Johnstown, CO - November 11, 2020 -- Town of Johnstown officials have decided to close all non-emergency Town facilities to the public in the wake of rising COVID-19 numbers. This closure supports state and county advice in helping to mitigate and slow the spread of COVID-19 amidst residents as well as staff.

The Town will still be conducting business online, through email, and also through phone calls and intends on providing the same level of service remotely that residents expect in-office (minus, of course, the in-person interaction).

The closure includes the following facilities:

  • Town Hall, 450 S. Parish Avenue
  • Public Works, 201 S. 1st Place
  • Community Center (Senior Center), 101 Charlotte Street
  • Municipal Court, 450 S. Parish Avenue
  • Police Department Headquarters, 430 S. Parish Avenue
  • Police Substation, 4890 Ronald Reagan Boulevard

Town officials are continuing to monitor the situation in an effort to make the right call for the safety of Johnstown residents and employees. At this time, Town officials prefer to err on the side of caution in implementing this closure and encourage residents and staff to continue to watch their distance from others, wash their hands, and wear a mask.
