Routt County offices in the Historic Courthouse, Annex and Human Services Building will be closed to the general public starting on Wednesday, November 18th due to the spike in COVID-19 cases in Routt County.  Services will still be available to the public electronically and by appointment. Check each department’s webpage on the Routt County webpage for more information. As by state and county public health orders, facial masks and social distancing are required when entering any Routt County building.


“In response to the heightened health and safety requirements for Routt County and in consultation with the Board of County Commissioners, we are closing the County's core campus buildings (Historic Courthouse, Annex and Human Services Building) to the general public.   We plan to make this directive effective Wednesday, November 18th. I realize that this change will cause hardship and inconveniences for our community members, but we all know the absolute importance of getting the latest spike in COVID -19 cases under control,” said Mark Collins, Interim County Manager.


The County buildings will be accessible to staff members. Departments will be working at reduced staff levels on site, with most employees working remotely.  Routt County is attempting to attempting to achieve an overall occupancy level of 25 per the state’s guidelines on office-based businesses.  


Members of the public will be directed to conduct their business remotely online or by appointment.  This is the same protocol that was followed in the Spring during Stay at Home. Departments will follow all appropriate health and safety protocols. Please check each department’s webpage for more details:


Exterior doors will be locked, and informational signage will be installed.
