Local Preparation and Coordination

Commerce City has created a COVID-19 Taskforce following guidance from local and state public health partners. Our priority is keeping the residents of our community safe and providing accurate information. We are monitoring the situation and are prepared to act if we have a reported case in our community. City staff is in close communication with the Tri-County Health Department and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) regarding COVID-19, more commonly known as the coronavirus.

Commerce City issued a Local Disaster Declaration on Wednesday, March 12. This declaration allows the city to effectively deploy resources and coordinate with federal, state, and county emergency agencies and public health agencies regarding response, recovery, and mitigation efforts. 

City leadership is working to ensure that measures are in place if we see a local outbreak with community transmission. Those measures may include virtual public meetings or cancelling city events or programs.

Safety Tips

The CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to stay informed and stay safe. Stay informed with reliable sources of information and share accurate information with neighbors, friends and co-workers, especially people who may have difficulty receiving or understanding the information. 

Community spread can mean a few different things.

  • Limited person-to-person spread (or transmission) means a person in Colorado became infected from a known exposure to another person in Colorado.
  • Limited community spread (or transmission) means there are cases and outbreaks in certain communities where people became infected, and we are unable to identify the source.
  • Widespread community spread (or transmission) means there are cases and outbreaks in many communities where people are spreading the virus to other people.
  • Be prepared for community spread of COVID-19 in Colorado.

PRACTICE EVERYDAY ACTIONS

  • Frequently and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, or use your inner elbow or sleeve.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Stay home if you’re sick, and keep your children home if they are sick.
  • Clean surfaces in your home, and personal items such as cell phones, using regular household products.

PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING

  • Don’t shake hands. Instead, bump fists or elbows.
  • When possible, increase distance between people to six feet to help reduce spread.
  • Consider whether you want to take a trip or attend public gatherings.
  • Follow CDC guidelines on travel.
  • If there is ongoing spread in your community, consider reducing the number of large group gatherings or activities.  
  • Discourage children and teens from gathering in other public places if school is closed.
  • CDPHE and CDC recommend canceling or postponing in-person events of 50 people or more.
