Visitor Resources During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Summit County is welcomes our visitors during the summer 2020 season, despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite you to hike our mountains, dine in our restaurants, shop in our retail businesses, raft our rivers and stay in our lodging businesses.

We ask that all our residents and visitors abide by the new protocols in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Summit County Public Health Order

Summit County has a public health order in place to contain the spread of COVID-19 and protect everyone’s health and safety. It’s important for all Summit County residents and visitors to abide by the restrictions in the Summit County Public Health Order.

Five Commitments for Containment

Summit County asks all residents and visitors to commit to these five actions to contain the spread of COVID-19.

  1. I will maintain 6 feet of physical distance from other individuals. Physical distancing is one of the most effective prevention measures against COVID-19. It’s important to keep at least 6 feet of distance from anyone not in your own household, to the greatest extent possible.
  2. I will wash my hands often, for at least 20 seconds. Hand washing is especially important after visiting public settings, and before eating or touching your face. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Find out more about hand washing and other strategies to protect yourself and others.
  3. I will cover my face in public. Cloth face coverings are required in Summit County in all publicly accessible indoor spaces for everyone ages 3 and older; masks are also required outdoors whenever 6 feet of distance from other individuals may not possible. Face coverings are not a substitute for physical distancing. Find out more about face coverings.

4. I will stay home when I am sick. If you have any symptoms of illness (e.g., cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache), isolating yourself from others, including household members, will help protect their health and limit the spread of disease. Find out more about what to do if you’re sick.

5. I will get tested immediately if I have COVID-19 symptoms. Getting tested right after COVID-19 symptoms (e.g., cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache) develop can aid in your treatment and provide valuable information to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to other people. Test results are extremely valuable to public health officials who are working to assess and control the spread of disease in our community. It is easy, convenient and free for visitors to get tested for COVID-19 in Summit County. Learn more about testing in Summit County.
