Boulder County Closures and Cancellations

COVID-19 Closures & Cancellations

All Boulder County facilities are closed for business until Monday, June 1 (read announcement). With the exception of emergency response, public safety, road construction, county trail management, and a few other essential services, services that can be delivered electronically or by mail or phone will be available during this closure. This includes motor vehicle registration, recording, and taxation services.

Additionally, Boulder County is on a Stay-at-Home order through May 8 (read announcement).

These measures are being put in place to help reduce the rate of transmission and the rapid rise of cases, known as ‘flattening the curve.” This protects the integrity of our health care system and our most vulnerable populations.

County staff who are able to work remotely will be doing so, which may delay responses to general inquiries. However, some county employees will report to work locations to perform duties in response to the COVID-19 emergency or to perform functions that are related to public safety or are required by statute.

Boulder County has compiled a list of services accessible online at Online Services page.
