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.
