Avon Announces Closure of Avon Recreation Center & Operational Adjustments Following Public Health Order
Avon, CO – The Town of Avon is taking immediate measures to implement the Standing Public Health Order issued by Eagle County Department of Health & Environment to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community. We are adjusting our protocols that will emphasize social distancing practices in our day-to-day municipal operations and will be canceling and/or adjusting public gatherings according to the standing order. We ask that you conduct as much business with the Town of Avon as possible via phone and/or online services. Operational changes include the following:
• Avon Recreation Center until at least April 8, 2020 in response to the Eagle County Public Health and Environment Order issued March 12, 2020 which prohibits gatherings of more than 50 persons. All recreation center passes will be extended through the duration of the facility closure. All recreation programs through the closure are cancelled, and the program fees will be refunded as a household credit to the members’ accounts. We apologize for the inconvenience.
