Colorado Parks and Wildlife Glenwood Springs office closure

Glenwood Springs Office CPW
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. – In conjunction with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Garfield County Health Department, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is closing its Glenwood Springs office effective immediately (Located at 0088 Wildlife Way, Exit 109, Interstate 70).

“We’re keeping state parks open and encouraging people to get outdoors, exercise individually, get some fresh air, and stay healthy,” said JT Romatzke, Regional Manager for CPW’s Northwest Region. “While outdoor recreation is open in Colorado, we’re working closely with local and state health officials to make a determination about facilities where people may congregate or become exposed to community spread of viruses.” 

Out of an abundance of caution, and to further assist in minimizing the possible spread of COVID-19 CPW is closing the Glenwood Springs office until further notice. During the closure, the office will be thoroughly cleaned and staff is being asked to take precautions in accordance with CDPHE guidance for residents of Garfield County.

Colorado’s mountain communities were the first to encounter COVID-19 and have been hit hardest by new cases. Garfield County has confirmed community spread and, along with other mountain communities, is encouraging residents to follow health advisories and avoid person-to-person contact when possible. 

CPW customers throughout Colorado are encouraged to avoid visiting offices when possible. Instead, customers should utilize the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website or call CPW at 303-297-1192.
