Eagle County Current Status

As of February 2021, Eagle County is in Level “Yellow” on the state’s COVID-19 dial. The change requires updates to the local public health order

State guidelines for Level Yellow are available on the website for the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. Officials are also reminding the community that while local public health agencies have the ability to add local restrictions, they do not have the discretion to be less restrictive than state orders. In addition to the statewide requirements, the transition to Level Yellow will also allow spectators at sporting events again.

Safe Showing Pledge

After hearing concerns from neighbors in the community, we have put together a “Safe Showing Pledge” marketing campaign to share all the extra precautions taken for showing properties by following the state “safer at home” guidelines. Watch the video above to learn more about it.

These guidelines ensure to protect the Vail Valley and Buyers and Sellers. Showing that we care and the REALTOR® value is an important message. We have images created for you to share in your marketing, on your social media, and a Facebook profile image frame that says, “I’m committed to the safe showing pledge.”

Join us in sharing with our neighbors your commitment to the “Safe Showing Pledge.”
