Planning for Recovery
From the start of the City of Arvada's response to the COVID-19 health crisis, planning for recovery has been an important piece. A Recovery Team was established early on, and now the City continues to respond to the health and economic challenges associated with COVID-19.
Our Principles for Recovery
The City's approach supports the state's recovery objectives, including:
- Work to suppress the virus
- Increase ability to conduct testing and containment
- Help protect those most at risk for COVID-19
- Support the healthcare system's ability to handle increased demand
- Support social distancing policies that allow for economic growth and stability
- Ongoing monitoring and evaluation of policies and their impact
The City has identified specific principles to guide resuming in-person services and achieving long-term recovery:
- The health, safety and well-being of our community and employees remains our top priority.
- The economic recovery of our community and organization is essential to long-term recovery.
- We will reopen facilities in phases and with extreme caution and care while acknowledging the risks.
- We are nimble and flexible in our planning and decision making as we respond to evolving circumstances.
- We are committed to working collaboratively and remaining aligned as a team in our recovery efforts.
- We will continue to follow the advice of state and local health experts regarding physical distancing and other guidelines.
- We will continue to involve the community in the recovery process, including seeking to understand varying comfort levels and abilities to embrace changes to physical distancing and activities.
We continue to follow state and county health guidelines prioritizing the health and safety of the Arvada community and members of the City team in offering remote services (in-person services by appointment only).
