COVID-19 Information and Resources

Monthly COVID-19 Update

Continuum of Colorado is continuing to follow CDPHE and CDC guidance for re-opening to the public. All CoC staff that previously worked out of our Inverness Office location will either continue to work remotely or will be moving to our Jewell Office location at the end of June. We are hoping to reopen our offices at the Jewell Office location to the public on September 1st, 2021. This will be dependent on continued guidance from CDPHE, CDC, and our local governing agencies, as well as completion of some construction that will be taking place at the Jewell Office location. If you need to contact us, please call the main line at 303-214-3370.
