The City of Fort Morgan will close the Quail Dunes Golf Course to the public starting Tuesday, March 24.
This is the latest closing enacted by the city out of concern for the health and safety of employees, patrons and the community during the Coronavirus pandemic. Public gathering places including the library/museum, the Armory rec center and the senior center were closed to the public on March 13, and other city buildings and offices followed last week.
The closures will last until further notice, with any decision on reopening to be based on guidance from public health agencies and state or federal authorities.
Fort Morgan’s city parks are still open at this time but park visitors are advised that social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times. This means keeping a minimum of six feet of space between persons and limiting any gatherings to fewer than 10 people.
If these criteria are not observed a decision could be made to close parks to the public.
Some golf course employees will continue to work while practicing social distancing to prepare the course for the season and to continue to work on improvement projects. The same will apply to parks staff whether the parks are open or closed.
Workers in the city’s utility departments are also continuing to work with some modifications to work routines.
City staff and management will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and take all necessary actions to ensure everyone is safe.
