the preceding year. For 2019, all property was revalued to a June 30, 2018 date of appraisal, up from the prior 2017-2018 date of appraisal of June 30, 2016. Your property was valued using sales of similar properties that sold in the 24 months prior to June 30, 2018.
No, but your tax bill does. Your 2019 Property Tax Notice Due 2020 form will have the following message in the Messages section in the upper right section of the form: “The value and tax stated on this notice reflect reduced amounts due to the application of the Senior or Veteran Property Tax Exemption Program”. More information about the Senior and Veteran’s property tax exemption programs may be found here: http://www.summitcountyco.gov/120/Exemption-Programs
Time trending refers to an adjustment made based on changes in market conditions over time, or between the time of the sale and the appraisal date. This adjustment is applied to all sales for the purpose of calculating their values effective on the last day of the then current data collection period, which for 2020 was June 30, 2018. See further explanation at: http://www.summitcountyco.gov/DocumentCenter/View/217/Time-Adjusted-Sale-Prices?bidId=
In most cases, residential properties with no comparable sales listed are new construction that is less than 70%. Other cases of properties that do not include comparable sales include: all non-residential properties (commercial, agricultural, etc.), properties with multiple improvements, and mixed-use properties.
Our hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We have a staff meeting Wednesday mornings until about 10:30am.
Residential sheds limited to 120 sq. ft. and one story do not require a permit . However, make sure to check with the Planning Department for location allowed on your lot and with your HOA if applicable. An electrical permit is required if you are running power to your shed.

The goal of this phase is to maintain strict physical distancing. Critical businesses will remain open with strict precautions (physical distancing, face coverings should be worn in indoor public places and any other location where maintaining 6 feet of separation is not possible, more frequent cleanings, etc.). And non-critical businesses will begin to open with strict precautions and guidance.
For more information and guidance about specific activities, businesses, and industries, see our Roadmap to Recovery.
Follow the Five Commitments for Containment. Summit County asks all residents and visitors to commit to these five actions to contain the spread of COVID-19.
According to public health officials, a number of conditions are needed to begin loosening restrictions. These include:
In order to demonstrate a reduction in the presence of the virus in our community, of the tests that are being conducted, we must see 10% or fewer coming back positive for at least 14 days. With increased testing we will have significantly more data to determine the effectiveness of our measures, when we may be able to loosen them further or determine that they need to be tightened.
Summit County’s health care systems have recently greatly expanded testing capacity, which will allow us to also make decisions regarding possibly lifting some of our local restrictions in the near future. We have developed a Roadmap to Recovery that details specific criteria for when and how our County may move through the Stabilization Phase stages and reopen various different parts of the economy and community. You can view the Roadmap to Recovery here.
Yes. Hotels, short-term rentals, second homes, and timeshares are a critical component to all aspects of our economy and are now open. Short-term rentals must follow all CDPHE guidelines, which suggests waiting 24 between guests checking out and cleaning, and Summit County guidelines, which suggest waiting 72 hours between check-outs and check-ins.
The most recent local Public Health Order allows childcare centers to open. If a childcare center does not believe they are ready to safely open, they can certainly choose not to open. Childcare facilities have been allowed to operate in many places across the state in order to provide care to children of critical workforce. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has released guidance for safe practices in childcare centers. These can be found here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer- at-home/safer-at-home-child-care-facilities
Yes. Pursuant to the Governor’s Order and CDPHE Orders all Non-Critical Retail (As defined by the State) may sell goods through delivery service, window service, walk-up service, drive-through service, drive-up service, curbside delivery, in-store sales. Retailers must follow:
Open at 50% capacity and/or at a capacity that enables the retailer to:
maintain 6-foot distancing between customers and employees,
effectively symptom monitor employees,
provide face coverings or masks and gloves to employees, and
ensure ability to adequately clean and sanitize both back-room and retail spaces - if unable to meet this requirements, continue operating with curbside pick-up / delivery only
According to the Colorado Safer at Home Public Health Order, personal services include but are not limited to:
Yes, these services can now conduct business. These individual services may only be performed with fewer than 10 people in a single location at a maximum of 50% occupancy for the location, whichever is less, including both employees and customers with Physical Distancing Requirements of at least 6 feet of separation between clients/customers when not directly performing service. Both employees and customers must wear at least a cloth face covering or a medical grade mask at all times. Only services that can be performed without the customer removing their mask are permitted. Services must be by appointment only. For more guidance, visit the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment.
