BLM Colorado COVID-19 Updates
Continuing our service to the public while doing our part to address COVID-19 is very important. You may continue to enjoy BLM-managed public lands. The health and safety of staff and visitors is our number one priority. Please follow local, state, and CDC guidance when planning your visit to public lands.
Visitors may continue to enjoy BLM-managed public lands in a safe and responsible manner. We recommend visiting areas close to home while avoiding very popular or crowded locations where social distancing may be difficult and limiting group activities to members of your household. Please note that existing rules and regulations apply.
The BLM urges visitors to do their part when visiting your public lands as some visitor services may be limited due to limited staff availability in some areas. We recommend:
- bringing your own supplies such as disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, and toilet paper
- packing out your trash
- reducing the handling of cash by paying recreation fees through Recreation.gov or with a check, where available
*** Please note that the BLM will be responsive to changing circumstances, and this information may change at any time. We will do our best to update this information but recommend that you also contact local offices.***
