As part of its continued response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the City of Arvada has extended the closure of most City facilities to the public through May 30, 2020. The extension provides additional time for the City team to evaluate facilities and services to help ensure that physical distancing and other safety measures are in place to serve residents in-person and support onsite members of the City team. The Municipal Court and the PD substations are open with social distancing and other safety measures in place. For more information on the City's Recovery Plans, visit arvada.org/COVID-Recovery. Please note: This facilities closure extension does not apply to businesses in Arvada.
History has shown that communities with strong social connections are better equipped to recover from a major crisis. Now, more than ever, it’s important to focus on strengthening social ties and a united sense of community while remaining physically distant to work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Our challenge to you - how will you stay connected to your neighbors and nurture relationships between neighbors while being physically distant? Get creative! Here's a few ideas to get you started.
- Collect your neighbors' contact information using our Talent Bank tool to start a phone tree or group text chain
- Front yard zumba classes
- Window art scavenger hunts
- Virtual neighborhood game nights
- Physically distant porch or driveway happy hours
- Neighborhood zoofari