Activities that include gatherings of greater than 10 people, contact sports and those that involve high touch equipment are not allowed such as soccer, basketball, baseball and tennis. Solo or non-contact recreation activities like running, walking or hiking in your local community are advised.
The State public health order does not specify an exception for small businesses. Based on the guidance we have reviewed to date the threshold is 50% for all size businesses.
All businesses will be required to complete an application describing how they will meet all of the recommended physical distancing and safety precautions prior to reopening, for in-person, in-store service or any other services. This plan will be posted at the front door, entrance, or another visible location of the establishment and must be adhered to at all times. It will include physical distancing and safety precautions for employees, customers and others entering the establishment. The plan should also be posted on the business’ website. The Summit County Business Physical Distancing Protocol can be found on the County website at here.
During the ongoing COVID pandemic, many companies are distributing rapid serological test kits to detect IgM and/or IgG antibodies in COVID-19 patients. Some of these tests are being marketed as rapid, point-of-care tests (POC) for use outside the laboratory setting. As of April 21, 2020, none of these tests have been evaluated or approved for this type of use.
CDPHE discourages the use of any serological assay that has not been approved by the FDA or at the state level, for any purpose other than research. Furthermore, until better information about test accuracy and immunity following infection is available, CDPHE recommends against using unapproved antibody testing for purposes other than epidemiological studies, convalescent plasma donation and research.
There is no CDC guidance for public health action or interpretation of results from serological testing. The Infectious Disease Society of America has released a COVID-19 Antibody Testing Primer (https://www.idsociety.org/globalassets/idsa/public-health/covid-19/idsa-covid-19-antibody-testing-primer.pdf ) that provides context on the background and interpretation of antibody tests for COVID-19. Results from all COVID-19 testing, including serological testing, must be reported to CDPHE.
Use of serological tests may give a false sense of safety to patients. While results from these tests may indicate that a patient has been exposed to COVID-19, they cannot reliably determine if the patient is currently infected. Due to open questions related to antibodies and immunity, serological tests cannot definitively predict whether a patient will be immune to infection with the virus in the future, or if they can currently spread the virus to others. Negative antibody test results can be the result of testing early in the infection, prior to the development of a strong immunological response.
Additionally, antibody tests may cross react with other seasonal respiratory viruses resulting in false positive results. If and when any of these issues is meaningfully resolved, CDPHE will update guidance accordingly. The most accurate, FDA-approved testing available at this time is molecular based testing, or PCR testing. This type of testing detects the presence of the COVID-19 virus in patient samples, but is not useful in determining past exposure in fully recovered patients.
Unfortunately, we do not have enough data about the presence of the virus in our community to inform us about how safe it may or may not be to have large events over the summer. We believe this virus is here to stay in our community for an extended period of time, up to 18-24 months before there is a vaccine or a treatment. Because of that, it will likely be some time before we encourage or allow large groups to gather due to safety concerns. We have developed a Roadmap to Recovery that details criteria for moving through the Stabilization Phase stages and when we may be able to gather in larger groups. You can view the Roadmap to Recovery here.
Summit County launched an extensive ad campaign on KQSE, La Nueva mix, pushing messaging on social distancing and instructions for people who are experiencing symptoms. We are providing face mask flyers in English and Spanish through meal distribution points. All press releases and Emergency Blog posts are offered in English and Spanish and are being shared on social media. We are in the process of translating all web content into Spanish; working to contract professional services to provide translations for all BOH meetings. Communications and Public Health staff are participating in an equity task force, which focuses on ensuring the Latinx perspective is heard and incorporated into decision making. This includes weekly Facebook town halls with participation up to 1300 people.
This week, a program was launched to provide at least 2,000 cloth face coverings and educational flyers in English and Spanish at the entrance to local grocery stores.
Starting Monday, June 8, Summit Stage will increase service levels along major routes within Summit County, commuter routes to Park County and Lake County, and restore service to Blue River and Copper Mountain.
The following Summit County routes will restore daytime half-hourly departures between 6 am and 6 pm:
In addition to Summit County route service enhancements, inter-county commuter routes will also see expanded service. The Lake County Link commuter route will now offer four trips in each direction:
The Park County commuter route will enhance service to offer the following trips:
Service to Copper Mountain and Blue River will be also be restored on June 8. Departures between Frisco and Copper Mountain will occur on an hourly basis from Frisco Station and Passage Point/Center Village.
