While in Golden we ask that everyone abide by individual COVID-19 protocols that are visible prior to entering each business. Each business's protocols should include information about masks, hand sanitization, and maximum occupancy. Bringing your own personal protective equipment such as masks and hand sanitiser is very important. Finally, PLANNING AHEAD whenever possible is more important than ever. This includes accommodations, dinner reservations and all activities.
