Colorado Travel & COVID-19

La Junta is open to visitors! We in Colorado are on a steady, thoughtful path to reopening our tourism economy. Many Colorado restaurants are able to serve food and alcohol for takeout or home delivery, and a full range of lodgings are open to accommodate travelers.

Colorado State Park campgrounds reopened on May 12. Please refer to cpw.state.co.us for park-specific information. The National Park Service is increasing access and services in a phased approach. Before visiting a park, please check the park website to determine its operating status. The public can find and track alerts across parks by state here.

As of now, be aware that many tourism attractions remain closed, including arts and cultural facilities, entertainment venues and sports arenas. Please be aware that some establishments may require the wearing of facial coverings in stores and other enclosed environments.

As Colorado continues to take positive steps toward reactivating our economy, the health and safety of both visitors and residents remain our highest priority. As you visit Colorado, we encourage you to embrace our new interpretation of responsible tourism — showing care not only for our destinations but for the people who call Colorado home.

As you recreate in Colorado’s magnificent outdoors, please remember to practice trail safety etiquette. While it’s important to stick to the trails, be prepared to step off a trail onto a rock or a bare place to maintain physical distancing. Recreators can use COTREX for up-to-date information about trail closures and activity alerts.

Officially, Colorado remains in the Safer at Home phase, focused on a goal of maintaining 60% to 65% physical distancing.

We ask you to honor the sacrifices so many in our state are making to fend off the impacts of coronavirus and respect the City, County and State restrictions in order to create a safe atmosphere for everyone to enjoy Colorado. If you are running a fever or showing any symptoms of coronavirus, please stay home or self-isolate. If we all do our part, we can all make the most of a beautiful Colorado summer season.