Summit Stage will reinitiate service along the Blue River commuter route with the following schedule:
Mountain Mobility complementary paratransit service remains open to the public as an application-based demand-response service with full operations daily between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Travel must be scheduled at least one day in advance by calling (970) 389-1041, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
In accordance with the amended and restated county public health order, several safety measures remain in place on all buses to help prevent community spread of the COVID-19 disease:
For the most up to date information on schedules, visit the Summit Stage Website or download the Summit Stage app.
Surveillance is the work that local public health agencies do to track the presence of a virus in a community. Once someone is confirmed as infected with a virus, contacts are identified by asking about the person’s activities and the activities and roles of the people around them since onset of illness. Contacts can be anyone the person has had contact with. By identifying contacts and then prescribing isolation or quarantine, the surveillance team can help mitigate the spread of the virus. The local surveillance team in Summit County is expanding substantially and new staff are being trained as we speak. Our local public health department is well equipped to handle this.
We are in regular communication with neighboring counties around response, recovery and safer at home. Summit County is attempting to have as much of a regional approach as possible. This includes at least weekly, often daily coordination between Public Health Directors, County and Town Managers, and Emergency Managers.
On April 30, after discussion with the Public Health Director and Board of Health, Summit County Government initiated a change in the language related to the local public health orders to differentiate physical distancing from social distancing. Given the tremendous stress caused by distancing to mitigate the spread of the virus, it was emphasized that community members should physically distance while maintaining social connection. According to Mental Health Colorado, “What we need is social closeness, solidarity, mutual support, and a confidence-building sense of strength in togetherness”. This purposeful change in terminology is intended to encourage people to reach out and connect with others, even if physical proximity is temporarily suspended.
Yes, CDPHE Safer at Home guidelines for Places of Worship allow for a maximum 50% capacity or up to 50 people per room with strict physical distancing and masks. Outdoor wedding ceremonies are permitted up to local capacity levels, as long as groups from different households spaced at least 6 feet apart. For more guidelines and recommendations on weddings, see the CDPHE Places or Worship guidance.
However, it is very important to note that this guidance applies only to wedding ceremonies. Social receptions for wedding ceremonies must still must follow mass gathering limitations, which is limited to 10 people right now.
El objetivo de esta fase es mantener un 60-65% de distanciamiento físico. Los negocios críticos permanecerán abiertos con estrictas precauciones (distanciamiento físico, se deben usar cubrebocas en lugares públicos cerrados y en cualquier otro lugar donde no sea posible mantener 6 pies de separación, limpiezas más frecuentes, etc.).
Según los funcionarios de salud pública, se necesitan varias condiciones para comenzar a soltar las restricciones. Estas incluyen:
Para demostrar una reducción en la presencia del virus en nuestra comunidad, de las pruebas que se están llevando a cabo, debemos ver que 10% o menos vuelven positivas durante al menos 14 días. Con el aumento de las pruebas, tendremos significativamente más datos para determinar la efectividad de nuestras medidas, cuando podamos soltar aún más o determinar que deben ajustarse.
El alojamiento a corto plazo es un componente crítico para todos los aspectos de nuestra economía. A medida que trabajamos para contener el virus, cuantas más personas ingresen a nuestra área, más difícil será lograr un distanciamiento físico adecuado, particularmente con tantos servicios cerrados. Hay muy pocos lugares para esparcir a la gente. Las personas que visitan fuera del condado también pueden importar enfermedades a pesar de todos nuestros esfuerzos para limitar la propagación localmente. Además, a medida que ingresa más gente, ejercen presión sobre una cadena de abastecimiento y podrían abrumar rápidamente a nuestro sistema de salud relativamente pequeño si ocurre un brote más grande.
La más reciente Orden Salud Pública local permite a los centros de atención infantil que abran a partir del 11 de mayo de 2020. Si un centro de cuidado de los niños no cree que están listos para abrir con seguridad para el 11 de Mayo sin duda puede optar por no abrir. Se ha permitido que las instalaciones de cuidado infantil operen en muchos lugares en todo el estado para brindar atención a los niños de la fuerza laboral crítica. El Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente de Colorado ha publicado una guía para prácticas seguras en centros de cuidado infantil. Estas se pueden encontrar aquí: https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer- at-home/safer-at-home-child-care-facilities
En vigencia a partir del 27 de abril del 2020, en conformidad con la Orden del Gobernador y las órdenes de CDPHE, todos los negocios de venta al por menor no críticos (según lo definido por el Estado) pueden vender productos a través del servicio de entrega, servicio de ventanilla, servicio de asistencia, servicio de paso, servicio en el auto y / o entrega en la banqueta.
