On June 2, City Council voted to reopen Brighton City Hall and Historic City Hall. Hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Per state guidelines in indoor public spaces, face coverings are required for anyone over the age of 11 years old (excluding those who can’t medically tolerate a face covering) who’d like to enter the facilities. To enure the safety of visitors, all employees are required to wear a face covering while in public areas, take their temperature upon entering city buildings, and practice social distancing measures where appropriate. Any employee registering a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius will be sent home. Contact tracing will be done for every employee who tests positive for COVID-19.
Additionally, the city has taken precautionary measures to safeguard residents and visitors including sneeze guards at all customer services counters, increased sanitation and disinfection practices with EPA and CDC approved disinfectants, extra towels and spray disinfectants in communal spaces, and providing face coverings for visitors to the building if needed. Many departments are offering the opportunity to make advance appointments to eliminate waiting and lines, and many services are still available online.
Brighton Recreation Center: The Brighton Recreation Center is open to the public and as of early July, began to allow drop-ins. Some amenities still require reservation. Temperature taking and masks (per the state mandate) is required of employees, staff, and visitors who come into the facility. Those who register results of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will have to re-test or return on a later date and test again. Hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Saturdays, and 12 - 4 p.m. Sundays. The Rec Center is closed twice daily for cleanings.

Due to financial constraints related to opening the Brighton Oasis Family Aquatic Park for a shorter season and with limited capacity, City Council voted to not open the water park for the summer of 2020.
Facilities that remain closed until further guidance due to state public health orders include the Eagle View Adult Center (1150 Prairie Center Pkwy.) and The Armory Performing Arts Center (300 Strong St.).
The Brighton Police Department remains open. Essential public safety services will continue and measures are in place to continue non-emergency operations.
Updates will be posted on the city website and social media sites.
