COVID-19 Adams County Response & Recovery Teams


Supporting Our Community Through the COVID-19 Crisis

As part of a COVID-19 emergency management and recovery strategy, Adams County Government has launched this new website identifying key resources to support residents and businesses.

To better understand emerging needs, provide information, and aid in real-time updates, including policy and system shifts that may be needed, the following Response & Recovery Teams have been developed:

Adams County Government invites and welcomes participation on these critical teams from cross-sector community partners as there is an opportunity to come together to stay abreast of what others are doing related to emergency management, share resources with one another, and identify and lift opportunities for potential coordination of efforts. This includes information sharing, breaking down community-wide barriers, and aligning policies and resources to support emergency response efforts. Response & Recovery Teams will be working to accomplish the following: 
  1. Determine and monitor baseline and targets, in alignment with state and national COVID-19 response priorities
  2. Establish subcommittees that are needed to meet targets and are in alignment with the Governor Jared Polis’ Stay-At-Home Order and priorities established through his office
  3. Identify assets and resources and make them publicly available online 
  4. Identify specific resources to be put in place by Adams County Government in order to meet targets
  5. Determine where other work is needed to close the gap that can be addressed by Adams County Government and subcommittee members
Adams County has enlisted the support of the Rocky Mountain Cradle to Career (RMC2C) Partnership's staff, referred to as the backbone, to provide behind-the-scenes support for these seven strategic projects.