De acuerdo con la Orden de Salud Pública de Colorado Mas Seguro en el Hogar, los servicios personales incluyen, entre otros:
Estos servicios individuales solo se pueden realizar con menos de 10 personas en un solo lugar con un máximo del 50% de ocupación de el lugar, lo que sea menor, incluidos los empleados y los clientes con Requisitos de distancia física de al menos 6 pies de separación entre clientes/clientela cuando no realizan el servicio directamente. Tanto los empleados como los clientes deben usar al menos un cubrebocas de tela o un cubrebocas de grado médico en todo momento. Solo se permiten los servicios que se pueden realizar sin que el cliente se quite el cubrebocas. Los servicios deben ser solo con cita previa.
Los sistemas de atención médica del Condado de Summit recientemente han ampliado enormemente la capacidad de prueba, lo que nos permitirá también tomar decisiones con respecto a la posibilidad de levantar algunas de nuestras restricciones locales en el futuro cercano. Hemos desarrollado una ruta hacia la recuperación que detalla criterios específicos para cuándo y cómo nuestro Condado puede avanzar a través de las etapas de la Fase de estabilización y reabrir varias partes diferentes de la economía y la comunidad. Puede ver la Ruta Para la Recuperación aquí.
No se permiten actividades que incluyan reuniones de más de 10 personas, deportes de contacto y aquellas que involucren equipos de alto contacto, como fútbol, baloncesto, béisbol y tenis. Se recomiendan actividades recreativas solo o sin contacto, como correr, caminar o caminar por senderos en su comunidad local. No viaje fuera de su comunidad local por recreación. Evite los deportes de contacto o el equipo.
La orden de salud pública del estado no especifica una excepción para las pequeñas empresas. Según la orientación que hemos revisado hasta la fecha, el umbral es del 50% para empresas de todos los tamaños.
Las negocios de venta al por menor y de servicios personales deberán completar una solicitud que describa cómo cumplirán con todas las precauciones de distancia y seguridad física recomendadas antes de la reapertura, para el servicio en persona en la tienda. Este plan se publicará en la puerta principal del establecimiento y se debe cumplir en todo momento. Incluirá distancia física y precauciones de seguridad para empleados, clientes y otras personas que ingresen al establecimiento. El plan también debe publicarse en el sitio web de la empresa. Tenga en cuenta que actualmente no se permiten los servicios o las ventas en persona en la tienda y esta guía para negocios minoristas anticipa aligerar las restricciones en un futuro en el orden de salud pública. El Protocolo de distancia física de negocios del condado de Summit se puede encontrar en el sitio web del condado en aquí.
Durante la actual pandemia de COVID, muchas compañías están distribuyendo kits de pruebas serológicas rápidas para detectar anticuerpos IgM y / o IgG en pacientes con COVID-19. Algunas de estas pruebas se comercializan como pruebas rápidas de diagnóstico (POC) para su uso fuera del entorno del laboratorio. A partir del 21 de abril de 2020, ninguna de estas pruebas ha sido evaluada o aprobada para este tipo de uso.
CDPHE desaconseja el uso de cualquier ensayo serológico que no haya sido aprobado por la FDA o a nivel estatal, para cualquier otro propósito que no sea la investigación. Además, hasta que esté disponible una mejor información sobre la precisión de la prueba y la inmunidad después de la infección, CDPHE recomienda no usar pruebas de anticuerpos no aprobadas para fines que no sean estudios epidemiológicos, donación de plasma convaleciente e investigación.
Hasta el 21 de abril de 2020, ninguna prueba serológica COVID-19 ha sido revisada o recibida por la Autorización de uso de emergencia para su uso fuera del entorno de un laboratorio de complejidad moderado o alto CLIA.
