Loveland Economic Development Update: Making Strides Towards the New Normal & Preparing for the Next Round of Federal Funding

Good Afternoon Loveland Business Community,
We are all ready to get back to normal. But what that looks like moving forward is the biggest question we’re all facing as we approach the expiration date of the current stay-at-home order on April 26.
Monday, Governor Polis presented multiple scenarios for opening up our great state without undoing all of the hard work and sacrifices we’ve made in the past month.   The governor’s presentation showed the next level of physical distancing and what “Safer at Home” will look like for citizens and businesses starting Monday April 27. Initially, restaurants and bars will remain closed to interior dining, but retail, personal services, real estate, child care, elective medical services and offices will be allowed to open with strict precautions. These strict precautions will be defined later this week as we get ready for the next phase of this quarantine.
It is imperative that we get these next few phases absolutely right to ensure that this economic setback wasn’t in vain. We will come back stronger, but we need to be strategic in how we return to normal operations.
