COVID-19 and Travel to Estes Park

Updated 3/30/2020

Visit Estes Park (VEP) is following the rapidly evolving news about Coronavirus (COVID-19) both domestically and internationally. We understand that our community and travelers may be concerned about COVID-19 and how it may affect them. The safety of our travelers and residents is our highest priority and VEP is committed to providing accurate and updated information about public health conditions in Estes Park.

In response to COVID-19, Colorado Governor Jared Polis enacted a statewide "Stay At Home" order effective Thursday, March 26, 2020. The restriction will remain in place until April 11. The Governor's order defers to more protective orders issued by local public health authorities. Larimer County's "Stay At Home" order is effective through April 17. The only exceptions involve essential trips such as grocery shopping or health care appointments. 

While we would love to welcome you to our town, now is not the time to vacation in Estes Park. Many of Estes Park’s key tourism attractions are closed including restaurants and bars, arts and cultural facilities, entertainment venues, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Events have been canceled.

While 'escaping' to the great outdoors and Estes Park may seem like a logical idea, our mountain community has limited medical facilities and personnel whose services need to be reserved for our residents. Non-essential travel is discouraged at this time per the State of Colorado and Larimer County.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe. We look forward to welcoming you when it is safe to travel once again.
