Out of precaution to keep our employees and visitors safe, the City of Brighton will extend its temporary closure of all city buildings to the public through April 16. The extended closure is in line with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s public health order to close many establishments in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, effective at 8 a.m. on March 17 for the duration of 30 days.

City operations will continue but visitors will not be allowed in the buildings. This schedule is subject to change, as the city continues to evaluate information from our local and state partners.

The following buildings will be closed to the public:

  • Brighton City Hall, 500 S. 4th Ave.

  • Historic City Hall, 22 S. 4th Ave. 

  • Brighton Recreation Center, 555 N. 11th Ave. 

  • Eagle View Adult Center, 1150 Prairie Center Parkway

  • Armory Performing Arts Center, 300 Strong St.

The Brighton Police Department will remain open. Essential public safety services will continue and measures are in place to continue non-emergency operations. 

“As information is rapidly changing, it is important that we continue to take precautionary measures that protect the health and safety of our residents and employees,” Acting City Manager Marv Falconburg said. “While we know this changes the way we do business, it is important that we do our part to slow the spread of this virus and I encourage everyone to do the same.”

Residents may continue to contact the city by phone or email for questions or service needs, or visit www.brightonco.gov for online services. A list of frequently asked questions is also available at www.brightonco.gov/covid-2019. 

The city encourages the community to continue practicing actions that help prevent exposure, including the following CDC recommendations

  • Clean your hands often

  • Avoid close contact

  • Stay home if you’re sick

  • Cover coughs and sneezes

  • Wear a facemask if you are sick
