Telluride Coronavirus Update
On behalf of the Telluride community, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19. We are committed to doing our part to reduce the spread of this virus and hope you will join us in our mission. The virus is present in Telluride and San Miguel County, and health officials advise the public to follow CDC and County guidelines and mandates to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Starting May 2 through May 31, San Miguel County will follow the "Safer at Home" order, which aligns with the state's current executive order, with county specific modifications. During Phase One of this order, county-wide travel restrictions continue to be in place, and travel into and around San Miguel County is limited to local residents only. Hotels and short-term rentals will remain closed through the month, and restaurants and bars will be open for takeout, but not for dine-in service. Click here to view restaurants that are offering takeout. Retail and personal services can resume operations for San Miguel County residents on May 2 with best practices in place. Those who cannot shop Telluride stores in-person are encouraged to support our businesses through online purchases.
We are estimating a mid-June opening for short-term lodging (with a carefully phased approach), limited visitors and a potential lift on quarantine for returning residents. Once the State announces their plan for summer camps and restaurants on May 27, the County will take that information, modify if needed, and incorporate it into the timeline. This page will be updated once opening dates have been confirmed.
Many festivals have been cancelled including Mountainfilm (held virtually May 15-25), Bluegrass Festival, Yoga Festival, 4th of July Celebration, Ride Festival. and Jazz Festival. Check our festivals and events page for updates.
In order to protect the health and wellness of our small community, the Town of Telluride passed a public health ordinance requiring everyone to wear a face mask in all public indoor places.
For real-time information, please visit the San Miguel County website.
We will post further state and community updates on this page as needed. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. Please stay connected to our social channels for Telluride inspiration and a dose of #telluridecalm.
