COVID-19: We Can Do This

Update June 15: The City of Arvada continues the process of reopening City facilities to in-person services while prioritizing the health and safety of the Arvada community and members of the City team. During the phased re-opening process, the City continues to provide most services remotely, and residents are encouraged to access online or remote services whenever possible. Beginning June 19, City Hall will be open to the public for limited in-person services. Residents are encouraged to review City services updates at arvada.org/services-update or call the City of Arvada at 720-898-7000 during business hours to confirm that a service is open and available.   

Please note: This information applies to City buildings, not to businesses in Arvada, which are encouraged to follow state and local health orders

The spread of COVID-19 has led to uncertain times. But we have the power to help stop the spread, care for our family and friends, and to stay connected to our community. We have launched a resource where our neighbors can share stories, tips and inspiration for thriving during this challenging time. Visit Speak Up Arvada #WeCanDoThis to join the conversation.

We can do this, Arvada, and below are some tips for getting started.

Protect Yourself

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has steps you can take to protect yourself from any respiratory infection and help control community spread:
  • Following physical distancing guidelines by avoiding groups and standing at least six feet from other people.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your face including your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid being around anyone with cold- or flu-like symptoms.
  • Stay home except for essential activites. If you are sick, just stay home.
  • Wear masks or face coverings (scarves, t-shirts, bandanas) whenever you are out of the house. 

Strengthen Your Neighborhood

Strong social connections are so important to our ability to recover as a community.

  • Create a resilient neighborhood. Do you have your neighbors’ contact information so you can start a phone tree, or group message for regular check ins to make sure everyone has what they need? Use our Talent Bank tool to collect that info.
  • Once you have everyone's contact information, determine what the needs are. Offer to run errands or pick up groceries or mow the lawn for someone who is elderly or immunocompromised. Schedule regular phone calls with someone who is simply paralyzed by anxiety.

Creative Neighboring Our challenge to you - how will you stay connected to your neighbors/nurture the relationships between neighbors while being physically distant? Think creatively. Learn more about ways to neighbor during COVID-19.
