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.

Welcome to Alamosa County!

Our thriving community is home to over 15,000 residents. Alamosa is the commercial hub of the San Luis Valley and the gateway to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.

Equipped with prime agricultural land, innovative businesses in energy, industry, cultural heritage, and transportation, Alamosa County residents and visitors also enjoy access to some of Colorado's best wilderness and outdoor recreation. Our climate is perfect for the agricultural production of barley, potatoes, alfalfa, and with 350+ days of sunshine a year, we are one of the most productive locations for solar power plants in the U.S.
