1/27/21: Information from the El Paso County Health Department
Additionally, there now is a call line at the state: Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline
9/9/20: On September 1 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced an order to stop residential evictions to halt the spread of COVID-19. The order was published in the Federal Register on September 4. It becomes effective on publication and will last until December 31, 2020, unless extended.
The order institutes a temporary eviction moratorium. It states that a “landlord . . . shall not evict any covered person from any residential property in any State or U.S. territory” in which there are COVID-19 cases. The term “covered person” includes any tenant who states—under the penalty of perjury—to their landlord, owner, or other person with the power to evict that the attached conditions have been met. A pre-publication of the order is attached.
The order includes a declaration for tenants. A tenant must provide a copy of the declaration to their landlord, owner, or other individual who has the right to evict. Each adult listed on the lease must complete the declaration. The declaration must be true under a penalty of perjury. The declaration for tenants is attached.
3/17/20: Effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020, CSHA lobbies will be closed to the public until further notice based upon CDC and Governmental recommendations related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In an attempt to best serve you, business operations will continue via email, postal mail, and telephone. Please see the below notices regarding dropping off documentation and contacting staff.
