COVID-19 in Telluride

An Update on COVID-19 From the River Club & San Miguel County


**Updated October 21, 2020**


San Miguel County has issued a new Public Health Order which is more aligned with the State's new Executive Order. The quarantine for second homeowners has been lifted and River Club deeded owners are able to use their planned summer weeks. Short-term lodging is permitted to open in phases and restaurants and shopping are open with social-distancing restrictions. Our management company, Alpine Lodging Telluride, is currently restricted to 75% lodging capacity. This percentage is subject to change.


All guests are required to read and be familiar with the most recent San Miguel County orders and adhere to them during every stay.
