Pitkin County will be replacing the Traveler Affidavit with a Traveler Awareness Program starting Friday, March 5th.
Effective Friday, Mar. 2021 visitors will still be required to fill out an agreement on the Pitkin County website and are encouraged, although not required, per CDC guidance to get tested before visiting Pitkin County.
5 Star Business Certification now available:
Pitkin County's application for 5 Star Certification was submitted to the state on January 22, and we anticipate receiving a response this week. The Snowmass Village Town Council wrote a letter in support of the application on January 19th.
Applications for businesses will open on Thursday, January 28th. Currently, Pitkin County is implementing a 5 Star certification process for restaurants, gyms/fitness centers, and personal services only, as they had the most restrictive capacity limits in Level Red. Bars that operate like restaurants are also eligible. Pitkin County will initially only implement 5 Star Certification applications from restaurants to ensure a successful rollout of the program while still accepting applications from other sectors.
As a reminder, here is the timeline for this program. And, below are resources to help you prepare your business prior to applications opening on Thursday.
- Restaurant 5 Star Checklist
Please direct questions surrounding the 5 star program to Raleigh Bacharach to Pitkin County Health. Additional information will be available on the Pitkin County Health website later this week.
