Gunnison County Second Amended Public Health Order Related to Event
Effective today, March 16, 2020, the Gunnison County Public Health Director, Joni Reynolds, issued a “Second Amended Public Health Order Related to Event,” recorded in the office of the Gunnison County Clerk and Recorder at Reception No. 665653.
This order states that:
“II.I. Residential and commercial construction sites may otherwise continue to operate so long as in compliance with this Order if they receive an express, written exemption from the Public Health Director after providing her sufficient information, in her sole discretion, to ascertain compliance with this Order. Residential home and repair services (electrician, plumbing, propane delivery, trash, recycling and sanitation services, residential and commercial cleaning and home care services) may continue so long as they are in compliance with this Order.”
This includes septic system work as well as building construction work. In order to receive an express, written exemption from Joni Reynolds, the Public Health Director, you must provide her with sufficient information, in her sole discretion, to ascertain compliance with the Public Health Order.
We understand that this news is terribly inconvenient and stressful and are providing the online form that we created to help you demonstrate compliance with the order for your jobsite. If your jobsite is in compliance with the order and you request an exemption, please fill out the online form and return it to our Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Department will be the point of intake for the form and ensure that it is presented to the Public Health Director, Joni Reynolds, for her review and consideration.
Additionally, please know that there will be no inspections at jobsites that have not received an express, written exemption from the Public Health Director, Joni Reynolds.
We also understand that you will have questions. Please email or call our office. We are open and are providing essential functions to serve the community. Please note that our offices are currently not open to general public for walk-in customers—all business is being conducted via phone or email.
Thank you for your help in limiting the spread of the corona virus. We appreciate your cooperation and realize the sacrifice that is being asked of you, your employees, and your clients.
