Littleton Affected by COVID Increases and New Health Orders
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) notified Arapahoe County, the Tri-County Health Department, and all of the cities within the county that the sharp increase in COVID incidence rates requires moving from Level Yellow to Level Orange: High Risk, effective Wednesday, November 11 at 5 p.m. Restrictions will be implemented across all sectors as described in Section II.E of Public Health Order 20-36. As of today, the county’s incidence rates are:
- Percent positivity: 10.15%
- 2-week COVID-19 case count (new cases): 4,050
The increasing positivity rate has also impacted the City of Littleton with confirmed cases among employees in the Littleton Police Department, the Littleton Center, as well as the Municipal Court. As a result, the Littleton Municipal Court is closed through November 27 and cases scheduled during this time will be continued to future dates in December. The court will mail notices with the new dates to the affected parties. Online payments can be made at www.littletoncocourtpmts.com. The court clerk can be reached by phone at 303-795-3837 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Police staffing will continue at normal operational levels while the Littleton Center is open by appointment only.
Bemis Library has reduced its capacity to 50 people at a time in the building and computer use is limited to one hour per person, per day. Visitors may have to wait to enter and are asked to keep visits short. Curbside pickup service is encouraged and is available by calling 303-795-3961. All returned library materials are quarantined for 72 hours per guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the American Library Association.
The Littleton Museum is also reducing the number of visitors to 50 per hour. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 303-795-3950.
Since COVID began, contract and in-house custodial staff have focused on disinfecting common areas regularly and have fogged all areas when an exposure was identified. The Littleton Police and dispatch spaces are fogged twice weekly. All police vehicles and Omnibuses are treated with a long-acting polymer disinfectant. Bi-polar ionization equipment has been installed in central HVAC systems at the Littleton Center, Municipal Courthouse, Library and Museum which actively mitigates pathogens throughout the buildings. All city employees must check their temperature before entering their building and those who can work remotely are doing so.
The CDPHE can move the county to a more restrictive level at any point if circumstances warrant more aggressive restrictions. Should the county metrics improve during the more restrictive phase, the county would need to maintain those metrics for at least two weeks to move to a less restrictive phase.
The Littleton City Council and staff ask every resident to do their part to stop the spread.
