The current public health order for Alamosa County is Governor Polis' Safer-at-Home order. There is no local public health order.
Alamosa County offices are open to the public as of May 7, 2020. The county is open to the public with regular hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All county employees are required to wear masks and we ask that the public do so as well. Strict social distancing is required and signs and floor markings are displayed throughout our buildings to help maintain a minimum six foot separation. We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
