Douglas County helps reduce COVID-19 transmission by closing facilities to the public

Nearly all county services will continue during closure, including more than 40 online services.

Consistent with guidelines issued by the White House and Colorado Governor Jared Polis, Douglas County will close most County buildings effective March 17. While the Douglas County Justice Center and the Highlands Ranch Sheriff Substation will remain open to the public, the Sheriff’s Office is encouraging citizens’ use of online services.

County departments and offices will remain staffed to support ongoing County operations. County services will continue during this closure, the duration of which has yet to be determined. Those seeking County services are encouraged to first visit DoItOnlineDouglas.com.

“Through leveraging technology, drop boxes and other innovative solutions our goal is to continue to provide as many County services as possible, while also doing our part to protect the health and safety of our communities,” said Commissioner and Board Chair, Roger Partridge. “Because of the high volume of residents who use our facilities, we want to ensure we are doing our part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19,” Partridge said.

On March 13, the Board of County Commissioners issued a local emergency declaration to unlock resources, organize county response strategies and provide additional assistance for municipalities that are dealing with COVID-19. The declaration allows the county to support the work of Tri-County Health in managing the health crisis.

The 18th Judicial District Court will be closed on Tuesday, March 17 and Wednesday, March 18, 2020, to determine future schedules and activities. More information will be posted at www.courts.state.co.us.