Hasta el 21 de abril de 2020, hay cuatro pruebas serológicas que han sido autorizadas por la FDA para la Autorización de uso de emergencia (EUA) para las pruebas COVID-19. Las pruebas COVID-19 de la FDA EUA se enumeran aquí: https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/emergency-situations-medical-devices/emergency-autorizaciones de uso. Estas pruebas serológicas han sido aprobadas para analizar productos sanguíneos de pacientes con sospecha de infección por COVID-19, y las pruebas deben realizarse dentro de los laboratorios de complejidad moderado o alto CLIA
No existe una guía de los CDC para la acción de salud pública o la interpretación de los resultados de las pruebas serológicas. La Sociedad de Enfermedades Infecciosas de América ha lanzado un Manual de prueba de anticuerpos COVID-19 (https://www.idsociety.org/globalassets/idsa/public-health/covid-19/idsa-covid-19-anticuerpos-testing-primer.pdf ) que proporciona un contexto sobre los antecedentes y la interpretación de las pruebas de anticuerpos para COVID-19. Los resultados de todas las pruebas de COVID-19, incluidas las pruebas serológicas, deben informarse a CDPHE.
El uso de pruebas serológicas puede dar una falsa sensación de seguridad a los pacientes. Si bien los resultados de estas pruebas pueden indicar que un paciente ha estado expuesto a COVID-19, no pueden determinar de manera confiable si el paciente está actualmente infectado. Debido a preguntas abiertas relacionadas con los anticuerpos y la inmunidad, las pruebas serológicas no pueden predecir definitivamente si un paciente será inmune a la infección con el virus en el futuro, o si actualmente pueden transmitir el virus a otros. Los resultados negativos de la prueba de anticuerpos pueden ser el resultado de una prueba temprana en la infección, antes del desarrollo de una fuerte respuesta inmunológica.
Además, las pruebas de anticuerpos pueden reaccionar de forma cruzada con otros virus respiratorios estacionales y dar como resultado resultados falsos positivos. Si alguno de estos problemas se resuelve de manera significativa, CDPHE actualizará la guía en consecuencia. Las pruebas más precisas y aprobadas por la FDA disponibles en este momento son las pruebas basadas en moléculas o pruebas de PCR. Este tipo de prueba detecta la presencia del virus COVID-19 en muestras de pacientes, pero no es útil para determinar la exposición pasada en pacientes completamente recuperados.
Desafortunadamente, no tenemos suficientes datos sobre la presencia del virus en nuestra comunidad para informarnos sobre cuán seguro puede ser o no tener grandes eventos durante el verano. Creemos que este virus está aquí para permanecer en nuestra comunidad por un período prolongado de tiempo, hasta 18-24 meses antes de que haya una vacuna o un tratamiento. Debido a eso, es probable que pase algún tiempo antes de alentar o permitir que grupos grandes se reúnan debido a preocupaciones de seguridad. Hemos desarrollado una Hoja de Ruta Para la Recuperación que detalla los criterios para avanzar a través de las etapas de la Fase de estabilización y cuándo podemos reunirnos en grupos más grandes.

El Condado de Summit lanzó una extensa campaña publicitaria en KQSE, La Nueva mix, promoviendo mensajes sobre distanciamiento social e instrucciones para personas que experimentan síntomas. Estamos proporcionando volantes de cubrebocas en inglés y español a través de puntos de distribución de comidas. Todos los comunicados de prensa y publicaciones del blog de emergencia se ofrecen en inglés y español y se comparten en las redes sociales. Estamos en el proceso de traducir todo el contenido web al español; trabajando para contratar servicios profesionales para proporcionar traducciones para todas las reuniones de BOH. El personal de comunicaciones y salud pública está participando en un grupo de trabajo de equidad, que se enfoca en asegurar que la perspectiva de Latinx se escuche e incorpore en la toma de decisiones. Esto incluye las juntas semanales en Facebook con participación de hasta 1300 personas.
Esta semana, se lanzó un programa para proporcionar al menos 2,000 cubrebocas de tela y volantes educativos en inglés y español en la entrada de las tiendas de abarrotes locales.
La vigilancia es el trabajo que realizan las agencias locales de salud pública para rastrear la presencia de un virus en una comunidad. Una vez que se confirma que alguien está infectado con un virus, los contactos se identifican preguntando sobre las actividades de la persona y las actividades y roles de las personas que lo rodean desde el inicio de la enfermedad. Los contactos pueden ser cualquier persona con la que la persona haya tenido contacto. Al identificar contactos y luego prescribir aislamiento o cuarentena, el equipo de vigilancia puede ayudar a mitigar la propagación del virus. El equipo de vigilancia local en el condado de Summit se está expandiendo sustancialmente y se está capacitando personal nuevo mientras hablamos. Nuestro departamento local de salud pública está bien equipado para manejar esto.
