US: The state of Colorado will allow short-term rentals to open starting today, Monday June 1.
Julie Sutor, county communications director, said the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment plans to open short-term rentals statewide effective June 1.
On May 15, Summit County requested a variance from Governor Jared Polis’ safer-at-home order to open restaurants and short-term rentals. That request was later denied based on the county’s case data.
Breckenridge Mayor Eric Mamula said: “Some great news today, the governor decided that short-term lodging can open up on June 1.”
Specific details regarding the reopening will follow later today.
In its variance request, the county outlined a number of rules and regulations for the short-term rentals. Some of those guidelines include a recommendation of 72 hours between each booking, required signage and education materials about Summit County’s public health rules and a requirement that owners and managers follow Centers for Disease Control recommendations.
