Telluride eateries reopening responsibly

By Justin Criado, Editor 16 hrs ago 

While the Town of Telluride enters the second week of reopening the local economy, businesses are adapting to the new public health guidelines. Eateries are now open to in-person business, which includes a 50-percent or 50-percon, whichever is less, capacity limit. The county’s guidelines also limit groups to no more than eight people at a time.

Gondola opening date delayed; expected to open June 15


In light of COVID-19 concerns, the gondola will not open for the 2020 summer as originally scheduled on May 21, 2020, due to public health orders and a delayed start to required maintenance work.

Gondola officials are anticipating an opening date of June 15, 2020, with new health guidelines, but that is subject to change given the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation.

“As we slowly reopen our towns, our full- and part-time residents and guests will once again be counting on the gondola to get them to our farmer’s markets, shops, restaurants, and even their favorite trailheads,” said Mountain…

(May 12, 2020) -- San Miguel County, CO – Public Health Officials announced plans to continue to align with the State’s orders at a special meeting of the Board of County Commissioners today.

In an amendment to current orders, Public Health officials will allow non-critical businesses to extend their workforce beginning this Friday, May 15th at 12:01am to residents of the Western Slope. Current orders restrict workers to San Miguel County residents only, unless an exception has been granted via the County’s permitting process.

“Our goal is to thoughtfully loosen our restrictions categorically based on what is happening in our county and to mirror the State orders where it makes sense to do so,” Grace Franklin, County Public Health Director said.