A partir del lunes 27 de Abril Summit Stage reanudará el servicio de tránsito programado en tres rutas de paso fijo:
La seguridad para nuestros conductores y nuestros pasajeros estará garantizada mediante las siguientes precauciones:
El sistema de atención médica del Condado de Eagle ha podido realizar un volumen significativamente mayor de pruebas que les ha permitido reunir más datos relacionados con la propagación del virus. Los sistemas de atención médica del Condado de Summit recientemente han ampliado enormemente su capacidad, lo que nos permitirá también tomar decisiones similares con respecto a nuestras propias restricciones locales en el futuro cercano. El condado de Eagle todavía está desanimando a los visitantes de la comunidad, pero está tratando de aligerar las restricciones para los locales.
Estamos en comunicación regular con los condados vecinos sobre respuesta, recuperación y seguridad en el hogar. El condado de Summit está intentando tener el mayor enfoque regional posible. Esto incluye al menos una coordinación semanal, a menudo diaria, entre los directores de salud pública, los gerentes del condado y de la ciudad y los gerentes de emergencia.
El 30 de abril, luego de una discusión con el Director de Salud Pública y la Junta de Salud, el Gobierno del Condado de Summit inició un cambio en el lenguaje relacionado con las órdenes locales de salud pública para diferenciar el distanciamiento físico del distanciamiento social. Dado el tremendo estrés causado por el distanciamiento para mitigar la propagación del virus, se enfatizó que los miembros de la comunidad deben distanciarse físicamente mientras mantienen la conexión social. Según Mental Health Colorado, "lo que necesitamos es cercanía social, solidaridad, apoyo mutuo y un sentido de fortaleza en la unión que fomente la confianza". Este cambio intencional en la terminología tiene la intención de alentar a las personas a comunicarse y conectarse con otros, incluso si la proximidad física se suspende temporalmente.
A septic contractor/Installer must be tested and licensed by the Summit County Environmental Health Department. The test is open book, taken from the current OWS Regulations. There are fees associated with testing and licensing. Regulations are available on the EH webpage or may be purchased at the office. Testing takes, on average, 3 hours. Licenses must be renewed annually. If a license lapses the test must be retaken. More information can be found at the link below.
Yes it can. In order to permit an OWTS design, EH staff must visit the property and verify that the soils/groundwater conditions are suitable and that all required setbacks can be met. Freezing temperatures and snow can prevent us from doing this. Generally, OWTS permits cannot be issued during the months of October – May.
If ground water is not checked during seasonally high groundwater, EH staff may conservatively assume shallow groundwater and require an OWTS design that is appropriate for high groundwater. Seasonal high groundwater is generally during May – June depending on elevation and weather. The ideal time to obtain an OWTS permit is in June. Consult with your designer or this office for more details.
OWTS are generally constructed between June – November due to the challenges of working in freezing temperatures and snow.

All Summit County roads are assigned a Summit County road number to assist Emergency Services in locating a specific address. Roads that have a county road number may or may not be maintained by the county.
The short answer is because it hasn't been accepted for county maintenance. If you would like to have your road maintained by the county, you must submit your request to the Summit County Engineer. For a complete description of the process, see Section 5500 of the Road and Bridge Standards.
Parking on county roads is illegal in Summit County, and it is the responsibility of every property owner to provide adequate off right of way parking. On road parking presents particular difficulties during snow removal season, and the Sheriff’s Department may order illegally parked vehicles to be towed.
During snow removal operations, snow is pushed off the road onto the county right of way. Private driveways access through this right of way area and are the responsibility of the homeowner to keep clear.
When clearing your driveway, either by yourself or with the aid of a private contractor, be aware that it is unlawful to push or throw snow onto or across the roadway. Your snow must be disposed of on your own property. Snow pushed onto the road not only makes plowing more difficult for road crews, but can cause a dangerous obstacle in the roadway or a nuisance to your neighbors.
Arterial roads, such as the Dillon Dam Road, Swan Mountain Road, and school bus routes, receive priority maintenance. Secondary priority is given to collector roads through subdivisions, followed by other lower volume roads.
Questions regarding speed limits on roads or methods used for slowing traffic should be directed to the County Engineer at (970) 668-4212.
Requests for signage should be directed to the County Engineer at (970) 668-4212.
Due to the sensitivity of digging within the public right of way, right of way permits are not issued online. An Application for Right of Way Permit (PDF) shall be completed and submitted to the Construction Inspector along with all required attachments.
