COVID-19 Resources for Tourism

COVID-19 Resources for Tourism

The tourism landscape in Colorado is changing weekly as we continue through the winter travel season. To help tourism businesses navigate these uncertain times, the Colorado Tourism Office has provided industry-specific resources to help you through the COVID-19 pandemic.

To check restrictions that may impact your business, please be sure to check the Colorado Public Health and Environment's County Dial to address you area's level of "openness."

Below you will be able to check operating guidelines and additional funding resources specific to the tourism industry. Consider helping us promote a responsible tourism message by sharing any of the assets in our Care for Colorado and Coloradans Toolkit.
